When Brothers Dwell in Unity

A Song of (A)Ascents. Of David.

133 Behold, how good and pleasant it is
    when (B)brothers dwell in unity![a]
It is like the precious (C)oil on (D)the head,
    running down on the beard,
on the beard of Aaron,
    running down on (E)the collar of his robes!
It is like (F)the dew of (G)Hermon,
    which falls on (H)the mountains of Zion!
For there the Lord (I)has commanded the blessing,
    life forevermore.

Come, Bless the Lord

A Song of (J)Ascents.

134 Come, bless the Lord, all you (K)servants of the Lord,
    who (L)stand (M)by night in the house of the Lord!
(N)Lift up your hands to (O)the holy place
    and bless the Lord!

May the Lord (P)bless you (Q)from Zion,
    he who (R)made heaven and earth!

Your Name, O Lord, Endures Forever

135 (S)Praise the Lord!
Praise the name of the Lord,
    give praise, O (T)servants of the Lord,
who (U)stand in the house of the Lord,
    in (V)the courts of the house of our God!
Praise the Lord, for (W)the Lord is good;
    sing to his name, (X)for it is pleasant![b]
For the Lord has (Y)chosen Jacob for himself,
    Israel as his (Z)own possession.

For I know that (AA)the Lord is great,
    and that our Lord is above all gods.
(AB)Whatever the Lord pleases, he does,
    in heaven and on earth,
    in the seas and all deeps.
(AC)He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth,
    who (AD)makes lightnings for the rain
    and brings forth the wind from his (AE)storehouses.

He it was who (AF)struck down the firstborn of Egypt,
    both of man and of beast;
who in your midst, O Egypt,
    sent (AG)signs and wonders
    against Pharaoh and all his servants;
10 (AH)who struck down many nations
    and killed mighty kings,
11 (AI)Sihon, king of the Amorites,
    and (AJ)Og, king of Bashan,
    and (AK)all the kingdoms of Canaan,
12 and (AL)gave their land as a heritage,
    a heritage to his people Israel.

13 (AM)Your name, O Lord, endures forever,
    (AN)your renown,[c] O Lord, throughout all ages.
14 (AO)For the Lord will vindicate his people
    and (AP)have compassion on his servants.

15 (AQ)The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
    the work of human hands.
16 They have mouths, but do not speak;
    they have eyes, but do not see;
17 they have ears, but do not hear,
    nor is there any breath in their mouths.
18 Those who make them become like them,
    so do all who trust in them.

19 (AR)O house of Israel, bless the Lord!
    O house of Aaron, bless the Lord!
20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord!
    You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!
21 Blessed be the Lord (AS)from Zion,
    he who (AT)dwells in Jerusalem!
(AU)Praise the Lord!
