Praise his name, you servants of the Lord, 2 who stand in the Lord's house, in the Temple of our God. 3 Praise the Lord, because he is good; sing praises to his name, because he is kind.[a] 4 He chose Jacob for himself, the people of Israel for his own.
5 I know that our Lord is great, greater than all the gods. 6 He does whatever he wishes in heaven and on earth, in the seas and in the depths below. 7 He brings storm clouds from the ends of the earth; he makes lightning for the storms, and he brings out the wind from his storeroom.
8 In Egypt he killed all the first-born of people and animals alike. 9 There he performed miracles and wonders to punish the king and all his officials. 10 He destroyed many nations and killed powerful kings: 11 Sihon, king of the Amorites, Og, king of Bashan, and all the kings in Canaan. 12 He gave their lands to his people; he gave them to Israel.
13 Lord, you will always be proclaimed as God; all generations will remember you. 14 The Lord will defend his people; he will take pity on his servants.
15 The gods of the nations are made of silver and gold; they are formed by human hands. 16 They have mouths, but cannot speak, and eyes, but cannot see. 17 They have ears, but cannot hear; they are not even able to breathe. 18 May all who made them and who trust in them become[b] like the idols they have made!
19 Praise the Lord, people of Israel; praise him, you priests of God! 20 Praise the Lord, you Levites; praise him, all you that worship him! 21 Praise the Lord in Zion, in Jerusalem, his home.
