Book V
Praise for Jehovah’s Wonderful Works. Vanity of Idols
[1]  PRAISE 1 ye Jehovah.
Praise ye the name of Jehovah;
Praise him, O ye servants of Jehovah,
[2]  Ye that stand in the house of Jehovah,
In the courts of the house of our God.
[3]  Praise ye Jehovah; for Jehovah is good:
Sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.
[4]  For Jehovah 2 hath chosen Jacob unto himself,
And Israel for his own possession.
[5]  For I know that Jehovah is great,
And that our Lord is above all gods.
[6]  Whatsoever Jehovah pleased, that hath he done,
In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps;
[7]  Who causeth the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth;
Who maketh lightnings for the rain;
Who bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries;
[8]  Who smote the first-born of Egypt,
Both of man and beast;
[9]  Who sent signs and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt,
Upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants;
[10]  Who smote many 3 nations,
And slew mighty kings,
[11]  Sihon king of the Amorites,
And Og king of Bashan,
And all the kingdoms of Canaan,
[12]  And gave their land for a heritage,
A heritage unto Israel his people.
[13]  Thy name, O Jehovah, endureth for ever;
Thy memorial name, O Jehovah, throughout all generations.
[14]  For Jehovah will judge his people,
And repent himself concerning his servants.
[15]  The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
The work of men’s hands.
[16]  They have mouths, but they speak not;
Eyes have they, but they see not;
[17]  They have ears, but they hear not;
Neither is there any breath in their mouths.
[18]  They that make them shall be like unto them;
Yea, every one that trusteth in them.
[19]  O house of Israel, bless ye Jehovah:
O house of Aaron, bless ye Jehovah:
[20]  O house of Levi, bless ye Jehovah:
Ye that fear Jehovah, bless ye Jehovah.
[21]  Blessed be Jehovah out of Zion,
Who dwelleth at Jerusalem.
Praise 4 ye Jehovah.
