A (1-4) PRAISE YE YAH.
PRAISE YE the name of Yahweh;
PRAISE HIM, O ye servants of Yahweh.
Ye that stand in the house of Yahweh,
in the courts of the house of our God,
for Yahweh is good:
sing praises unto his name;
for it is pleasant.
FOR YAH hath chosen Jacob unto himself,
and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
B (5-7) For I know that Yahweh is great,
and that our Lord is above all gods.
Whatsoever Yahweh pleased,
THAT DID HE <06213> in heaven, and in earth,
in the seas, and all deep places.
He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth;
HE MAKETH <06213> lightnings for the rain;
C (7) he bringeth THE WIND <07307> out of his treasuries.
D (8, 9) Who smote the firstborn of Egypt,
both OF MAN and beast.
Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt,
upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
E (10, 11) Who smote great NATIONS <01471>,
and slew mighty kings;
Sihon king of the Amorites,
and Og king of Bashan,
and all the kingdoms of Canaan:
F (12) And gave their land for an heritage,
an heritage unto Israel HIS PEOPLE.
G (13) Thy name, O Yahweh, endureth for ever;
and thy memorial, O Yahweh, throughout all generations.
F1 (14) For Yahweh will judge HIS PEOPLE,
and he will repent himself concerning his servants.
E1 (15) The idols of THE HEATHEN <01471> are silver and gold,
D1 (15) the work OF MEN’S hands.
C1 (16, 17) They have mouths, but they speak not;
eyes have they, but they see not;
They have ears, but they hear not;
neither is there ANY BREATH <07307> in their mouths.
B1 (18) THEY THAT MAKE <06213> them are like unto them:
so is every one that trusteth in them.
A1 (19-21) Bless Yahweh, O house of Israel:
bless Yahweh, O house of Aaron:
Bless Yahweh, O house of Levi:
ye that fear Yahweh, bless Yahweh.
Blessed be Yahweh out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. PRAISE YE YAH.
