The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD.
    2 Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God.
    3 Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.
    4 For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his own possession.
    5 For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
    6 Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
    7 He causeth the clouds to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth forth the wind out of his treasuries.
    8 He smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
    9 He sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
    10 He smote many 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 an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.
    13 Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.
    14 For the LORD will judge his people, and he will have compassion on 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: and so shall be every one that trusteth in them.
    19 Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of Aaron:
    20 Bless the LORD, O house of Levi: ye that fear the LORD, bless the LORD.
    21 Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
