Psalm 135Ā Contemporary English Version (CEV)šŸ•Š

In Praise of theĀ Lordā€™s KindnessšŸ•Š

135:1 Shout praises to theĀ Lord!
You are his servants,
so praise his name.
2Ā All who serve in the temple
of theĀ LordĀ our God,
3Ā Ā Ā Ā Ā come and shout praises.
Praise the name of theĀ Lord!
He is kind and good.
4Ā He chose the family of Jacob
and the people of Israel
for his very own.

5Ā TheĀ LordĀ is much greater
than any other god.
6Ā He does as he chooses
in heaven and on earth
and deep in the sea.
7Ā TheĀ LordĀ makes the clouds rise
from far across the earth,
and he makes lightning
to go with the rain.
Then from his secret place
he sends out the wind.

8Ā TheĀ LordĀ killed the first-born
of people and animals
in the land of Egypt.
9Ā God used miracles and wonders
to fight the king of Egypt
and all of his officials.
10Ā He destroyed many nations
and killed powerful kings,
11Ā including King Sihon
of the Amorites
and King Og of Bashan.
He conquered every kingdom
in the land of Canaan
12Ā Ā Ā Ā Ā and gave their property
to his people Israel.

13Ā The name of theĀ Lord
will be remembered forever,
and he will be famous
for all time to come.
14Ā TheĀ LordĀ will bring justice
and show mercy
to all
who serve him.

15Ā Idols of silver and gold
are made
and worshiped
in other nations.
16Ā They have a mouth and eyes,
but they canā€™t speak or see.
17Ā They are completely deaf,
and they canā€™t breathe.
18Ā Everyone who makes idols
and all who trust them
will end up as helpless
as their idols.

19Ā Everyone in Israel,
come praise theĀ Lord!
All the family of Aaron
20Ā and all the tribe of Levi,
come praise theĀ Lord!
All of his worshipers,
come praise theĀ Lord.
21Ā Praise theĀ LordĀ from Zion!
He lives here in Jerusalem.
Shout praises to theĀ Lord!šŸ•Š
