Psalm 135: 1-3; 13-21 (Inclusive Bible)
Alleluia! Praise the Name of YHWH—
sing praise, you who serve the Most High,
who stand in the house of YHWH,
in the courts of God’s house!
Alleluia! God is good!
[Sing praises to God’s name because it is beautiful!]
YHWH, your Name stands forever;
your fame is told from one generation to the next.
For you do justice for your people;
and you have compassion for your faithful.
The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
They have mouths but they can’t speak;
they have eyes but they can’t see.
They have ears but can’t hear;
there is never a breath on their lips.
Their makers will come to be like them,
and so will all who trust in them!
House of Israel, bless YHWH!
Priests of the temple, bless YHWH!
Attendants of the sanctuary, bless YHWH!
You who revere YHWH, bless YHWH!
Blessings from Zion upon YHWH,
who dwells in Jerusalem!
