An Offering for Sunday

Psalm 134


Praise the name of the Lord; praise, servants, the Lord,

Those who stand in the House of the Lord, in the courts of the House of our Lord.

Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good; chant psalms to his Name for it is good.

For the Lord chose Jacob for himself, Israel as a possession for himself.

For I have known that the Lord is great and that our Lord is beyond all gods.

All, as much as the Lord wanted, he did in Heaven and on the earth, in the seas and in all the abysses.

Leading clouds from the end of the earth, he made lightnings into rain; he who leads winds out of his treasure-houses,

He who struck the first-born of Egypt from man to beast.

He sent out signs and wonders into your midst, Egypt, into the midst of Pharaoh and into the midst of all his servants,

He who struck many nations and killed mighty kings—

Sion the King of the Amorites and Og King of the Land of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan

And gave their land as an inheritance, an inheritance for his people Israel.

Lord, may your name be to the Age and your memorial from generation to generation.

For the Lord will judge his people and will be refreshed upon his servants.

The idols of the nations are silver and gold, works of the hands of men.

They have a mouth and will not speak; they have eyes and will not see.

They have ears and will not hear, for neither is there spirit in their mouth.

May those who make these things become like them, and all who have put their trust in them.

House of Israel, you will bless the Lord; house of Aaron, you will bless the Lord; house of Levi, you will bless the Lord.

Those who fear the Lord, you will bless the Lord.

Blessed is the Lord from Sion, he who dwells in Jerusalem.
