Give Praise, O Servants of the LORD
(Psalm 115:1–18)

1Prayse ye the Lorde, prayse ye the name of God: prayse it ye seruauntes of God.

2Ye that stande in the house of God: in the courtes of the house of our Lord,

3Prayse ye the Lorde, for God is gratious: sing psalmes vnto his name, for it is pleasaunt.

4For the Lorde hath chosen Iacob vnto hym selfe: and Israel for his owne possession.

5For I knowe that God is great: and that our Lorde is aboue all gods.

6God doth whatsoeuer pleaseth hym in heauen and in earth: in the sea, and in all deepe places.

7He causeth cloudes to ascende from the lowest part of the earth: he maketh it to lighten when it rayneth, he bringeth wyndes out of his treasure houses.

8He smote the first borne of Egypt: aswell of beast as of man.

9He sent tokens and wonders into the mydst of thee O Egypt: against Pharao and all his seruauntes.

10He smote many nations: and slue mightie kinges.

11Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og the king of Bashan: and all the kingdomes of Chanaan.

12And he gaue their lande for an inheritaunce: euen for an heritaunce to Israel his people.

13Thy name O God endureth for euer: there wil be a remembraunce of thee O God, from one generation to another.

14For God wyll iudge his people: and he will be pacified beyng displeased with his seruauntes.

15As for the idols of the Heathen they are but siluer and golde: the worke of mens handes.

16They haue a mouth and speake not: they haue eyes but they see not.

17They haue eares and they heare not: yea there is no breath in their mouth.

18They that make them are lyke vnto them: and euery one that putteth his trust in them.

19Blesse God ye the house of Israel: blesse God ye the house of Aaron.

20Blesse God ye the house of Leui: ye that feare God, blesse God.

21Blessed be God out of Sion: who dwelleth at Hierusalem. Prayse ye the Lorde.
