1Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise him, O ye servants of the LORD. 2Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God, 3Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant. 4For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.5For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. 6Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places. 7He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
