Psalm 113 (Ninth Royal Hour, Theophany)
(Psalm 114 and 115 – Hebrew Numbering)
When Israel went out of Egypt, and the house of Jacob from among a barbarous people, Judea became His sanctuary, Israel His dominion.
The sea beheld and fled, Jordan turned back.
The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like lambs of flocks.
What aileth thee, O sea, that thou fleddest?
And thou Jordan, that thou didst turn back?
Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills like lambs of flocks?
At the presence of the Lord the earth was shaken, at the presence of the God of Jacob, Who turneth the rock into pools of waters, and the precipice into fountains of waters.
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy and Thy truth, Lest haply the heathen say: Where is their God?
But our God is in heaven and on earth; all things soever He hath willed, He hath done.
The idols of the nations are of silver and gold, the works of the hands of men. They have a mouth, but shall not speak; eyes have they, and shall not see.
Ears have they, and shall not hear; noses have they, and shall not smell.
Hands they have, and shall not feel; feet have they, and shall not walk; they shall make no sound in their throat.
Let those that make them become like unto them, and all that put their trust in them.
The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord; their helper and defender is He.
The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord; their helper and defender is He.
They that fear the Lord have hoped in the Lord; their helper and defender is He.
The Lord being mindful of us, hath blessed us.
He hath blessed the house of Israel, He hath blessed the house of Aaron.
He hath blessed them that fear the Lord, the little with the great.
The Lord grant you increase, to you and to your children.
Ye are blessed of the Lord, Who made heaven and the earth.
The heaven of heaven belongeth to the Lord, but the earth He gave unto the sons of men.
Not the dead shall praise Thee, O Lord, nor any that go down to hades.
But we the living will bless the Lord form henceforth and for evermore.
