Psalm 134 (Matins (Polyeleos))
(Psalm 135 – Hebrew Numbering)
Praise ye the name of the Lord; O ye servants, praise the Lord.
Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God, Praise ye the Lord, for the Lord is good; chant unto His name, for it is good.
For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, Israel for His own possession.
For I know that the Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
All that the Lord hath willed He hath done, in heaven and on the earth, in the seas and in all the abysses.
Bringing clouds up from the uttermost parts of the earth, lightnings for the rain hath He made.
He bringeth winds out of His treasuries; He smote the firstborn of Egypt, from man unto beast. He sent forth signs and marvels in the midst of thee, O Egypt, on Pharaoh and on all his servants.
He smote many nations and slew mighty kings.
Seon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of the land of Basan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan.
And He gave their land for an inheritance, an inheritance for Israel His people.
O Lord, Thy name endureth for ever, and Thy memorial unto generation and generation.
For the Lord will judge His people, and because of His servants shall He be comforted.
The idols of the nations are 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, nor is there any breath in their mouth.
Let those that make them become like unto them, and all they that put their trust in them.
O house of Israel, bless ye the Lord.
O house of Aaron, bless ye the Lord.
O house of Levi, bless ye the Lord.
He that fear the Lord, bless ye the Lord.
Blessed is the Lord out of Zion, Who dwelleth in Jerusalem.
