Psalms 135

6 Whatever Yahweh pleased, that he has done,

in heaven and in earth, to do as he does,

there is none like Yah, there is none like Yahweh,

there is none who acts as king of the gods[1]

in the seas and in all deeps;

7 who causes the clouds to rise from the ends of the earth;

who makes lightnings with the rain;

who brings the wind out of his treasuries;

Who struck the firstborn of Egypt,

both of man and animal;


10 who struck many nations,

and killed mighty kings,

11 Sihon king of the Amorites,

Og king of Bashan,

and all the kingdoms of Canaan,

12 and gave their land for a heritage,

a heritage to Israel, his people.

13 Your name, Yahweh, endures forever;

your renown, Yahweh, throughout all generations.


15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold,

the work of men’s hands.

16 They have mouths, but they can’t speak.

They have eyes, but they can’t see.


Psalms 99

A Psalm of David

1 Yahweh reigns! Let the peoples tremble.

He sits enthroned among the cherubim.

Let the earth be moved.

2 Yahweh is great in Zion.

He is high above all the peoples.


Exalt Yahweh our God.

Worship at his footstool.

He is Holy!
