Praise the name of the Lord! Praise, you servants of the Lord,
who stand in the house of the Lord,
in the courts of the house of our God!
Praise the Lord; the Lord is good! Sing to God’s name; it is gracious!
For the Lord has chosen Jacob, Israel as a treasured possession.

I know that the Lord is great, our Lord is greater than all gods.
Whatever the Lord wishes he does in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and in all the deeps.
He raises storm clouds from the end of the earth, makes lightning and rain,
brings forth wind from the store-house.

Psalm 135:1-7
