THE HOLY BIBLE Douay-Rheims

Book of Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Eman, Ethan, sons of Core, compiled by Esdras)

133:1¤ Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity:

133:2Like the precious ointment on the head, that ran down upon the beard, the beard of Aaron, Which ran down to the skirt of his garment:

133:3As the dew of Hermon, which descendeth upon mount Sion. For there the Lord hath commanded blessing, and life for evermore.

134:1¤ Behold now bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord: Who stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

134:2In the nights lift up your hands to the holy places, and bless ye the Lord.

134:3May the Lord out of Sion bless thee, he that made heaven and earth.

135:1¤ Praise ye the name of the Lord: O you his servants, praise the Lord:

135:2You that stand in the house of the Lord, in the courts of the house of our God.

135:3Praise ye the Lord, for the Lord is good: sing ye to his name, for it is sweet.

135:4For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself: Israel for his own possession.

135:5For I have known that the Lord is great, and our God is above all gods.

135:6Whatsoever the Lord pleased he hath done, in heaven, in earth, in the sea, and in all the deeps.

135:7He bringeth up clouds from the end of the earth: he hath made lightnings for the rain. He bringeth forth winds out of his stores:

135:8He slew the firstborn of Egypt from man even unto beast.

135:9He sent forth signs and wonders in the midst of thee, O Egypt: upon Pharao, and upon all his servants.

135:10He smote many nations, and slew mighty kings:

135:11Sehon king of the Amorrhites, and Og king of Basan, and all the kingdoms of Chanaan.

135:12And gave their land for an inheritance, for an inheritance to his people Israel.

135:13Thy name, O Lord, is for ever: thy memorial, O Lord, unto all generations.

135:14For the Lord will judge his people, and will be entreated in favour of his servants.

135:15The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, the works of men's hands.

135:16They have a mouth, but they speak not: they have eyes, but they see not.

135:17They have ears, but they hear not: neither is there any breath in their mouths.

135:18Let them that make them be like to them: and every one that trusteth in them.

135:19Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: bless the Lord, O house of Aaron.

135:20Bless the Lord, O house of Levi: you that fear the Lord, bless the Lord.

135:21Blessed be the Lord out of Sion, who dwelleth in Jerusalem.
