The Book of Psalms

Psalm 113

In exitu Israel.

God hath shewn his power in delivering his people: idols are vain. The Hebrews divide this into two psalms.
Alleluia.


1
When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a barbarous people:

2
Judea was made his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.

3
The sea saw and fled: Jordan was turned back.

4
The mountains skipped like rams, and the hills like the lambs of the flock.

5
What ailed thee, O thou sea, that thou didst flee: and thou, O Jordan, that thou wast turned back?

6
Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills, like lambs of the flock?

7
At the presence of the Lord the earth was moved, at the presence of the God of Jacob:

8
Who turned the rock into pools of water, and the stony hill into fountains of waters.
Psalm 113


1
Not to us, O Lord, not to us; but to thy name give glory.

2
For thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake: lest the Gentiles should say: Where is their God?

3
But our God is in heaven: he hath done all things whatsoever he would.

4
The idols of the Gentiles are silver and gold, the works of the hands of men.

5
They have mouths and speak not: they have eyes and see not.

6
They have ears and hear not: they have noses and smell not.

7
They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: neither shall they cry out through their throat.

8
Let them that make them become like unto them: and all such as trust in them.

9
The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

10
The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

11
They that fear the Lord have hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

12
The Lord hath been mindful of us, and hath blessed us. He hath blessed the house of Israel: he hath blessed the house of Aaron.

13
He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, both little and great.

14
May the Lord add blessings upon you: upon you, and upon your children.

15
Blessed be you of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

16
The heaven of heaven is the Lord's: but the earth he has given to the children of men.

17
The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: nor any of them that go down to hell.

18
But we that live bless the Lord: from this time now and for ever.
