3: Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto his name; for it is pleasant.
4: For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.
5: For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods.
6: Whatsoever the LORD pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places.
7: He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; he maketh lightnings for the rain; he bringeth the wind out of his treasuries.
8: Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and beast.
9: Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.
10: Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;
11: Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:
12: And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel his people.
13: Thy name, O LORD, endureth for ever; and thy memorial, O LORD, throughout all generations.

18: They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.
19: Bless the LORD, O house of Israel: bless the LORD, O house of Aaron:
