Psalm 135

     Give glory and praise to God with great celebration. Boast in him; sing and rave about his character and reputation, all who serve him.

     I celebrate Jehovah for he is good! It makes me happy to worship him in song, praising his name, for he has chosen me to be the object of his grace and unconditional love, in spite of my sinfulness – that is mercy!

     You are teaching me your might, Lord; you are greater than anything else I would choose to worship. Whatever you desire to bend and change, you do. All is clay in your hands, Master Potter. If it serves your purpose to bring about chaos, I want to be at peace in the midst of that chaos, trusting you.

     You are the Blessed Controller of all history, the present day and the future. Your reputation and all that you are, O Lord, endures forever, your remembrance through all generations. You plead the cause of your people and show compassion on those who love you.

     You made man in your image and depraved man makes gods in his own image. Those who trust in such lifeless images will eventually be as lifeless themselves.

   Give glory and praise to God with great celebration. Boast in him; sing and rave about his character and reputation, all who acknowledge his authority and submit to him in appropriate awe.
