Psalm 133

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. A psalm of David.

1 How good and pleasant it is

when God’s people live together in peace!

2 It’s like the special olive oil

that was poured on Aaron’s head.

It ran down on his beard

and on the collar of his robe.

3 It’s as if the dew of Mount Hermon

were falling on Mount Zion.

There the Lord gives his blessing.

He gives life that never ends.

Psalm 134

A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.

1 All of you who serve the Lord, praise the Lord.

All of you who serve at night in the house of the Lord, praise him.

2 Lift up your hands in the temple

and praise the Lord.

3 May the Lord bless you from Zion.

He is the Maker of heaven and earth.

Psalm 135

1 Praise the Lord.

Praise the name of the Lord.

You who serve the Lord, praise him.

2 You who serve in the house of the Lord, praise him.

You who serve in the courtyards of the temple of our God, praise him.

3 Praise the Lord, because he is good.

Sing praise to his name, because that is pleasant.

4 The Lord has chosen the people of Jacob to be his own.

He has chosen Israel to be his special treasure.

5 I know that the Lord is great.

I know that our Lord is greater than all gods.

6 The Lord does anything he wants to do

in the heavens and on the earth.

He does it even in the deepest parts of the oceans.

7 He makes clouds rise from one end of the earth to the other.

He sends lightning with the rain.

He brings the wind out of his storerooms.

8 He killed the oldest son of each family in Egypt.

He struck down the oldest males that were born to people and animals.

9 He did miraculous signs in Egypt.

He did wonders against Pharaoh and everyone who served him.

10 He destroyed many nations.

He killed mighty kings.

11 He killed Sihon, the king of the Amorites,

and Og, the king of Bashan.

He killed all of the kings of Canaan.

12 He gave their land as a gift

to his people Israel.

13 Lord, your name continues forever.

Lord, your fame will last for all time to come.

14 When the Lord hands down his sentence, it will be in his people’s favor.

He will show deep concern for those who serve him.

15 The statues of the gods of the nations are made of silver and gold.

They are made by the hands of men.

16 They have mouths, but they can’t speak.

They have eyes, but they can’t see.

17 They have ears, but they can’t hear.

They have mouths, but they can’t breathe.

18 Those who make statues of gods will be like them.

So will all those who trust in them.

19 People of Israel, praise the Lord.

Priests of Aaron, praise the Lord.

20 Tribe of Levi, praise the Lord.

You who have respect for the Lord, praise him.

21 Give praise to the Lord in Zion.

Give praise to the One who lives in Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.

Psalm 137

1 We were sitting by the rivers of Babylon.

We cried when we remembered what had happened to Zion.

2 On the nearby poplar trees

we hung up our harps.

3 Those who held us as prisoners asked us to sing.

Those who enjoyed hurting us ordered us to sing joyful songs.

They said, “Sing one of the songs of Zion to us!”

4 How can we sing the songs of the Lord

while we are in another land?

5 Jerusalem, if I forget you,

may my right hand never be able to play the harp again.

6 If I don’t remember you,

may my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth so I can’t sing.

May it happen if I don’t consider Jerusalem

to be my greatest joy.

7 Lord, remember what the people of Edom did

on the day Jerusalem fell.

“Tear it down!” they cried.

“Tear it down to the ground!”

8 People of Babylon, you are sentenced to be destroyed.

Happy are those who pay you back

for what you have done to us.

9 Happy are those who grab your babies

and smash them against the rocks.

Psalm 138

A psalm of David.

1 Lord, I will praise you with all my heart.

In front of those who think they are gods

I will sing praise to you.

2 I will bow down facing your holy temple.

I will praise your name,

because you are loving and faithful.

You have honored your name and your word

more than anything else.

3 When I called out to you, you answered me.

You made me strong and brave.

4 Lord, may all of the kings on earth praise you

when they hear about what you have promised.

5 Lord, may they sing about what you have done,

because your glory is great.

6 The Lord is in heaven. But he watches over those who are free of pride.

He knows those who are proud and stays far away from them.

7 Trouble is all around me,

but you keep me alive.

You reach out your hand to put a stop to the anger of my enemies.

With your powerful right hand you save me.

8 Lord, you will do everything you have planned for me.

Lord, your faithful love continues forever.

You have done so much for us. Don’t stop now.

NIrV

About New International Reader’s Version

The New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) was developed to help early readers understand the Bible. Begun in 1992, the NIrV is a simplification of the New International Version (NIV). The NIrV uses shorter words and sentences so that those with a typical fourth grade reading level can comprehend what they are reading. The chapters have been separated into shorter sections and most have titles that clearly indicate what the section is all about. The NIrV will be a valuable translation to those for whom English is a second language. The NIrV still relies on the best and oldest copies of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts for its translation, guaranteeing that those who read it are getting the actual Word of God.
