PSALM 113
In exitu Israel. God hath shewn his power in delivering his people: idols are vain. The Hebrews divide this into two psalms.

DIV class='vN'>Alleluia

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.
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.
