Psalm 135

“For I know that the LORD is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever the LORD pleases, he does, in heaven and on earth” (v5-6). The psalmist rejoiced that the God of Abraham wasn’t like the false idols who couldn’t hear, speak, or act (v15-17). He uses His power for creating and judging, and also for saving: He rescued His enslaved people from Egypt “and gave their land as a heritage, a heritage to his people Israel” (v12). God’s “renown,” His fame, endures and spreads through the earth (v13).

“You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord!” (v20). Our love for the Lord and gratitude for His salvation spills over into blessing, praise, and witness.
