Psalms 135:20

Context

135:20 O family of Levi, praise the Lord!

You loyal followers 4  of the Lord, praise the Lord!

1 sn Psalm 135. The psalmist urges God’s people to praise him because he is the incomparable God and ruler of the world who has accomplished great things for Israel.

2 tn Heb “stand.”

3 tn Heb “for [it is] pleasant.” The translation assumes that it is the Lord’s “name” that is pleasant. Another option is to understand the referent of “it” as the act of praising (see Ps 147:1).

4 tn Heb “fearers.”
