Psalms - Chapter 115

To God Belong the Praise

1 Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, But to Your name give glory, Because of Your mercy, Because of Your truth.

2 Why should the Gentiles say, "So where [is] their God?"

3 But our God [is] in heaven; He does whatever He pleases.

Idols - Lifeless

4 Their idols [are] silver and gold, The work of men's hands.

5 They have mouths, but they do not speak; Eyes they have, but they do not see;

6 They have ears, but they do not hear; Noses they have, but they do not smell;

7 They have hands, but they do not handle; Feet they have, but they do not walk; Nor do they mutter through their throat.

8 Those who make them are like them; [So is] everyone who trusts in them.

Call to Hope in the Lord

9 O Israel, trust in the LORD; He [is] their help and their shield.

10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD; He [is] their help and their shield.

11 You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD; He [is] their help and their shield.

12 The LORD has been mindful of [us;] He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.

13 He will bless those who fear the LORD, [Both] small and great.

14 May the LORD give you increase more and more, You and your children.

15 [May] you [be] blessed by the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven, [even] the heavens, [are] the LORD's; But the earth He has given to the children of men.

17 The dead do not praise the LORD, Nor any who go down into silence.

18 But we will bless the LORD From this time forth and forevermore. Praise the LORD!
