Psalms 115

PSALM 115

The Idols

Not to us, O  lord, not to us, but only to your name give glory, because of your mercy and your truth! lest at any time [3should say 1the 2nations], Where is their God? But our God in the heaven and in the earth [2all 3as much as 4he wants 1does]. The idols of the nations are silver and gold -- works of the hands of men. [2a mouth 1They have], but they shall not speak; [2eyes 1they have], but they shall not see; [2ears 1they have], but they shall not hear; [2noses 1they have], but they shall not smell; [2hands 1they have], but they shall not handle; [2feet 1they have], but they shall not walk; they shall not speak out loud through their throat. [6likened 7to them 1Let 5become 2the ones 3making 4them]! and all the ones yielding upon them. The house of Israel hopes upon the  lord; [2helper 3and 4defender 1he is their]. 10 The house of Aaron hopes upon the  lord; [2helper 3and 4defender 1he is their]. 11 The ones fearing the  lord hoped upon the  lord; [2helper 3and 4defender 1he is their]. 12 The  lord was remembering us; he blessed us; he blessed the house of Israel; he blessed the house of Aaron; 13 he blessed the ones fearing the  lord, the small with the great. 14 May the  lord add unto you; unto you and unto your sons. 15 You are being blessed by the  lord, the one making the heaven and the earth. 16 The heaven of the heaven belongs to the  lord; but the earth he gave to the sons of men. 17 [4not 1The 2dead 3shall] praise you, O  lord, nor all the ones going down into Hades. 18 But we the living, we shall bless the  lord from the present and unto the eon.
