Psalms 115

PSALM 115

The Idols

1Not to us, O  lord, not to us, but only to your name give glory, because of your mercy and your truth! 2lest at any time [3should say 1the 2nations], Where is their God? 3 But our God in the heaven and in the earth [2all 3as much as 4he wants 1does]. 4The idols of the nations are silver and gold -- works of the hands of men. 5[2a mouth 1They have], but they shall not speak; [2eyes 1they have], but they shall not see; 6[2ears 1they have], but they shall not hear; [2noses 1they have], but they shall not smell; 7[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. 8[6likened 7to them 1Let 5become 2the ones 3making 4them]! and all the ones yielding upon them. 9The house of Israel hopes upon the  lord; [2helper 3and 4defender 1he is their]. 10The house of Aaron hopes upon the  lord; [2helper 3and 4defender 1he is their]. 11The ones fearing the  lord hoped upon the  lord; [2helper 3and 4defender 1he is their]. 12The  lord was remembering us; he blessed us; he blessed the house of Israel; he blessed the house of Aaron; 13he blessed the ones fearing the  lord, the small with the great. 14May the  lord add unto you; unto you and unto your sons. 15You are being blessed by the  lord, the one making the heaven and the earth. 16The 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. 18But we the living, we shall bless the  lord from the present and unto the eon.
