Psalms 1151Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name let glory be given, because of your mercy and your unchanging faith. 2Why may the nations say, Where is now their God? 3But our God is in heaven: he has done whatever was pleasing to him. 4Their images are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. 5They have mouths, but no voice; they have eyes, but they see not; 6They have ears, but no hearing; they have noses, but no sense of smell; 7They have hands without feeling, and feet without power of walking; and no sound comes from their throat. 8Those who make them are like them; and so is everyone who puts his faith in them. 9O Israel, have faith in the Lord: he is their help and their breastplate. 10O house of Aaron, have faith in the Lord: he is their help and their breastplate. 11You worshippers of the Lord, have faith in the Lord: he is their help and their breastplate. 12The Lord has kept us in mind and will give us his blessing; he will send blessings on the house of Israel and on the house of Aaron. 13He will send blessings on the worshippers of the Lord, on the small and on the great. 14May the Lord give you and your children still greater increase. 15May you have the blessing of the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 16The heavens are the Lord's; but the earth he has given to the children of men. 17The dead do not give praise to the Lord; or those who go down to the underworld. 18But we will give praise to the Lord now and for ever. Praise be to the Lord.
