Psalms 115

To Your Name Give Glory

1 a  Not to us, O  Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
b  for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
2 Why should the nations say,
c  Where is their God?”
3 d  Our God is in the heavens;
e  he does all that he pleases.
4 f  Their idols are silver and gold,
g  the work of human hands.
5They have mouths h  but do not speak;
eyes, but do not see.
6They have ears, but do not hear;
noses, but do not smell.
7They have hands, but do not feel;
feet, but do not walk;
and they do not make a sound in their throat.
8 i  Those who make them become like them;
so do all who trust in them.
9 O j  Israel,
Masoretic Text; many Hebrew manuscripts, Septuagint, Syriac  O house of Israel
l  trust in the  Lord!
He is their m  help and their shield.
10O n  house of Aaron, trust in the  Lord!
He is their help and o  their shield.
11You p  who fear the  Lord, trust in the  Lord!
He is their help and their shield.
12 The  Lord has remembered us; he will bless us;
he will bless q  the house of Israel;
he will bless r  the house of Aaron;
13he will s  bless those who fear the  Lord,
t  both the small and the great.
14 May the  Lord u  give you increase,
you and your children!
15May v  you be blessed by the  Lord,
w  who made heaven and earth!
16 The heavens are the  Lord’s heavens,
but the earth he has given to the children of man.
17 x  The dead do not praise the  Lord,
nor do any who go down into y  silence.
18But z  we will bless the  Lord
from this time forth and forevermore.
aa  Praise the  Lord!
