Psalms 115

To Your Name Give Glory

1 aNot to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
bfor the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
2Why should the nations say,
cWhere is their God?”
3 dOur God is in the heavens;
ehe does all that he pleases.
4 fTheir idols are silver and gold,
gthe work of human hands.
5They have mouths, hbut 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 iThose who make them become like them;
so do all who trust in them.
9O jIsrael,
Masoretic Text; many Hebrew manuscripts, Septuagint, Syriac  O house of Israel
ltrust in the Lord!
He is their mhelp and their shield.
10O nhouse of Aaron, trust in the Lord!
He is their help and otheir shield.
11You pwho fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!
He is their help and their shield.
12The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us;
he will bless qthe house of Israel;
he will bless rthe house of Aaron;
13he will sbless those who fear the Lord,
tboth the small and the great.
14May the Lord ugive you increase,
you and your children!
15May vyou be blessed by the Lord,
wwho made heaven and earth!
16The heavens are the Lord’s heavens,
but the earth he has given to the children of man.
17 xThe dead do not praise the Lord,
nor do any who go down into ysilence.
18But zwe will bless the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore.
aaPraise the Lord!
