Psalms 115

Not to us,  Lord, not to us
but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness.
Why do the nations say,
‘Where is their God?’
Our God is in heaven;
he does whatever pleases him.
But their idols are silver and gold,
made by human hands.
They have mouths, but cannot speak,
eyes, but cannot see.
They have ears, but cannot hear,
noses, but cannot smell.
They have hands, but cannot feel,
feet, but cannot walk,
nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
Those who make them will be like them,
and so will all who trust in them.
All you Israelites, trust in the  Lord
he is their help and shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in the  Lord
he is their help and shield.
11 You who fear him, trust in the  Lord
he is their help and shield.
12 The  Lord remembers us and will bless us:
he will bless his people Israel,
he will bless the house of Aaron,
13 he will bless those who fear the  Lord
small and great alike.
14 May the  Lord cause you to flourish,
both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the  Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
16 The highest heavens belong to the  Lord,
but the earth he has given to the human race.
17 It is not the dead who praise the  Lord,
those who go down to the place of silence;
18 it is we who extol the  Lord,
both now and for evermore.
Praise the  Lord.
Hebrew Hallelu Yah
