Psalm 115:1–18

Not to us, Lord, not to us

but to your name be the glory,l

because of your love and faithfulness.m

Why do the nations say,

“Where is their God?”n

Our God is in heaven;o

he does whatever pleases him.p

But their idols are silver and gold,q

made by human hands.r

They have mouths, but cannot speak,s

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, trustt in the Lord

he is their help and shield.

10 House of Aaron,u trust in the Lord

he is their help and shield.

11 You who fear him,v trust in the Lord

he is their help and shield.

12 The Lord remembersw us and will bless us:x

He will bless his people Israel,

he will bless the house of Aaron,

13 he will bless those who feary the Lord

small and great alike.

14 May the Lord cause you to flourish,z

both you and your children.

15 May you be blessed by the Lord,

the Maker of heavena and earth.

16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord,b

but the earth he has givenc to mankind.

17 It is not the deadd who praise the Lord,

those who go down to the place of silence;

18 it is we who extol the Lord,e

both now and forevermore.f

Praise the Lord.a g
