Psalm 115:1–8 — The New International Version (NIV)

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.

Psalm 115:1–8 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us,

But unto thy name give glory,

For thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake.

Wherefore should the heathen say,

Where is now their God?

But our God is in the heavens:

He hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.

Their idols are silver and gold,

The work of men’s hands.

They have mouths, but they speak not:

Eyes have they, but they see not:

They have ears, but they hear not:

Noses have they, but they smell not:

They have hands, but they handle not:

Feet have they, but they walk not:

Neither speak they through their throat.

They that make them are like unto them;

So is every one that trusteth in them.

Psalm 115:1–8 — New Living Translation (NLT)

Not to us, O Lord, not to us,

but to your name goes all the glory

for your unfailing love and faithfulness.

Why let the nations say,

“Where is their God?”

Our God is in the heavens,

and he does as he wishes.

Their idols are merely things of silver and gold,

shaped by human hands.

They have mouths but cannot speak,

and eyes but cannot see.

They have ears but cannot hear,

and mouths but cannot breathe.

They have hands but cannot feel,

and feet but cannot walk,

and throats but cannot make a sound.

And those who make idols are just like them,

as are all who trust in them.

Psalm 115:1–8 — The New King James Version (NKJV)

Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us,

But to Your name give glory,

Because of Your mercy,

Because of Your truth.

Why should the Gentiles say,

“So where is their God?”

But our God is in heaven;

He does whatever He pleases.

Their idols are silver and gold,

The work of men’s hands.

They have mouths, but they do not speak;

Eyes they have, but they do not see;

They have ears, but they do not hear;

Noses they have, but they do not smell;

They have hands, but they do not handle;

Feet they have, but they do not walk;

Nor do they mutter through their throat.

Those who make them are like them;

So is everyone who trusts in them.

They that make them are like unto them, —every one that confideth in them.
