Psalm 115

GLORY TO GOD ALONE

Not to us, Lord, not to us,

but to your name give glory

because of your faithful love, because of your truth.h

Why should the nations say,

“Where is their God?”i

Our God is in heaven

and does whatever he pleases.j

Their idols are silver and gold,

made by human hands.k

They have mouths but cannot speak,

eyes, but cannot see.

They have ears but cannot hear,

noses, but cannot smell.l

They have hands but cannot feel,

feet, but cannot walk.m

They cannot make a sound with their throats.n

Those who make them areA just like them,

as are all who trust in them.o

Israel,B trust in the Lord!p

He is their help and shield.q

10 House of Aaron, trust in the Lord!r

He is their help and shield.s

11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!t

He is their help and shield.

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us.

He will bless the house of Israel;

he will bless the house of Aaron;u

13 he will bless those who fear the Lord

small and great alike.v

14 May the Lord add to your numbers,

both yours and your children’s.w

15 May you be blessed by the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.x

16 The heavens are the Lord’s,C

but the earth he has given to the human race.y

17 It is not the dead who praise the Lord,

nor any of those descending into the silence of death.z

18 But we will bless the Lord,

both now and forever.aa

Hallelujah!

About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
