Psalm 115

1 Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name give the glory:
    for the sake of your faithfulness and your loving-kindness.
2 Why should the heathen say 'Where is their God?':
    our God is in heaven, he does whatever he wills.
3 As for their idols, they are silver and gold:
    the work of human hands.
4 They have mouths, but speak not:
    they have eyes, but they cannot see.
5 They have ears, yet hear nothing:
    they have noses, but cannot smell.
6 Hands they have, but handle nothing, feet, but they do not walk:
    they make no sound with their throats.
7 Those who make them shall be like them:
    so shall everyone that trusts in them.
8 O Israel, trust in the Lord:
    he is your help and your shield.
9 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord:
    he is your help and your shield.
10 You that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord:
    he is your help and your shield.
11 The Lord has remembered us and he will bless us:
    he will bless the house of Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron.
12 He will bless all those that fear the Lord:
    both high and low together.
13 May the Lord increase you greatly:
    you and your children after you.
14 The blessing of the Lord be upon you:
    he that made heaven and earth.
15 As for the heavens, they are the Lord's:
    but the earth he has given to the children of Adam.
16 The dead do not praise the Lord:
    nor do any that go down to silence.
17 But we will bless the Lord:
    both now and for evermore. O praise the Lord.
