1 Not to us, ADONAI, not to us, but to your name give glory, because of your grace and truth. 1 Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
2 Why should the nations ask, "Where is their God?" 2 Why do the nations say, "Where is their God?"
3 Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him. 3 Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.
4 Their idols are mere silver and gold, made by human hands. 4 But their idols are silver and gold, made by the hands of men.
5 They have mouths, but they can't speak; they have eyes, but they can't see; 5 They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see;
6 they have ears, but they can't hear; they have noses, but they can't smell; 6 they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but they cannot smell;
7 they have hands, but they can't feel; they have feet, but they can't walk; with their throats they can't make a sound. 7 they have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but they cannot walk; nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
8 The people who make them will become like them, along with everyone who trusts in them. 8 Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.
9 Isra'el, trust in ADONAI! He is their help and shield. 9 O house of Israel, trust in the LORD-- he is their help and shield.
10 House of Aharon, trust in ADONAI! He is their help and shield. 10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD-- he is their help and shield.
11 You who fear ADONAI, trust in ADONAI! He is their help and shield. 11 You who fear him, trust in the LORD-- he is their help and shield.
12 ADONAI has kept us in mind, and he will bless. He will bless the house of Isra'el; he will bless the house of Aharon; 12 The LORD remembers us and will bless us: He will bless the house of Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron,
13 he will bless those who fear ADONAI, great and small alike. 13 he will bless those who fear the LORD-- small and great alike.
14 May ADONAI increase your numbers, both yours and those of your children. 14 May the LORD make you increase, both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by ADONAI, the maker of heaven and earth. 15 May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
16 Heaven belongs to ADONAI, but the earth he has given to humankind. 16 The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man.
17 The dead can't praise ADONAI, not those who sink down into silence. 17 It is not the dead who praise the LORD, those who go down to silence;
18 But we will bless ADONAI from now on and forever. Halleluyah! 18 it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD.
