1 Not to us, O LORD, but to you goes all the glory for your unfailing love and faithfulness. 1 Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
2 Why let the nations say, "Where is their God?" 2 Why do the nations say, "Where is their God?"
3 For our God is in the heavens, and he does as he wishes. 3 Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.
4 Their idols are merely things of silver and gold, shaped by human hands. 4 But their idols are silver and gold, made by the hands of men.
5 They cannot talk, though they have mouths, or see, though they have eyes! 5 They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see;
6 They cannot hear with their ears, or smell with their noses, 6 they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but they cannot smell;
7 or feel with their hands, or walk with their feet, or utter sounds with their throats! 7 they have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but they cannot walk; nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
8 And those who make them are just like them, as are all who trust in them. 8 Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.

11 All you who fear the LORD, trust the LORD! He is your helper; he is your shield. 11 You who fear him, trust in the LORD-- he is their help and shield.
12 The LORD remembers us, and he will surely bless us. He will bless the people of Israel and the family of Aaron, the priests. 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 the LORD, both great and small. 13 he will bless those who fear the LORD-- small and great alike.
14 May the LORD richly bless both you and your children. 14 May the LORD make you increase, both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the LORD, who made heaven and earth. 15 May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
16 The heavens belong to the LORD, but he has given the earth to all humanity. 16 The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to man.
17 The dead cannot sing praises to the LORD, for they have gone into the silence of the grave. 17 It is not the dead who praise the LORD, those who go down to silence;
18 But we can praise the LORD both now and forever! Praise the LORD! 18 it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD.
