New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
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.
