Psalm 115

1 Not to us, LORD, not to us— no, but to your own name give glory because of your loyal love and faithfulness!
2 Why do the nations say, "Where's their God now?"
3 Our God is in heaven— he can do whatever he wants!
4 Their idols are just silver and gold— things made by human hands.
5 They have mouths, but they can't speak. They have eyes, but they can't see.
6 They have ears, but they can't hear. They have noses, but they can't smell.
7 They have hands, but they can't feel. They have feet, but they can't walk. They can't even make a noise in their throats!
8 Let the people who made these idols and all who trust in them become just like them!
9 But you, Israel, trust in the LORD! God is their help and shield.
10 Trust in the LORD, house of Aaron! God is their help and shield.
11 You who honor the LORD, trust in the LORD! God is their help and shield.
12 The LORD remembers us and will bless us: God will bless the house of Israel; God will bless the house of Aaron;
13 God will bless those who honor the LORD— from the smallest to the greatest.
14 May the LORD add to your numbers— both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth!
16 The highest heaven belongs to the LORD, but he gave the earth to all people.
17 The dead don't praise the LORD, nor do those who go down to silence.
18 But us? We will bless the LORD from now until forever from now! Praise the LORD!
