115:1 Not unto us, O the Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy, and for Thy truth's sake.
115:2 Wherefore should the nations say: 'Where is now their God?'
115:3 But our God is in the heavens; whatsoever pleased Him He hath done.
115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;
115:6 They have ears, but they hear not; noses have they, but they smell not;
115:7 They have hands, but they handle not; feet have they, but they walk not; neither speak they with their throat.
115:8 They that make them shall be like unto them; yea, every one that trusteth in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the Lord! He is their help and their shield!
115:10 O house of Aaron, trust ye in the Lord! He is their help and their shield!
115:11 Ye that fear the Lord, trust in the Lord! He is their help and their shield.
115:12 the Lord hath been mindful of us, He will bless--He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless them that fear the Lord, both small and great.
115:14 the Lord increase you more and more, you and your children.
115:15 Blessed be ye of the Lord who made heaven and earth.
115:16 The heavens are the heavens of the Lord; but the earth hath He given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence;
115:18 But we will bless the Lord from this time forth and for ever. Hallelujah.
