Bible: Ps 115
Psalm 115 1
115:1 Not to us, O
But to your name bring honor, 2
for the sake of your loyal love and faithfulness. 3
115:2 Why should the nations say,
“Where is their God?”
115:3 Our God is in heaven!
He does whatever he pleases! 4
115:4 Their 5 idols are made of silver and gold –
they are man-made. 6
115:5 They have mouths, but cannot speak,
eyes, but cannot see,
115:6 ears, but cannot hear,
noses, but cannot smell,
115:7 hands, but cannot touch,
feet, but cannot walk.
They cannot even clear their throats. 7
115:8 Those who make them will end up 8 like them,
as will everyone who trusts in them.
115:9 O Israel, trust in the
115:10 O family 11 of Aaron, trust in the
115:11 You loyal followers of the
he will bless the family 19 of Israel,
he will bless the family of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless his loyal followers, 20
both young and old. 21
115:14 May he increase your numbers,
yours and your children’s! 22
115:15 May you be blessed by the
the creator 23 of heaven and earth!
115:16 The heavens belong to the
but the earth he has given to mankind. 25
115:17 The dead do not praise the
nor do any of those who descend into the silence of death. 26
115:18 But we will praise the
now and forevermore.
