Psalm 115

Not to Us

To God Alone Be Glory

Not to us, O Lord, not to us,
but to your name give glory,
because of your mercy,
because of your truth.

No Glory in Idols

Why should the nations say,
“So where is their God now?”
In fact, our God is in the heavens.
He does everything that pleases him.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands.
They have a mouth, but they do not speak.
They have eyes, but they do not see.
They have ears, but they do not hear.
They have a nose, but they do not smell.
Their hands—they do not even feel.
Their feet—they do not even walk around.
They do not even make a sound with their throats.
Those who make them will be like them,
and so will all who trust in them.

Trust in the Lord

Israel, trust in the Lord
he is their help and their shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in the Lord
he is their help and their shield.
11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord
he is their help and their shield.
12 The Lord remembers us. He will bless.
He will bless the house of Israel.
He will bless the house of Aaron.
13 He will bless those who fear the Lord
the small with the great.
14 May the Lord add blessings to you,
to you and to your children.
15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

Serve the Lord

16 The heavens are heavens for the Lord,
but the earth he gave to the children of Adam.
17 It is not the dead who praise the Lord, [1]
nor any of those who go down to silence,
18 but we are the ones who bless the Lord, [2]
    from now to eternity.
Praise the Lord. [3]
