Psalms 115
RSV-CI
115
1Not to us, O Lord, not to us,
but to thy name give glory,
for the sake of thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness!
2Why should the nations say,
“Where is their God?”
3Our God is in the heavens;
he does whatever he pleases.
4 # Ps 135.15-18. Their idols are silver and gold,
the work of men's hands.
5They have mouths, but do not speak;
eyes, but do not see.
6They have ears, but do not hear;
noses, but do not smell.
7They have hands, but do not feel;
feet, but do not walk;
and they do not make a sound in their throat.
8Those who make them are like them;
so are all who trust in them.
9O Israel, trust in the Lord!
He is their help and their shield.
10O house of Aaron, put your trust in the Lord!
He is their help and their shield.
11You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!
He is their help and their shield.
12The Lord has been mindful of us; he will bless us;
he will bless the house of Israel;
he will bless the house of Aaron;
13 # Rev 11.18; 19.5. he will bless those who fear the Lord,
both small and great.
14May the Lord give you increase,
you and your children!
15May you be blessed by the Lord,
who made heaven and earth!
16The heavens are the Lord's heavens,
but the earth he has given to the sons of men.
17The dead do not praise the Lord,
nor do any that go down into silence.
18But we will bless the Lord
from this time forth and for evermore.
Praise the Lord!
