Bless the Maker of Heaven and Earth
1Not to us, Adonai, not to us, but to Your Name be the glory— because of Your love and Your faithfulness.
2Why should the nations say: “Where is their God now?”
3Our God is in the heavens— He does whatever pleases Him!
4Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands.
5They have mouths, but cannot speak; eyes, but cannot see.
6They have ears, but cannot hear; noses, but cannot smell.
7They have hands, but cannot feel; feet, but cannot walk, nor utter a sound with their throat.
8Those making them will become like them —everyone trusting in them.
9O Israel, trust in Adonai— He is their help and their shield!
10O house of Aaron, trust in Adonai— He is their help and their shield!
11O you who fear Adonai, trust in Adonai— He is their help and their shield!
12Adonai has been mindful of us, He will bless: He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron;
13He will bless those who fear Adonai, the small together with the great.
14May Adonai increase you more and more —you and your children.
15May you be blessed by Adonai, Maker of heaven and earth.
16The heavens are the heavens of Adonai, but the earth He gave to the children of men.
17The dead do not praise Adonai, nor do any who go down into silence.
18But we—we will bless Adonai both now and forever. Halleluyah!
