To Your Name Give Glory
1 # [Isa. 48:11; Ezek. 36:22; Dan. 9:18, 19] Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
# See Ps. 36:5 for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!
2Why should the nations say,
# [Ex. 32:12; Num. 14:13, 14]; See Ps. 42:3 “Where is their God?”
3 # See Ps. 11:4 Our God is in the heavens;
Ps. 135:6; Dan. 4:35 he does all that he pleases.
4 # For ver. 4-8, see Ps. 135:15-18 Their idols are silver and gold,
Deut. 4:28; 2 Kgs. 19:18; Isa. 37:19; Acts 19:26; See Isa. 44:10-20; Jer. 10:3-5 the work of human hands.
5They have mouths, #[Isa. 46:7; Hab. 2:18]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.
8 # [Isa. 44:9] Those who make them become like them;
so do all who trust in them.
9O #[Ps. 118:2-4; 135:19, 20] Israel,#115:9 Masoretic Text; many Hebrew manuscripts, Septuagint, Syriac O house of Israel #Ps. 37:3; 62:8 trust in the Lord!
He is their #Ps. 33:20help and their shield.
10O #[See ver. 9 above] house of Aaron, trust in the Lord!
He is their help and #See Ps. 3:3their shield.
11You #Ps. 22:23; 103:11, 13, 17who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!
He is their help and their shield.
12The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us;
he will bless #[Ps. 118:2-4; 135:19, 20]the house of Israel;
he will bless #[Ps. 118:2-4; 135:19, 20]the house of Aaron;
13he will #See Ps. 112:1 bless those who fear the Lord,
Jer. 16:6; 31:34 both the small and the great.
14May the Lord #Deut. 1:11give you increase,
you and your children!
15May #See Ruth 2:20 you be blessed by the Lord,
Ps. 121:2; 124:8; 134:3; 146:6; Acts 14:15; Rev. 14:7; [Gen. 1:1; 14:19; Jer. 10:11] who made heaven and earth!
16The heavens are the Lord’s heavens,
but the earth he has given to the children of man.
17 # See Ps. 6:5 The dead do not praise the Lord,
nor do any who go down into #See Ps. 31:17silence.
18But #Ps. 113:2 we will bless the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore.
# See Ps. 104:35 Praise the Lord!
