115
1Lord, you should receive the honor, not us.
The honor belongs to you
because of your faithful love and loyalty.
2Why should the nations wonder
where our God is?
3Our God is in heaven,
and he does whatever he wants.
4The “gods” of those nations are only statues
that some human made from gold and silver.
5Those statues have mouths, but cannot talk.
They have eyes, but cannot see.
6They have ears, but cannot hear.
They have noses, but cannot smell.
7They have hands, but cannot feel.
They have feet, but cannot walk.
No sounds come from their throats.
8The people who make and trust in those statues
will become like them!
9People of Israel, trust in the Lord!
He is your strength and shield.
10Aaron’s family, trust in the Lord!
He is your strength and shield.
11Followers of the Lord, trust in the Lord!
He is your strength and shield.
12The Lord remembers us.
He will bless us.
He will bless Israel.
He will bless Aaron’s family.
13The Lord will bless his followers,
great and small.
14May the Lord give more and more to you
and to your children.
15May you receive blessings from the Lord,#115:15 May … the Lord Or “The Lord welcomes you with a blessing.”
who made heaven and earth.
16Heaven belongs to the Lord,
but he gave the earth to people.
17The dead don’t praise him.
Those in the grave don’t praise the Lord.
18But we will praise the Lord
now and forever!
Praise the Lord!
