Psalms 115

 

 
1 Not to us, O Lord, not to us; but to thy name give glory.

2 For thy mercy, and for thy truth’s sake: lest the gentiles should say: Where is their God?

3 But our God is in heaven: he hath done all things whatsoever he would.

4 The idols of the gentiles are silver and gold, the works of the hands of men.

5 They have mouths and speak not: they have eyes and see not.

6 They have ears and hear not: they have noses and smell not.

7 They have hands and feel not: they have feet and walk not: neither shall they cry out through their throat.

8 Let them that make them become like unto them: and all such as trust in them.

9 The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

10 The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

11 They that fear the Lord hath hoped in the Lord: he is their helper and their protector.

12 The Lord hath been mindful of us, and hath blessed us. He hath blessed the house of Israel: he hath blessed the house of Aaron.

13 He hath blessed all that fear the Lord, both little and great.

14 May the Lord add blessings upon you: upon you, and upon your children.

15 Blessed be you of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

16 The heaven of heaven is the Lord’s: but the earth he has given to the children of men.

17 The dead shall not praise thee, O Lord: nor any of them that go down to hell.

18 But we that live bless the Lord: from this time now and for ever.
