The One True God

115 ·It does not belong [L Not to us, not] to us, Lord.
    The glory belongs to ·you [L your name]
because of your ·love [loyalty] and ·loyalty [faithfulness].

Why do the nations ask,
    “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven.
    He does what he pleases.
Their idols are made of silver and gold,
    the work of human hands.
They have mouths, but they cannot speak.
    They have eyes, but they cannot see.
They have ears, but they cannot hear.
    They have noses, but they cannot smell.
They have hands, but they cannot feel.
    They have feet, but they cannot walk.
    No sounds come from their throats.
People who make ·idols [L them] ·will be [or are] like them,
    and so will those who ·trust [have confidence in] them [135:15–18; Is. 44:9–20; 46:6–7; Jer. 10:1–9; Hab. 2:18–19].

·Family of [L O] Israel, ·trust [have confidence in] the Lord;
    he is your helper and your ·protection [L shield].
10 ·Family [L House] of Aaron [C the priests], ·trust [have confidence in] the Lord;
    he is your helper and your ·protection [L shield].
11 You who ·respect [fear] the Lord [Prov. 1:7] should ·trust [have confidence in] him;
    he is your helper and your ·protection [L shield].

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us.
    He will bless the ·family [L house] of Israel;
    he will bless the ·family [L house] of Aaron [C the priests].
13 The Lord will bless those who ·respect [fear] him [Prov. 1:7],
    from the ·smallest [or least] to the greatest.

14 May the Lord ·give you success [make you increase],
    and may he give you and your children ·success [increase].
15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth [Gen. 1].

16 Heaven belongs to the Lord,
    but he gave the earth to people.
17 Dead people do not praise the Lord;
    those ·in the grave are silent [L who go down in silence].
18 But we will praise the Lord
    now and forever.

Praise the Lord!
