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].
2 Why do the nations ask, “Where is their God?” 3 Our God is in heaven. He does what he pleases. 4 Their idols are made of silver and gold, the work of human hands. 5 They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see. 6 They have ears, but they cannot hear. They have noses, but they cannot smell. 7 They have hands, but they cannot feel. They have feet, but they cannot walk. No sounds come from their throats. 8 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].
9 ·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.
