1 Don’t give glory to us, O Lord. Don’t give glory to us. Instead, give glory to your name because of your mercy and faithfulness. 2 Why should other nations say, “Where is their God?” 3 Our God is in heaven. He does whatever he wants. 4 Their idols are made of silver and gold. They were made by human hands.[a] 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. They cannot even make a sound with their throats. 8 Those who make idols end up like them. So does everyone who trusts them.
9 Israel, trust the Lord. He is your helper and your shield. 10 Descendants of Aaron, trust the Lord. He is your helper and your shield. 11 If you fear the Lord, trust the Lord. He is your helper and your shield.
12 The Lord, who is always thinking about us, will bless us. He will bless the descendants of Israel. He will bless the descendants of Aaron. 13 He will bless those who fear the Lord, from the least important to the most important. 14 May the Lord continue to bless you and your children. 15 You will be blessed by the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. 16 The highest heaven belongs to the Lord, but he has given the earth to the descendants of Adam. 17 Those who are dead do not praise the Lord, nor do those who go into the silence of the grave. 18 But we will thank the Lord now and forever.
