115 Not to us, Lord, not to us, but to your name be given glory on account of your gracious love and faithfulness. 2 Why should the nations ask “Where now is their God?” 3 when our God is in the heavens and he does whatever he desires?
4 Their idols are silver and gold, crafted by human hands. 5 They have mouths, but cannot speak; they have eyes, but cannot see. 6 They have ears, but cannot hear; they have noses, but cannot smell. 7 They have hands, but cannot touch; feet, but cannot walk; they cannot even groan with their throats. 8 Those who craft them will become like them, as will all those who trust in them.
9 Israel, trust in the Lord! He is their helper and shield. 10 House of Aaron, trust in the Lord! He is their helper and shield. 11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord! He is their helper and shield.
12 The Lord remembers and blesses us. He will indeed bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron. 13 He will bless those who fear the Lord, both the important and the insignificant together.
14 May the Lord add to your numbers— to you and to your descendants. 15 May you be blessed by the Lord, who made the heavens and the earth. 16 The highest heavens[a] belong to the Lord, but he gave the earth to human beings. 17 Neither can the dead praise the Lord, nor those who go down into the silence of death.[b] 18 But we will bless the Lord from now to eternity.
