Psalm 115

Don’t give glory to us, O Yahweh.
    Don’t give glory to us.
    Instead, give glory to your name
        because of your mercy and faithfulness.
Why should other nations say, “Where is their Elohim?”
Our Elohim is in heaven.
    He does whatever he wants.
Their idols are made of silver and gold.
    They were made by human hands.[a]
        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.
        They cannot even make a sound with their throats.
            Those who make idols end up like them.
                So does everyone who trusts them.

Israel, trust Yahweh.
    He is your helper and your Magen.
10 Descendants of Aaron, trust Yahweh.
    He is your helper and your Magen.
11 If you fear Yahweh, trust Yahweh.
    He is your helper and your Magen.

12 Yahweh, 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 Yahweh,
    from the least important to the most important.
14 May Yahweh continue to bless you and your children.
15 You will be blessed by Yahweh, the maker of heaven and earth.
16 The highest heaven belongs to Yahweh,
    but he has given the earth to the descendants of Adam.
17 Those who are dead do not praise Yah,
    nor do those who go into the silence of the grave.
18 But we will thank Yah now and forever.
