Psalm 115 World English Bible (WEB)

115 Not to us, Yahweh, not to us,
    but to your name give glory,
    for your loving kindness, and for your truth’s sake.
Why should the nations say,
    “Where is their God, now?”
But our God is in the heavens.
    He does whatever he pleases.
Their idols are silver and gold,
    the work of men’s hands.
They have mouths, but they don’t speak.
    They have eyes, but they don’t see.
They have ears, but they don’t hear.
    They have noses, but they don’t smell.
They have hands, but they don’t feel.
    They have feet, but they don’t walk,
    neither do they speak through their throat.
Those who make them will be like them;
    yes, everyone who trusts in them.
Israel, trust in Yahweh!
    He is their help and their shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in Yahweh!
    He is their help and their shield.
11 You who fear Yahweh, trust in Yahweh!
    He is their help and their shield.
12 Yahweh remembers us. He will bless us.
    He will bless the house of Israel.
    He will bless the house of Aaron.
13 He will bless those who fear Yahweh,
    both small and great.
14 May Yahweh increase you more and more,
    you and your children.
15 Blessed are you by Yahweh,
    who made heaven and earth.
16 The heavens are the heavens of Yahweh;
    but the earth has he given to the children of men.
17 The dead don’t praise Yah,
    neither any who go down into silence;
18 But we will bless Yah,
    from this time forward and forever more.
Praise Yah!

Psalm 115 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 115

Not to us, Lord, not to us
    but to your name be the glory,
    because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say,
    “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven;
    he does whatever pleases him.
But their idols are silver and gold,
    made by human hands.
They have mouths, but cannot speak,
    eyes, but cannot see.
They have ears, but cannot hear,
    noses, but cannot smell.
They have hands, but cannot feel,
    feet, but cannot walk,
    nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
Those who make them will be like them,
    and so will all who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.
10 House of Aaron, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.
11 You who fear him, trust in the Lord
    he is their help and shield.

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us:
    He will bless his people Israel,
    he will bless the house of Aaron,
13 he will bless those who fear the Lord
    small and great alike.

14 May the Lord cause you to flourish,
    both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord,
    but the earth he has given to mankind.
17 It is not the dead who praise the Lord,
    those who go down to the place of silence;
18 it is we who extol the Lord,
    both now and forevermore.

Praise the Lord.[a]
