Psalm 115
King James BibleNET Bible
1Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.1Not to us, O LORD, not to us! But to your name bring honor, for the sake of your loyal love and faithfulness.
2Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?2Why should the nations say, "Where is their God?"
3But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.3Our God is in heaven! He does whatever he pleases!
4Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.4Their idols are made of silver and gold--they are man-made.
5They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:5They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see,
6They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:6ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell,
7They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.7hands, but cannot touch, feet, but cannot walk. They cannot even clear their throats.
8They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.8Those who make them will end up like them, as will everyone who trusts in them.
9O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.9O Israel, trust in the LORD! He is their deliverer and protector.
10O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.10O family of Aaron, trust in the LORD! He is their deliverer and protector.
11Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.11You loyal followers of the LORD, trust in the LORD! He is their deliverer and protector.
12The LORD hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.12The LORD takes notice of us, he will bless--he will bless the family of Israel, he will bless the family of Aaron.
13He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.13He will bless his loyal followers, both young and old.
14The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.14May he increase your numbers, yours and your children's!
15Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.15May you be blessed by the LORD, the creator of heaven and earth!
16The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.16The heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind.
17The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.17The dead do not praise the LORD, nor do any of those who descend into the silence of death.
18But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.18But we will praise the LORD now and forevermore. Praise the LORD!
