Psalm 115

Psalm 115  •  2 min. read  •  grade level: 4
Not unto us, O Jehovah, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their Elohim?
But our Elohim is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
O Israel, trust thou in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.
O house of Aaron, trust in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.
Ye that fear Jehovah, trust in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.
Jehovah hath been mindful of us: he will bless us; he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron.
He will bless them that fear Jehovah, both small and great.
Jehovah shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
Ye are blessed of Jehovah which made heaven and earth.
The heaven, even the heavens, are Jehovah's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
The dead praise not Jah, neither any that go down into silence.
But we will bless Jah from this time forth and for evermore. Hallelu-Jah.
115:1 Not to us, O Jehovah, but to thee glory,—mercy and truth are thine; 2 why should the heathen say, Where now their Elohim? 3 He is in heaven and has done his pleasure; 4-7 the idols! 8 and their makers! 9-11 Israel, house of Aaron, fearers of Jehovah, trust in him, 12, 13 he thinks of us and will bless you, 14, 15 you are the blessed of him the Creator; 16, 17 larger still; 18 we will ever bless Jah.
