Psalms 115 (asv)

(Online: ASV WEB)

115:1Not unto us, O Jehovah, not unto us,

But unto thy name give glory,

For thy lovingkindness, and for thy truth's sake.

115:2Wherefore should the nations say,

Where is now their God?

115:3But our God is in the heavens:

He hath done whatsoever he pleased.

115:4Their idols are silver and gold,

The work of men's hands.

115:5They have mouths, but they speak not;

Eyes have they, but they see not;

115:6They have ears, but they hear not;

Noses have they, but they smell not;

115:7They have hands, but they handle not;

Feet have they, but they walk not;

Neither speak they through their throat.

115:8They that make them shall be like unto them;

Yea, every one that trusteth in them.

115:9O Israel, trust thou in Jehovah:

He is their help and their shield.

115:10O house of Aaron, trust ye in Jehovah:

He is their help and their shield.

115:11Ye that fear Jehovah, trust in Jehovah:

He is their help and their shield.

115:12Jehovah hath been mindful of us; he will bless us:

He will bless the house of Israel;

He will bless the house of Aaron.

115:13He will bless them that fear Jehovah,

Both small and great.

115:14Jehovah increase you more and more,

You and your children.

115:15Blessed are ye of Jehovah,

Who made heaven and earth.

115:16The heavens are the heavens of Jehovah;

But the earth hath he given to the children of men.

115:17The dead praise not Jehovah,

Neither any that go down into silence;

115:18But we will bless Jehovah

From this time forth and for evermore.

Praise ye Jehovah.
