1 Not to us, O Jehovah! not to us, But to thy name give glory, On account of thy mercy, on account of thy truth.
2 Why should the heathen say, |Where is now their God?|
3 But our God is in the heaven: Whatever pleased him he hath done.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, The work of the hands of men.
5 A mouth have they, and they do not speak: Eyes have they, and they do not see:
6 Ears have they, and they do not hear: Noses have they, and they do not smell:
7 Hands have they, and they do not feel: Feet have they, and they do not walk: They do not speak through their throat.
8 Like to them shall be those who make them, And every one who trusteth in them.
9 O Israel! trust thou in Jehovah: Their help and their shield is He:
10 O house of Aaron! trust in Jehovah: Their help and their shield is he:
11 Ye who fear Jehovah! trust in Jehovah: Their help and their shield is He.
12 Jehovah hath remembered 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 Jehovah, The small together with the great.
14 Jehovah will add to you, To you and to your children.
15 Blessed are ye of Jehovah, Who made heaven and earth.
16 The heavens, the heavens are Jehovah's: But the earth he hath given to the sons of men.
17 The dead shall not praise thee, O God! Nor any who go down into silence.
18 But as for us we will bless God, From this time, and even for evermore. Hallelujah.
