Not a unto us, O LORD, not unto us,
But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your mercy,
Because of Your truth.
Why should the 1 Gentiles say,
b "So where is their God?" 3 c But our God is in heaven;
He does whatever He pleases.
d Their idols are silver and gold,
The work of men's hands. 5 They have mouths, but they do not speak;
Eyes they have, but they do not see; 6 They have ears, but they do not hear;
Noses they have, but they do not smell; 7 They have hands, but they do not handle;
Feet they have, but they do not walk;
Nor do they mutter through their throat. 8 e Those who make them are like them;
So is everyone who trusts in them.
f O Israel, trust in the LORD;
g He is their help and their shield. 10 O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD;
He is their help and their shield. 11 You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD;
He is their help and their shield.
The LORD 2 has been mindful of us;
He will bless us;
He will bless the house of Israel;
He will bless the house of Aaron. 13 h He will bless those who fear the LORD,
Both small and great.
May the LORD give you increase more and more,
You and your children. 15 May you be i blessed by the LORD,
j Who made heaven and earth.
The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's;
But the earth He has given to the children of men. 17 k The dead do not praise the LORD,
Nor any who go down into silence. 18 l But we will bless the LORD
From this time forth and forevermore.
Praise the LORD!
