The LORD Deserves To Be Praised 115 1We don't deserve praise! The LORD alone deserves all of the praise, because of his love and faithfulness. 2 Why should the nations ask, “Where is your God?” 3Our God is in the heavens, doing as he chooses. 4 The idols of the nations are made of silver and gold. 5They have a mouth and eyes, but they can't speak or see. 6Their ears can't hear, and their noses can't smell. 7Their hands have no feeling, their legs don't move, and they can't make a sound. 8Everyone who made the idols and all who trust them are just as helpless as those useless gods. 9People of Israel, you must trust the LORD to help and protect you. 10Family of Aaron the priest, you must trust the LORD to help and protect you. 11All of you worship the LORD, so you must trust him to help and protect you. 12The LORD will not forget to give us his blessing; he will bless all of Israel and the family of Aaron. 13 All who worship the LORD, no matter who they are, will receive his blessing. 14I pray that the LORD will let your family and your descendants always grow strong. 15May the LORD who created the heavens and the earth give you his blessing. 16The LORD has kept the heavens for himself, but he has given the earth to us humans. 17The dead are silent and cannot praise the LORD, 18but we will praise him now and forevermore. Shout praises to the LORD!
