The One True God 115 1It does not belong to us, Lord. The glory belongs to you because of your love and loyalty. 2Why do the nations ask, “Where is their God?” 3Our God is in heaven. He does what he pleases. 4Their idols are made of silver and gold, the work of human hands. 5They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see. 6They have ears, but they cannot hear. They have noses, but they cannot smell. 7They have hands, but they cannot feel. They have feet, but they cannot walk. No sounds come from their throats. 8People who make idols will be like them, and so will those who trust them. 9Family of Israel, trust the Lord; he is your helper and your protection. 10Family of Aaron, trust the Lord; he is your helper and your protection. 11You who respect the Lord should trust him; he is your helper and your protection. 12The Lord remembers us and will bless us. He will bless the family of Israel; he will bless the family of Aaron. 13The Lord will bless those who respect him, from the smallest to the greatest. 14May the Lord give you success, and may he give you and your children success. 15May you be blessed by the Lord, who made heaven and earth. 16Heaven belongs to the Lord, but he gave the earth to people. 17Dead people do not praise the Lord; those in the grave are silent. 18But we will praise the Lord now and forever. Praise the Lord!
