Amplified Bible

Psalm 115

Pagan Idols Contrasted with the Lord.

1Not to us, O Lord, not to us,
But to Your name give glory
Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth and faithfulness.

Why should the nations say,
“Where, now, is their God?”

But our God is in heaven;
He does whatever He pleases.

The idols [of the nations] are silver and gold,
The work of man’s hands.

They have mouths, but they cannot speak;
They have eyes, but they cannot see;

They have ears, but they cannot hear;
They have noses, but they cannot smell;

They have hands, but they cannot feel;
They have feet, but they cannot walk;
Nor can they make a sound with their throats.

Those who make them will become like them,
Everyone who trusts in them.


O Israel, trust and take refuge in the Lord! [Be confident in Him, cling to Him, rely on His word!]
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 [reverently] fear the Lord, trust in Lord;
He is their help and their shield.
12 
The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless,
He will bless the house of Israel;
He will bless the house of Aaron.
13 
He will bless those who fear and worship the Lord [with awe-inspired reverence and submissive wonder],
Both the small and the great.
14 
May the Lord give you [great] increase,
You and your children.
15 
May you be blessed of the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.

16 
The heavens are the heavens of the Lord,
But the earth He has given to the children of men.
17 
The dead do not praise the Lord,
Nor do any who go down into silence;
18 
But as for us, we will bless and affectionately and gratefully praise the Lord
From this time forth and forever.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!)

詩篇 115

上帝是獨一真神

1耶和華啊,
不要將榮耀歸於我們,
不要歸於我們。
願榮耀歸於你的名,
因為你慈愛、信實!
為何讓列國說
「他們的上帝在哪裡」?
我們的上帝高居在天,
按自己的旨意行事。
他們的神像不過是人用金銀造的。
它們有口不能言,有眼不能看,
有耳不能聽,有鼻不能聞,
有手不能摸,有腳不能走,
有喉嚨也不能發聲。
那些製造它們、信靠它們的人也會和它們一樣。

以色列人啊,要信靠耶和華!
祂是你們的幫助,
是你們的盾牌。
10 亞倫家啊,要信靠耶和華!
祂是你們的幫助,
是你們的盾牌。
11 敬畏耶和華的人啊,要信靠祂!
祂是你們的幫助,
是你們的盾牌。[a]
12 耶和華眷顧我們,賜福給我們。
祂要賜福給以色列人,
賜福給亞倫家。
13 耶和華要賜福給一切敬畏祂的人,
不分尊貴卑賤。
14 願耶和華使你們和你們的後代人丁興旺!
15 願創造天地的耶和華賜福給你們!
16 高天屬於耶和華,
但祂把大地賜給了世人。
17 死人不能歌頌耶和華,
下到墳墓的人不能讚美祂。
18 但我們要讚美耶和華,
從現在直到永遠。
你們要讚美耶和華!
