The Message

Psalm 115

11-2 Not for our sake, God, no, not for our sake,
    but for your name’s sake, show your glory.
Do it on account of your merciful love,
    do it on account of your faithful ways.
Do it so none of the nations can say,
    “Where now, oh where is their God?”

3-8 Our God is in heaven
    doing whatever he wants to do.
Their gods are metal and wood,
    handmade in a basement shop:
Carved mouths that can’t talk,
    painted eyes that can’t see,
Tin ears that can’t hear,
    molded noses that can’t smell,
Hands that can’t grasp, feet that can’t walk or run,
    throats that never utter a sound.
Those who make them have become just like them,
    have become just like the gods they trust.

9-11 But you, Israel: put your trust in God!
    —trust your Helper! trust your Ruler!
Clan of Aaron, trust in God!
    —trust your Helper! trust your Ruler!
You who fear God, trust in God!
    —trust your Helper! trust your Ruler!

12-16 O God, remember us and bless us,
    bless the families of Israel and Aaron.
And let God bless all who fear God
    bless the small, bless the great.
Oh, let God enlarge your families—
    giving growth to you, growth to your children.
May you be blessed by God,
    by God, who made heaven and earth.
The heaven of heavens is for God,
    but he put us in charge of the earth.

17-18 Dead people can’t praise God
    not a word to be heard from those buried in the ground.
But we bless God, oh yes—
    we bless him now, we bless him always!
Hallelujah!

诗篇 115

上帝是独一真神

1耶和华啊,
不要将荣耀归于我们,
不要归于我们。
愿荣耀归于你的名,
因为你慈爱、信实!
为何让列国说
“他们的上帝在哪里”?
我们的上帝高居在天,
按自己的旨意行事。
他们的神像不过是人用金银造的。
它们有口不能言,有眼不能看,
有耳不能听,有鼻不能闻,
有手不能摸,有脚不能走,
有喉咙也不能发声。
那些制造它们、信靠它们的人也会和它们一样。

以色列人啊,要信靠耶和华!
祂是你们的帮助,
是你们的盾牌。
10 亚伦家啊,要信靠耶和华!
祂是你们的帮助,
是你们的盾牌。
11 敬畏耶和华的人啊,要信靠祂!
祂是你们的帮助,
是你们的盾牌。[a]
12 耶和华眷顾我们,赐福给我们。
祂要赐福给以色列人,
赐福给亚伦家。
13 耶和华要赐福给一切敬畏祂的人,
不分尊贵卑贱。
14 愿耶和华使你们和你们的后代人丁兴旺!
15 愿创造天地的耶和华赐福给你们!
16 高天属于耶和华,
但祂把大地赐给了世人。
17 死人不能歌颂耶和华,
下到坟墓的人不能赞美祂。
18 但我们要赞美耶和华,
从现在直到永远。
你们要赞美耶和华!
