New International Reader's Version

Psalm 115

Psalm 115

Lord, may glory be given to you, not to us.
    You are loving and faithful.

Why do the nations ask,
    “Where is their God?”
Our God is in heaven.
    He does anything he wants to do.
But the statues of their gods are made out of silver and gold.
    They are made by human hands.
They have mouths but can’t speak.
    They have eyes but can’t see.
They have ears but can’t hear.
    They have noses but can’t smell.
They have hands but can’t feel.
    They have feet but can’t walk.
    They have throats but can’t say anything.
Those who make statues of gods will be like them.
    So will all those who trust in them.

All you Israelites, trust in the Lord.
    He helps you like a shield that keeps you safe.
10 Priests of Aaron, trust in the Lord.
    He helps you like a shield that keeps you safe.
11 You who have respect for the Lord, trust in him.
    He helps you like a shield that keeps you safe.

12 The Lord remembers us and will bless us.
    He will bless Israel, his people.
    He will bless the priests of Aaron.
13 The Lord will bless those who have respect for him.
    He will bless important and unimportant people alike.

14 May the Lord give you many children.
    May he give them to you and to your children after you.
15 May the Lord bless you.
    He is the Maker of heaven and earth.

16 The highest heavens belong to the Lord.
    But he has given the earth to human beings.
17 Dead people don’t praise the Lord.
    Those who lie quietly in the grave don’t praise him.
18 But we who are alive praise the Lord,
    both now and forever.

Praise the Lord.

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!
