1 Lord, we should not receive any honor. The honor belongs to you. The honor is yours because of your love and because we can trust you. 2 Why should the nations wonder where our God is? 3 God is in heaven, and he does whatever he wants. 4 The “gods” of those nations are only statues made from gold and silver. They are only statues that some person made. 5 Those statues have mouths, but can’t talk. They have eyes, but can’t see. 6 They have ears, but can’t hear. They have noses, but can’t smell. 7 They have hands, but can’t feel. They have legs, but can’t walk. And no sounds come from their throats. 8 The people who make and trust those statues will become just like them! 9 People of Israel, trust the Lord! The Lord is their strength and shield. 10 Aaron’s family, trust the Lord! The Lord is their strength and shield. 11 Followers of the Lord, trust the Lord! The Lord is their strength and shield. 12 The Lord remembers us. The Lord will bless us. The Lord will bless Israel. The Lord will bless Aaron’s family. 13 The Lord will bless his followers, great and small. 14 I hope the Lord gives more and more to you and your children. 15 The Lord made heaven and earth. And the Lord welcomes you! 16 Heaven belongs to the Lord. But he gave the earth to people. 17 Dead people don’t praise the Lord. People down in the grave don’t praise the Lord. 18 But we bless the Lord now, and we will bless him forever more! Praise the Lord!
