¶ Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give the praise, for thy loving mercy and faithfulness. Wherefore shall the Heathen say: Where is now their God? As for our God, he is in heaven, he doth whatsoever it pleaseth him. Their images are but silver and gold, even the work of men's hands. They have mouths, and speak not: eyes have they, but they see not. They have ears, and hear not: noses have they, but they smell not. They have hands and handle not, feet have they, but they can not go, neither can they speak thorow their throat. They that make them, are like unto them, and so are all such as put their trust in them.
¶ But let Israel trust in the LORD, for he is their succour and defense. Let the house of Aaron put their trust in the LORD, for he is their succour and defense. They that fear the LORD, let them put their trust in the LORD, for he is their succour and defense. The LORD is mindful of us, and blesseth us: he blesseth the house of Israel, he blesseth the house of Aaron. Yea he blesseth all them that fear the LORD, both small and great. The LORD increase you more and more: you and your children. For ye are the blessed of the LORD, which made heaven and earth. All the whole heavens are the LORD's, but the earth hath he given unto the children of men. The dead praise not thee (O LORD) neither all they that go down into silence. But we will praise thee LORD, from this time forth for evermore. Praise the everlasting.
