Chapter 115

1Not for us, O Lord, not for us, but for Your name give honor, for Your kindness and for Your truthfulness.   אלֹ֚א לָ֥נוּ יְהֹוָה֘ לֹ֪א לָ֥֫נוּ כִּ֣י לְ֖שִׁמְךָ תֵּ֣ן כָּב֑וֹד עַל־חַ֜סְדְּךָ֗ עַל־אֲמִתֶּֽךָ:
Not for us: Not for us or for the fitness of our deeds shall You do [this] for us.  
but for Your name give honor: So that they should not say, “Where is their God now?”  
2Why should the nations say, "Where is your God now?"   בלָמָּה יֹֽאמְר֣וּ הַגּוֹיִ֑ם אַיֵּה־נָ֜֗א אֱלֹֽהֵיהֶֽם:
3But our God is in heaven; whatever He wishes, He does.   גוֵֽאלֹהֵ֥ינוּ בַשָּׁמָ֑יִם כֹּ֖ל אֲשֶׁר־חָפֵ֣ץ עָשָֽׂה:
4Their idols are silver and gold, the handiwork of man.   דעֲצַבֵּיהֶם כֶּ֣סֶף וְזָהָ֑ב מַֽ֜עֲשֵׂ֗ה יְדֵ֣י אָדָֽם:
5They have a mouth but they do not speak; they have eyes but they do not see.   הפֶּ֣ה לָ֖הֶם וְלֹ֣א יְדַבֵּ֑רוּ עֵינַ֥יִם לָ֜הֶ֗ם וְלֹ֣א יִרְאֽוּ:
6They have ears but they do not hear; they have a nose but they do not smell.   ואָזְנַ֣יִם לָ֖הֶם וְלֹ֣א יִשְׁמָ֑עוּ אַ֥ף לָ֜הֶ֗ם וְלֹ֣א יְרִיחֽוּן:
7Their hands-but they do not feel; their feet-but they do not walk; they do not murmur with their throat.   זיְדֵיהֶ֚ם | וְלֹ֬א יְמִישׁ֗וּן רַ֖גְלֵיהֶם וְלֹ֣א יְהַלֵּ֑כוּ לֹֽא־יֶ֜הְגּ֗וּ בִּגְרוֹנָֽם:
but they do not feel: Heb. ימישון, an expression of (Gen. 27:12): “Perhaps my father will feel me (ימשני).”  
8Like them shall be those who make them, all who trust in them.   חכְּמוֹהֶם יִֽהְי֣וּ עֹשֵׂיהֶ֑ם כֹּ֖ל אֲשֶׁר־בֹּטֵ֣חַ בָּהֶֽם:
9Israel, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.   טיִשְׂרָאֵל בְּטַ֣ח בַּֽיהֹוָ֑ה עֶזְרָ֖ם וּמָֽגִנָּ֣ם הֽוּא:
10House of Aaron, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.   יבֵּ֣ית אַֽ֖הֲרֹן בִּטְח֣וּ בַֽיהֹוָ֑ה עֶזְרָ֖ם וּמָֽגִנָּ֣ם הֽוּא:
11Those who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield.   יאיִרְאֵ֣י יְ֖הֹוָה בִּטְח֣וּ בַֽיהֹוָ֑ה עֶזְרָ֖ם וּמָֽגִנָּ֣ם הֽוּא:
Those who fear the Lord: These are the proselytes.  
12The Lord, Who remembered us, will bless; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.   יביְהֹוָה֘ זְכָרָ֪נוּ יְבָ֫רֵ֥ךְ יְ֖בָרֵךְ אֶת־בֵּ֣ית יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל יְ֜בָרֵ֗ךְ אֶת־בֵּ֥ית אַֽהֲרֹֽן:
13He will bless those who fear the Lord, the small together with the great.   יגיְבָרֵךְ יִרְאֵ֣י יְהֹוָ֑ה הַ֜קְּטַנִּ֗ים עִם־הַגְּדֹלִֽים:
14May the Lord add upon you, upon you and upon your children.   ידיֹסֵ֣ף יְהֹוָ֣ה עֲלֵיכֶ֑ם עֲ֜לֵיכֶ֗ם וְעַל־בְּנֵיכֶֽם:
15Blessed are you to the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.   טובְּרוּכִ֣ים אַ֖תֶּם לַֽיהֹוָ֑ה עֹ֜שֵׂ֗ה שָׁמַ֥יִם וָאָֽרֶץ:
16The heavens are heavens of the Lord, but the earth He gave to the children of men.   טזהַשָּׁמַיִם שָׁ֖מַיִם לַֽיהֹוָ֑ה וְ֜הָאָ֗רֶץ נָתַ֥ן לִבְנֵי־אָדָֽם:
17Neither will the dead praise God, nor all those who descend to the grave.   יזלֹֽא־הַמֵּתִ֥ים יְהַֽלְלוּ־יָ֑הּ וְ֜לֹ֗א כָּל־יֹֽרְדֵ֥י דוּמָֽה:
18But we shall bless God from now until everlasting, Hallelujah!   יחוַֽאֲנַ֚חְנוּ | נְבָ֘רֵ֚ךְ יָ֗הּ מֵֽעַתָּ֥ה וְעַד־עוֹלָ֗ם הַֽלְלוּיָֽהּ:
