Psalm 113

God the Helper of the Needy


1 Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord;
   praise the name of the Lord.


2 Blessed be the name of the Lord
   from this time on and for evermore.
3 From the rising of the sun to its setting
   the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4 The Lord is high above all nations,
   and his glory above the heavens.


5 Who is like the Lord our God,
   who is seated on high,
6 who looks far down
   on the heavens and the earth?
7 He raises the poor from the dust,
   and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
8 to make them sit with princes,
   with the princes of his people.
9 He gives the barren woman a home,
   making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!

Psalm 115

The Impotence of Idols and the Greatness of God


1 Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory,
   for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness.
2 Why should the nations say,
   ‘Where is their God?’


3 Our God is in the heavens;
   he does whatever he pleases.
4 Their idols are silver and gold,
   the work of human hands.
5 They have mouths, but do not speak;
   eyes, but do not see.
6 They have ears, but do not hear;
   noses, but do not smell.
7 They have hands, but do not feel;
   feet, but do not walk;
   they make no sound in their throats.
8 Those who make them are like them;
   so are all who trust in them.


9 O Israel, trust in the Lord!
   He is their help and their shield.
10 O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord!
   He is their help and their shield.
11 You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!
   He is their help and their shield.


12 The Lord has been mindful of us; he will bless us;
   he will bless the house of Israel;
   he will bless the house of Aaron;
13 he will bless those who fear the Lord,
   both small and great.


14 May the Lord give you increase,
   both you and your children.
15 May you be blessed by the Lord,
   who made heaven and earth.


16 The heavens are the Lord’s heavens,
   but the earth he has given to human beings.
17 The dead do not praise the Lord,
   nor do any that go down into silence.
18 But we will bless the Lord
   from this time on and for evermore.
Praise the Lord!
