115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
115:5 They have mouths, but they don’t speak. They have eyes, but they don’t see.
115:6 They have ears, but they don’t hear. They have noses, but they don’t smell.
115:7 They have hands, but they don’t feel. They have feet, but they don’t walk, neither do they speak through their throat.

115:12 Yahweh remembers us. He will bless us. He will bless the house of Israel. He will bless the house of Aaron.
115:13 He will bless those who fear Yahweh, both small and great.
115:14 May Yahweh increase you more and more, you and your children.

115:16 The heavens are the heavens of Yahweh; but the earth has he given to the children of men.
115:17 The dead don’t praise Yah, neither any who go down into silence;
115:18 But we will bless Yah, from this time forth and forevermore. Praise Yah! Psalm 116
