Psalms 115:4 Their idoles [are] siluer and gold: the worke of mens hands. Psalms 115:5 They [haue] mouths, but they speake not; eies [haue] they, but they see not. Psalms 115:6 They [haue] eares, but they heare not: noses [haue] they, but they smell not. Psalms 115:7 They [haue] hands, [but] they handle not, feete [haue] they, but they walke not: neither speake they through their throat.

Psalms 115:12 The LORD hath bene mindfull of vs, he will blesse [vs], he will blesse the house of Israel: he will blesse the house of Aaron. Psalms 115:13 Hee will blesse them that feare the LORD: [both] small and great. Psalms 115:14 The LORD shall increase you more and more: you and your children. Psalms 115:15 You [are] blessed of the LORD: which made heauen and earth. Psalms 115:16 The heauen, [euen] the heauens [are] the LORDS: but the earth hath hee giuen to the children of men. Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not the Lord: neither any that go downe into silence. Psalms 115:18 But we will blesse the Lord, from this time foorth and for euermore. Praise the Lord.
