Because God is truly glorious,
Psalms 115:1 Not unto us, O Jehovah, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy loving-kindness and for thy truth's sake. Psalms 115:2 Wherefore should the nations say, Where then is their God? Psalms 115:3 But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he pleased.
and idols are vanity,
Psalms 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands: Psalms 115:5 They have a mouth, and they speak not; eyes have they, and they see not; Psalms 115:6 They have ears, and they hear not; a nose have they, and they smell not; Psalms 115:7 They have hands, and they handle not; feet have they, and they walk not; they give no sound through their throat. Psalms 115:8 They that make them are like unto them,every one that confideth in them.
he exhorteth to confidence in God.
Psalms 115:9 O Israel, confide thou in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield. Psalms 115:10 House of Aaron, confide in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield. Psalms 115:11 Ye that fear Jehovah, confide in Jehovah: he is their help and their shield.
God is to be praised for his blessings.
Psalms 115:12 Jehovah hath been mindful of us: he will bless, he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron; Psalms 115:13 He will bless them that fear Jehovah, both the small and the great. Psalms 115:14 Jehovah will add unto you more, unto you and unto your children. Psalms 115:15 Ye are blessed of Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth. Psalms 115:16 The heavens are the heavens of Jehovah, but the earth hath he given to the children of men. Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not Jah, neither any that go down into silence; Psalms 115:18 But *we* will bless Jah from this time forth and for evermore. Hallelujah!
