Psalms 115:14 Jehovah addeth to you, to you, and to your sons. Psalms 115:15 Blessed [are] ye of Jehovah, maker of heaven and earth, Psalms 115:16 The heavensthe heavens [are] Jehovah's, And the earth He hath given to sons of men, Psalms 115:17 The dead praise not Jah, Nor any going down to silence. Psalms 115:18 And we, we bless Jah, From henceforth, and unto the age. Praise ye Jah!
