Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Psalms Chapter 115
1: Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
2: Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?
3: But our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
4: Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
5: They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8: They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
9: O Israel, trust thou 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: Ye that fear the LORD, trust in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
12: The LORD hath 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 them that fear the LORD, both small and great.
14: The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children.
15: Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.
16: The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD's: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.
17: The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
18: But we will bless the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. Praise the LORD.
Psalms Chapter 116
1: I love the LORD, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications.
2: Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
3: The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
4: Then called I upon the name of the LORD; O LORD, I beseech thee, deliver my soul.
5: Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
6: The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.
7: Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee.
8: For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.
9: I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
10: I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:
11: I said in my haste, All men are liars.
12: What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward me?
13: I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the LORD.
14: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
15: Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
16: O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
17: I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
18: I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
19: In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.
