Acknowledge the majesty of the Lord’s reputation!


"Acknowledge the majesty of the Lord’s reputation! Worship the Lord in holy attire!"
Psalm 29:2 (NET)

"Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

Why do the nations say, "Where is their God?"

Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.

But their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands.

They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see.

They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell.

They have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk, nor can they utter a sound with their throats.

Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.

House of Israel, trust in the LORD­ he is their help and shield.

House of Aaron, trust in the LORD­ he is their help and shield.

You who fear him, trust in the LORD­ he is their help and shield.

The LORD remembers us and will bless us: He will bless the house of Israel,
he will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the LORD­ small and great alike.
May the LORD cause you to increase, both you and your children. May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to humankind.

It is not the dead who praise the LORD, those who go down to the place of silence; it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD."
Psalm 115 (TNIV)

Ascribe to Jehovah the glory of his name. Bow down to Jehovah in holy adornment.
Psalm 29:2 (NWV)
Psalms 115:1-18
(NWT)
1 To us belongs nothing, O Jehovah, to us belongs nothing, But to your name give glory According to your loving-kindness, according to your trueness.
2 Why should the nations say: “Where, now, is their God?”
3 But our God is in the heavens; Everything that he delighted [to do] he has done.
4 Their idols are silver and gold, The work of the hands of earthling man.
5 A mouth they have, but they cannot speak; Eyes they have, but they cannot see;
6 Ears they have, but they cannot hear. A nose they have, but they cannot smell.
7 Hands are theirs, but they cannot feel. Feet are theirs, but they cannot walk; They utter no sound with their throat.
8 Those making them will become just like them, All those who are trusting in them.
9 O Israel, trust in Jehovah; He is their help and their shield.
10 O house of Aaron, put YOUR trust in Jehovah; He is their help and their shield.
11 YOU that fear Jehovah, trust in Jehovah; He is their help and their shield.
12 Jehovah himself has remembered us; he will bless, He will bless the house of Israel, He will bless the house of Aaron.
13 He will bless those fearing Jehovah, The small ones as well as the great ones.
14 Jehovah will give increase to YOU, To YOU and to YOUR sons.
15 YOU are the ones blessed by Jehovah, The Maker of heaven and earth.
16 As regards the heavens, to Jehovah the heavens belong, But the earth he has given to the sons of men.
17 The dead themselves do not praise Jah, Nor do any going down into silence.
18 But we ourselves will bless Jah From now on and to time indefinite. Praise Jah, YOU people!
