The dead praise not the LORD, neither any that go down into silence.
For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.
Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah. Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction?
What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
