The dead don't praise Yah, neither any who go down into silence;
For Sheol can't praise you. Death can't celebrate you. Those who go down into the pit can't hope for your truth.
Do you show wonders to the dead? Do the dead rise up and praise you? Selah. Is your loving kindness declared in the grave? Or your faithfulness in Destruction?
"What profit is there in my destruction, if I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise you? Shall it declare your truth?
For in death there is no memory of you. In Sheol, who shall give you thanks?
'These people draw near to me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
Were there none found who returned to give glory to God, except this stranger?"
