Psalms 66

1

TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A SONG. A PSALM. Shout for joy to God, all the earth;

2

sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise!

3

Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.

4

All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name." Selah

5

Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.

6

He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him,

7

who rules by his might forever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations- let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah

8

Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of his praise be heard,

9

who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip.

10

For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried.

11

You brought us into the net; you laid a crushing burden on our backs;

12

you let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.

13

I will come into your house with burnt offerings; I will perform my vows to you,

14

that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.

15

I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah

16

Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul.

17

I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on my tongue.

18

If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.

19

But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer.

20

Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!
