Psalms Chapter 66 |
1For the leader. A song. A psalm.
2Raise a shout for God, all the earth;
sing the glory of His name,
make glorious His praise.
3Say to God,
“How awesome are Your deeds,
Your enemies cower before Your great strength;
4all the earth bows to You,
and sings hymns to You;
all sing hymns to Your name.” Selah.
5Come and see the works of God,
who is held in awe by men for His acts.
6He turned the sea into dry land;
they crossed the river on foot;
we therefore rejoice in Him.
7He rules forever in His might;
His eyes scan the nations;
let the rebellious not assert themselves. Selah.
8O peoples, bless our God,
celebrate His praises;
9who has granted us life,
and has not let our feet slip.
10You have tried us, O God,
refining us, as one refines silver.
11You have caught us in a net,
caught us in trammels.
12You have let men ride over us;
we have endured fire and water,
and You have brought us through to prosperity.
13I enter Your house with burnt offerings,
I pay my vows to You,
14[vows] that my lips pronounced,
that my mouth uttered in my distress.
15I offer up fatlings to You,
with the odor of burning rams;
I sacrifice bulls and he-goats. Selah.
16Come and hear, all God-fearing men,
as I tell what He did for me.
17I called aloud to Him,
glorification on my tongue.
18Had I an evil thought in my mind,
the Lord would not have listened.
19But God did listen;
He paid heed to my prayer.
20Blessed is God who has not turned away my prayer,
or His faithful care from me.
