Psalm 66:1-20

For the Chief Musician. A song, a Psalm. 66  Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth: 2  Sing forth the glory of his name: Make his praise glorious. 3  Say unto God, How terrible are thy works! Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. 4  All the earth shall worship thee, And shall sing unto thee; They shall sing to thy name. Selah 5  Come, and see the works of God; He is terrible in his doing toward the children of men. 6  He turned the sea into dry land; They went through the river on foot: There did we rejoice in him. 7  He ruleth by his might for ever; His eyes observe the nations: Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah 8  Oh bless our God, ye peoples, And make the voice of his praise to be heard; 9  Who holdeth our soul in life, And suffereth not our feet to be moved. 10  For thou, O God, hast proved us: Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. 11  Thou broughtest us into the net; Thou layedst a sore burden upon our loins. 12  Thou didst cause men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place. 13  I will come into thy house with burnt-offerings; I will pay thee my vows, 14  Which my lips uttered, And my mouth spake, when I was in distress. 15  I will offer unto thee burnt-offerings of fatlings, With the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah 16  Come, and hear, all ye that fear God, And I will declare what he hath done for my soul. 17  I cried unto him with my mouth, And he was extolled with my tongue. 18  If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear: 19  But verily God hath heard; He hath attended to the voice of my prayer. 20  Blessed be God, Who hath not turned away my prayer, Nor his lovingkindness from me.
