Psalms 95:1-11

95  O come let us cry out joyfully to Jehovah!+ Let us shout in triumph to our Rock of salvation.+   Let us come before his person* with thanksgiving;+ Let us with melodies shout in triumph to him.+   For Jehovah is a great God*+ And a great King over all [other] gods,*+   He in whose hand are the inmost depths* of the earth+ And to whom the peaks of the mountains belong;+   To whom the sea, which he himself made, belongs+ And whose own hands formed the dry land itself.+   O come in, let us worship and bow down;+ Let us kneel+ before Jehovah our Maker.+   For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasturage and the sheep of his hand.+ Today if YOU people listen to his own voice,+   Do not harden YOUR heart as at Mer′i·bah,*+ As in the day of Mas′sah* in the wilderness,+   When YOUR forefathers put me to the proof;+ They examined me, they also saw my activity.+ 10  For forty years I kept feeling a loathing toward [that]* generation,+ And I proceeded to say: “They are a people wayward at heart,+ And they themselves have not come to know my ways”;+ 11  Concerning whom I swore in my anger:+ “They shall not enter into my resting-place.”*+
