Praise for God’s Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer.
To the Chief Musician. A Song. A Psalm.
66 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; 2 Sing of the honor and glory and magnificence of His name; Make His praise glorious. 3 Say to God, “How awesome and fearfully glorious are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will pretend to be obedient to You. 4 “All the earth will [bow down to] worship You [in submissive wonder], And will sing praises to You; They will praise Your name in song.” Selah.
5 Come and see the works of God, He is awesome in His deeds toward the children of men. 6 He turned the sea into dry land; They crossed through the river on foot; There we rejoiced in Him. 7 Who rules by His might forever, His eyes keep watch on the nations; Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8 Bless our God, O peoples, And make the sound of His praise be heard abroad, 9 Who keeps us among the living, And does not allow our feet to slip or stumble. 10 For You have tested us, O God; You have refined us as silver is refined. 11 You brought us into the net; You laid a heavy burden [of servitude] on [a]us. 12 You made men (charioteers) [b]ride over our heads [in defeat]; We went through fire and through water, Yet You brought us out into a [broad] place of abundance [to be refreshed]. 13 I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall pay You my vows, 14 Which my lips uttered And my mouth spoke as a promise when I was in distress. 15 I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat lambs, With the [sweet] smoke of rams; I will offer bulls with male goats. Selah.
16 Come and hear, all who fear God [and worship Him with awe-inspired reverence and obedience], And I will tell what He has done for me. 17 I cried aloud to Him; He was highly praised with my tongue. 18 If I regard sin and baseness in my heart [that is, if I know it is there and do nothing about it], The Lord will not hear [me]; 19 But certainly God has heard [me]; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. 20 Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer Nor His lovingkindness from me.
