66 Everything on earth, shout with joy to God! 2 ·Sing [Make a psalm] about ·his glory [L the glory of his name]! Make his praise glorious! 3 Say to God, “Your works are ·amazing [majestic]! Because your power is great, your enemies ·fall [cringe; cower] before you. 4 All the earth ·worships [bows down to] you and ·sings praises to [makes a psalm for] you. They ·sing praises to [make a psalm for] your name [Phil. 2:10–12].” ·Selah[Interlude]
5 Come and see what God has done, the ·amazing [majestic] things he has done for people. 6 He turned the sea into dry land [Ex. 14–15]. The people crossed the river on foot [Josh. 3]. So let us rejoice because of what he did. 7 He rules forever with his power. ·He keeps his eye [L His eyes keep watch] on the nations, so ·people should not turn [the rebellious might not rise] against him. ·Selah[Interlude]
8 You people, ·praise [bless] our God; ·loudly sing his praise [L let the sound of his praise be heard]. 9 He ·protects our lives [L sets our lives among the living] and does not let ·us be defeated [L our feet be moved]. 10 God, you have ·tested [examined] us; you have ·purified [refined] us like silver [C removing the dross]. 11 You ·let us be trapped [brought us into the net] and put ·a heavy load on us [L misery on our backs]. 12 You let our enemies ·walk on [L ride over] our heads. We went through fire and ·flood [L water], but you brought us to a place with ·good things [abundance].
13 I will come to your ·Temple [L house] with burnt offerings [Lev. 1:1–17]. I will ·give you what I promised [repay my vows], 14 ·things I promised when I was in trouble [L which my lips poured out and my mouth said when I was in distress]. 15 I will bring you burnt offerings [Lev. 1:1–17] of fat animals, and ·I will offer sheep, bulls, and goats [L with the smoke of rams, I will offer bulls and goats]. ·Selah[Interlude]
16 All of you who fear God [Prov. 1:7], come and listen, and I will tell you what he has done for me. 17 I ·cried out [called] to him with my mouth and ·praised [exalted] him with my tongue. 18 If I had ·known of [L seen] any sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened to me. 19 But God has listened; he has ·heard [L paid attention to the sound of] my prayer. 20 ·Praise [Blessed be] God, who did not ·ignore [turn aside from] my prayer or hold back his ·love [loyalty] from me.
