Psalm 66:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Psalm 66[a]

Praise of God, Israel’s Deliverer

For the leader. A song; a psalm.

I

Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;
    sing of his glorious name;
    give him glorious praise.
Say to God: “How awesome your deeds!
    Before your great strength your enemies cringe.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 66 In the first part (Ps 66:1–12), the community praises God for powerful acts for Israel, both in the past (the exodus from Egypt and the entry into the land [Ps 66:6]) and in the present (deliverance from a recent but unspecified calamity [Ps 66:8–12]). In the second part (Ps 66:13–20), an individual from the rescued community fulfills a vow to offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving. As often in thanksgivings, the rescued person steps forward to teach the community what God has done (Ps 66:16–20).

He changed the sea to dry land;
    through the river they passed on foot.
There we rejoiced in him,

His eyes are fixed upon the nations.
