Psalm 95 English Standard Version (ESV)

Let Us Sing Songs of Praise

95 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
    let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
    let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the Lord is a great God,
    and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth;
    the heights of the mountains are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
    and his hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
    let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!
For he is our God,
    and we are the people of his pasture,
    and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice,
    do not harden your hearts, as at Meribah,
    as on the day at Massah in the wilderness,
when your fathers put me to the test
    and put me to the proof, though they had seen my work.
10 For forty years I loathed that generation
    and said, “They are a people who go astray in their heart,
    and they have not known my ways.”
11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,
    “They shall not enter my rest.”

Psalm 95 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Praise to the Lord, and Warning against Unbelief.

95 O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord,
Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with [a]thanksgiving,
Let us shout joyfully to Him with [b]psalms.
For the Lord is a great God
And a great King above all gods,
In whose hand are the depths of the earth,
The peaks of the mountains are His also.
[c]The sea is His, for it was He who made it,
And His hands formed the dry land.

Come, let us worship and bow down,
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God,
And we are the people of His [d]pasture and the sheep of His hand.
Today, [e]if you would hear His voice,
Do not harden your hearts, as at [f]Meribah,
As in the day of [g]Massah in the wilderness,
“When your fathers tested Me,
They tried Me, though they had seen My work.
10 “For forty years I loathed that generation,
And said they are a people who err in their heart,
And they do not know My ways.
11 “Therefore I swore in My anger,
Truly they shall not enter into My rest.”

Psalm 95 New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing to the Lord!
    Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
    Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
For the Lord is a great God,
    a great King above all gods.
He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
    and the mightiest mountains.
The sea belongs to him, for he made it.
    His hands formed the dry land, too.

Come, let us worship and bow down.
    Let us kneel before the Lord our maker,
    for he is our God.
We are the people he watches over,
    the flock under his care.

If only you would listen to his voice today!
The Lord says, “Don’t harden your hearts as Israel did at Meribah,
    as they did at Massah in the wilderness.
For there your ancestors tested and tried my patience,
    even though they saw everything I did.
10 For forty years I was angry with them, and I said,
‘They are a people whose hearts turn away from me.
    They refuse to do what I tell them.’
11 So in my anger I took an oath:
    ‘They will never enter my place of rest.’”

Psalm 95 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

Psalm 95

Come, let’s sing joyfully to the Lord.
    Let’s shout happily to the rock of our salvation.
    Let’s come into his presence with a song of thanksgiving.
    Let’s shout happily to him with psalms.
The Lord is a great God and a great king above all gods.
    In his hand are the deep places of the earth,
        and the mountain peaks are his.
    The sea is his.
        He made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

Come, let’s worship and bow down.
    Let’s kneel in front of the Lord, our maker,
        because he is our God
            and we are the people in his care,
                the flock that he leads.

If only you would listen to him today!
    “Do not be stubborn like my people were at Meribah,
        like the time at Massah in the desert.
            Your ancestors challenged me and tested me there,
                although they had seen what I had done.
10     For 40 years I was disgusted with those people.
    So I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts continue to stray.
        They have not learned my ways.’
11     That is why I angrily took this solemn oath:
        ‘They will never enter my place of rest!’”
