New International Version
8 Praise(A) our God, all peoples,
let the sound of his praise be heard;
9 he has preserved our lives(B)
and kept our feet from slipping.(C)
10 For you, God, tested(D) us;
you refined us like silver.(E)
11 You brought us into prison(F)
and laid burdens(G) on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;(H)
we went through fire and water,
but you brought us to a place of abundance.(I)
13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings(J)
and fulfill my vows(K) to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
and an offering of rams;
I will offer bulls and goats.(L)
16 Come and hear,(M) all you who fear God;
let me tell(N) you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened;(O)
19 but God has surely listened
and has heard(P) my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
who has not rejected(Q) my prayer
or withheld his love from me!
