Psalm 66

Praise for God’s Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer.

For the choir director. A Song. A Psalm.

1 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;

2 Sing the glory of His name;
          Make His praise glorious.

3 Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!
          Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You.

4 “All the earth will worship You,
          And will sing praises to You;
          They will sing praises to Your name.”

5 Come and see the works of God,
          Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.

6 He turned the sea into dry land;
          They passed through the river on foot;
          There let us rejoice in Him!

7 He rules by His might forever;
          His eyes keep watch on the nations;
          Let not the rebellious exalt themselves.

8 Bless our God, O peoples,
          And sound His praise abroad,

9 Who keeps us in life
          And does not allow our feet to slip.

10 For You have tried us, O God;
          You have refined us as silver is refined.

11 You brought us into the net;
          You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins.

12 You made men ride over our heads;
          We went through fire and through water,
          Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance.

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 when I was in distress.

15 I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts,
          With the smoke of rams;
          I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats.

16 Come and hear, all who fear God,
          And I will tell of what He has done for my soul.

17 I cried to Him with my mouth,
          And He was extolled with my tongue.

18 If I regard wickedness in my heart,
          The Lord will not hear;

19 But certainly God has heard;
          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.
