Psalm 95 New International Version

A Song of Praise and Worship

95 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. 2  Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. 3  For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. 4  In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. 5  The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. 6  Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;

7  for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice, 8  "Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,[1]as you did that day at Massah[2] in the wilderness, 9  where your ancestors tested me; they tried me, though they had seen what I did. 10  For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, 'They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways.' 11  So I declared on oath in my anger, 'They shall never enter my rest.' "
