Psalm 66 English Standard Version

Praise for God's Mighty Deeds

66 1  Shout for joy to God, all the earth; 2  sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! 3  Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. 4  All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name." Selah 5  Come and see what God has done: he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man. 6  He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him, 7  who rules by his might forever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations-- let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah

8  Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of his praise be heard, 9  who has kept our soul among the living and has not let our feet slip. 10  For you, O God, have tested us; you have tried us as silver is tried. 11  You brought us into the net; you laid a crushing burden on our backs; 12  you let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.

13  I will come into your house with burnt offerings; I will perform my vows to you, 14  that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble. 15  I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah 16  Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul. 17  I cried to him with my mouth, and high praise was on[1] my tongue.[2] 18  If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. 19  But truly God has listened; he has attended to the voice of my prayer. 20  Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me!
