Make a Joyful Noise1 For the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm. Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth! 2 Sing the glory of His name; make His praise glorious. 3 Say to God, “How awesome are Your deeds! So great is Your power that Your enemies cower before You. 4 All the earth bows down to You; they sing praise to You; they sing praise to Your name.” Selah 5 Come and see the works of God; how awesome are His deeds toward mankind. 6 He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the waters on foot; there we rejoiced in Him. 7 He rules forever by His power; His eyes watch the nations. Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah 8 Praise our God, O peoples; let the sound of His praise be heard. 9 He preserves our lives and keeps our feet from slipping. 10 For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us like silver. 11 You led us into the net; You laid burdens on our backs. 12 You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but You brought us into abundance. 13 I will enter Your house with burnt offerings; I will fulfill my vows to You— 14 [the vows] that my lips promised and my mouth spoke in my distress. 15 I will offer You fatlings as burnt offerings, with the fragrant smoke of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. Selah 16 Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for me. 17 I cried out to Him with my mouth, and His praise was on my tongue. ▼
▼Or and He was exalted with my tongue18 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. 19 But God has surely heard; He has attended to the sound of my prayer. 20 Blessed [be] God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld from me His loving devotion!
