Psalms 66

To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm.


Make a joyful noise to God, all ye lands:
all...: Heb. all the earth
2Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious. 3Say to God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thy enemies submit themselves to thee.
submit...: or, yield feigned obedience: Heb. lie
4All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing to thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah. 5Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men. 6He turned the sea into dry land : they went through the flood on foot: there we rejoiced in him. 7He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

8O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard: 9Who holdeth our soul in life, and alloweth not our feet to be moved.
holdeth: Heb. putteth
10For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. 11Thou hast brought us into the net; thou hast laid affliction upon our loins. 12Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place .
wealthy: Heb. moist

13I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows, 14Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
uttered: Heb. opened
15I will offer to thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bulls with goats. Selah.
fatlings: Heb. marrow
16Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul. 17I cried to him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. 18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me : 19But verily God hath heard me ; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. 20Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
