Psalms 66

Psalm 66

1David exhorteth to praise God, 5to observe his great works, 8to bless him for his gracious benefits: 13he voweth for himself religious service to God: 16he declareth God's special goodness to himself.
To the chief Musician, 1A Song or Psalm.
1 Make 1a joyful noise unto God, aall ye lands:
2 1Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
3 Say 1unto God, How 2terrible art thou in thy works! 3through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies asubmit themselves unto thee.
4 All 1the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
5 Come 1and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
6 He 1turned the sea into dry land: 2they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
7 He 1ruleth by his power for ever; 2his eyes behold the nations: 3let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8 O 1bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
9 Which aholdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
10 aFor thou, O God, 1hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
11 Thou 1broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
12 Thou hast caused men 1to ride over our heads; we went 2through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a awealthy place.
13 I 1will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
14 Which my lips have auttered, and my mouth hath spoken, 1when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of afatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16 1Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
17 I 1cried unto him with my mouth, and he 2was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I 1regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will 2not hear me:
19 but 1verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20 1Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
