Psalm 66

Praise for God's Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer.

For the choir director. A Song. A Psalm.

1 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;
2 Sing the glory of His name; Make His praise glorious.
3 Say to God, "How awesome are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give [fn] feigned obedience to You.
4 "All the earth will worship You, And will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name." Selah [fn].

5 Come and see the works of God, Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.
6 He turned the sea into dry land; They passed through the river on foot; There let us rejoice in Him!
7 He rules by His might forever; His eyes keep watch on the nations; Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

8 Bless our God, O peoples, And sound [fn] His praise abroad,
9 Who keeps [fn] us in life And does not allow our feet to slip [fn].
10 For You have tried us, O God; You have refined us as silver is refined.
11 You brought us into the net; You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins.
12 You made men ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water, Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance.
13 I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall pay You my vows,
14 Which my lips uttered And my mouth spoke when I was in distress.
15 I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts, With the smoke of rams; I shall make an offering of bulls [fn] with male goats. Selah.

16 Come and hear, all who fear [fn] God, And I will tell of what He has done for my soul.
17 I cried to Him with my mouth, And He [fn] was extolled with my tongue.
18 If I regard [fn] wickedness in my heart, The Lord will [fn] not hear [fn];
19 But certainly God has heard; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
20 Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer Nor His lovingkindness from me.
