|<< Psalm 66 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Praise God, all the Earth!
2Sing the honor of his Name! Sing the honor of his glory!
3Say to God, “How awesome are your works! By the greatness of your might your enemies will be enlisted for you.”
4“In all the Earth they will worship you and they will sing to you and will glorify your Name for eternity.”
5And they will say, “Come, behold the works of God who multiplies his wonders upon the children of men!”
6For he turned the sea to dry land and they crossed the river on foot; there we shall rejoice in him.
7The eyes of him who rules in his manliness to eternity behold among the nations, and rebels will not be exalted for ever.
8Bless God, oh peoples, and make the voice of his praise heard,
9Who sets our soul in life and does not give our feet unto shaking!
10For you have tried us, God, and you have proved us like silver is tried.
11You brought us into the net and you have appointed affliction to our loins.
12You have made a man to ride over our head; you have brought us into fire and into water, and you have brought us out unto an expanse.
13I shall go to your house in honor and I shall pay my vow:
14That which opened my lips in a speech of my mouth in trouble.
15I shall offer burnings of fat to you; I shall offer to you with the savor of rams and I shall offer bulls and goats.
16Come, hear, and I shall tell you all the works of God, that which he has done for my soul.
17With my mouth I called him and he answered me and I extolled him with my tongue:
18“If you have seen evil in my heart, you will not save me, Lord Jehovah.”
19Then God heard the voice of my prayer.
20Blessed is Lord Jehovah, who has not turned away my prayer or his grace from me!
