|<< Psalm 95 >>|
GOD'S WORD ® Translation
Come, let's sing joyfully to the LORD. Let's shout happily to the rock of our salvation.
2Let's come into his presence with a song of thanksgiving. Let's shout happily to him with psalms.
3The LORD is a great God and a great king above all gods.
4In his hand are the deep places of the earth, and the mountain peaks are his.
5The sea is his. He made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6Come, let's worship and bow down. Let's kneel in front of the LORD, our maker,
7because he is our God and we are the people in his care, the flock that he leads. If only you would listen to him today!
8"Do not be stubborn like [my people were] at Meribah, like the time at Massah in the desert.
9Your ancestors challenged me and tested me there, although they had seen what I had done.
10For 40 years I was disgusted with those people. So I said, 'They are a people whose hearts continue to stray. They have not learned my ways.'
11That is why I angrily took this solemn oath: 'They will never enter my place of rest!'"
