Psalm 66
NASB 1977
Praise for God’s Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer.

For the choir director. A Song. A Psalm.

     1Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;

     2Sing the glory of His name;
            Make His praise glorious.

     3Say to God, “How awesome are Thy works!
            Because of the greatness of Thy power Thine enemies will give feigned obedience to Thee.

     4“All the earth will worship Thee,
            And will sing praises to Thee;
            They will sing praises to Thy name.” Selah.

     5Come and see the works of God,
            Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.

     6He turned the sea into dry land;
            They passed through the river on foot;
            There let us rejoice in Him!

     7He rules by His might forever;
            His eyes keep watch on the nations;
            Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

     8Bless our God, O peoples,
            And sound His praise abroad,

     9Who keeps us in life,
            And does not allow our feet to slip.

     10For Thou hast tried us, O God;
            Thou hast refined us as silver is refined.

     11Thou didst bring us into the net;
            Thou didst lay an oppressive burden upon our loins.

     12Thou didst make men ride over our heads;
            We went through fire and through water;
            Yet Thou didst bring us out into a place of abundance.

     13I shall come into Thy house with burnt offerings;
            I shall pay Thee my vows,

     14Which my lips uttered
            And my mouth spoke when I was in distress.

     15I shall offer to Thee burnt offerings of fat beasts,
            With the smoke of rams;
            I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats. Selah.

     16Come and hear, all who fear God,
            And I will tell of what He has done for my soul.

     17I cried to Him with my mouth,
            And He was extolled with my tongue.

     18If I regard wickedness in my heart,
            The Lord will not hear;

     19But certainly God has heard;
            He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.

     20Blessed be God,
            Who has not turned away my prayer,
            Nor His lovingkindness from me.
