Psalm 66
King James BibleNew International Version
1To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:1For the director of music. A song. A psalm. Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
2Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.2Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious.
3Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.3Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
4All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.4All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name."
5Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.5Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind!
6He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.6He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot-- come, let us rejoice in him.
7He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.7He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations-- let not the rebellious rise up against him.
8O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:8Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;
9Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.9he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.10For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
11Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.11You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.
12Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.12You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
13I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,13I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you--
14Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.14vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.
15I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.15I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats.
16Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.16Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
17I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.17I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:18If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;
19But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.19but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.
20Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.20Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
