Psalm 66
New King James VersionInternational Standard Version
1To the Chief Musician. A Song. A Psalm. Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!1Shout praise to God all the earth!
2Sing out the honor of His name; Make His praise glorious.2Sing praise about the glory of his name. Make his praise glorious.
3Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.3Say to God: "How awesome are your works! Because of your great strength your enemies cringe before you."
4All the earth shall worship You And sing praises to You; They shall sing praises to Your name.” Selah4The whole earth worships you. They sing praise to you. They sing praise to your name. Interlude
5Come and see the works of God; He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of men.5Come and see the awesome works of God on behalf of human beings:
6He turned the sea into dry land; They went through the river on foot. There we will rejoice in Him.6He turned the sea into dry land. Israel crossed the river on foot; let us rejoice in him.
7He rules by His power forever; His eyes observe the nations; Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah7He rules by his power forever, his eyes watching over the nations. Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Interlude
8Oh, bless our God, you peoples! And make the voice of His praise to be heard,8Bless our God, people, and let the sound of his praise be heard.
9Who keeps our soul among the living, And does not allow our feet to be moved.9He gives us life and does not permit our feet to slip.
10For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us as silver is refined.10For you, God, tested us, to purify us like fine silver.
11You brought us into the net; You laid affliction on our backs.11You have led us into a trap and set burdens on our backs.
12You have caused men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.12You caused men to ride over us. You brought us through fire and water, but you led us to abundance.
13I will go into Your house with burnt offerings; I will pay You my vows,13I will come to your house with burnt offerings. I will fulfill my vows to you
14Which my lips have uttered And my mouth has spoken when I was in trouble.14that my lips uttered and that my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.
15I will offer You burnt sacrifices of fat animals, With the sweet aroma of rams; I will offer bulls with goats. Selah15I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat, along with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams. I will offer bulls along with goats. Interlude
16Come and hear, all you who fear God, And I will declare what He has done for my soul.16Come and listen, all of you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.
17I cried to Him with my mouth, And He was extolled with my tongue.17I called aloud to him and praised him with my tongue.
18If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear.18Were I to cherish iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not listen to me.
19But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer.19Surely God has heard, and he paid attention to my prayers.
20Blessed be God, Who has not turned away my prayer, Nor His mercy from me!20Blessed be God, who did not turn away my prayers nor his gracious love from me.
