PSALM 66 Praise for God’s Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer. For the choir director. A Song. A Psalm. 66 1Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; 2Sing the glory of His name; Make His praise glorious. 3Say to God, “How awesome are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will [M]give feigned obedience to You. 4“All the earth will worship You, And will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name.” [N]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 [O]sound His praise abroad, 9Who [P]keeps us in life And does not allow our feet to [Q]slip. 10For You have tried us, O God; You have refined us as silver is refined. 11You brought us into the net; You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins. 12You made men ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water, Yet You brought us out into a place of abundance. 13I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall pay You my vows, 14Which my lips uttered And my mouth spoke when I was in distress. 15I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts, With the smoke of rams; I shall make an offering of [R]bulls with male goats. Selah. 16Come and hear, all who [S]fear God, And I will tell of what He has done for my soul. 17I cried to Him with my mouth, And [T]He was extolled with my tongue. 18If I [U]regard wickedness in my heart, The Lord [V]will not [W]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.
