Psalm 66 For the director of music. A song. A psalm. 66 1Shout for joy to God, all the earth! 2Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious. 3Say to God, ‘How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. 4All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name.’[O] 5Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind! 6He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot – come, let us rejoice in him. 7He rules for ever by his power, his eyes watch the nations – let not the rebellious rise up against him. 8Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; 9he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. 10For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. 11You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. 12You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. 13I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfil my vows to you – 14vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble. 15I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. 16Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. 17I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. 18If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; 19but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. 20Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
