Psalm 66 NET

66:1 For the music director, a song, a psalm.

Shout out praise to God, all the earth!

2 Sing praises about the majesty of his reputation.

Give him the honor he deserves!

3 Say to God:

“How awesome are your deeds!

Because of your great power your enemies cower in fear before you.

4 All the earth worships you

and sings praises to you.

They sing praises to your name.” (Selah)

5 Come and witness God’s exploits!

His acts on behalf of people are awesome.

6 He turned the sea into dry land;

they passed through the river on foot.

Let us rejoice in him there.

7 He rules by his power forever;

he watches the nations.

Stubborn rebels should not exalt themselves. (Selah)

8 Praise our God, you nations.

Loudly proclaim his praise.

9 He preserves our lives

and does not allow our feet to slip.

10 For you, O God, tested us;

you purified us like refined silver.

11 You led us into a trap;

you caused us to suffer.

12 You allowed men to ride over our heads;

we passed through fire and water,

but you brought us out into a wide open place.

13 I will enter your temple with burnt sacrifices;

I will fulfill the vows I made to you,

14 which my lips uttered

and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.

15 I will offer up to you fattened animals as burnt sacrifices,

along with the smell of sacrificial rams.

I will offer cattle and goats. (Selah)

16 Come! Listen, all you who are loyal to God.

I will declare what he has done for me.

17 I cried out to him for help

and praised him with my tongue.

18 If I had harbored sin in my heart,

the Lord would not have listened.

19 However, God heard;

he listened to my prayer.

20 God deserves praise,

for he did not reject my prayer

or abandon his love for me.
