Psalm 66
New Living TranslationBerean Study Bible
1Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!1For the choirmaster. A song. A Psalm. Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth!
2Sing about the glory of his name! Tell the world how glorious he is.2Sing the glory of His name; make His praise glorious.
3Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! Your enemies cringe before your mighty power.3Say to God, “How awesome are Your deeds! So great is Your power that Your enemies cower before You.
4Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises, shouting your name in glorious songs.” Interlude4All the earth bows down to You; they sing praise to You; they sing praise to Your name.” Selah
5Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people!5Come and see the works of God; how awesome are His deeds toward mankind.
6He made a dry path through the Red Sea, and his people went across on foot. There we rejoiced in him.6He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the waters on foot; there we rejoiced in Him.
7For by his great power he rules forever. He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance. Interlude7He rules forever by His power; His eyes watch the nations. Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
8Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises.8Bless our God, O peoples; let the sound of His praise be heard.
9Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.9He preserves our lives and keeps our feet from slipping.
10You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver.10For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us like silver.
11You captured us in your net and laid the burden of slavery on our backs.11You led us into the net; You laid burdens on our backs.
12Then you put a leader over us. We went through fire and flood, but you brought us to a place of great abundance.12You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but You brought us into abundance.
13Now I come to your Temple with burnt offerings to fulfill the vows I made to you—13I will enter Your house with burnt offerings; I will fulfill my vows to You—
14yes, the sacred vows that I made when I was in deep trouble.14the vows that my lips promised and my mouth spoke in my distress.
15That is why I am sacrificing burnt offerings to you— the best of my rams as a pleasing aroma, and a sacrifice of bulls and male goats. Interlude15I will offer You fatlings as burnt offerings, with the fragrant smoke of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. Selah
16Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.16Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for me.
17For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke.17I cried out to Him with my mouth and praised Him with my tongue.
18If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.18If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
19But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.19But God has surely heard; He has attended to the sound of my prayer.
20Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.20Blessed be God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld from me His loving devotion!
