Psalm 65
New Living TranslationInternational Standard Version
1What mighty praise, O God, belongs to you in Zion. We will fulfill our vows to you,1In Zion, God, praise silently awaits you, and vows will be paid to you.
2for you answer our prayers. All of us must come to you.2Since you hear prayer, everybody will come to you.
3Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all.3My acts of iniquity—they overwhelm me! Our transgressions—you blot them out!
4What joy for those you choose to bring near, those who live in your holy courts. What festivities await us inside your holy Temple.4How blessed is the one you choose, the one you cause to live in your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of your house, yes, even with the holiness of your Temple.
5You faithfully answer our prayers with awesome deeds, O God our savior. You are the hope of everyone on earth, even those who sail on distant seas.5With awesome deeds of justice you will answer us, God our Deliverer; you are the confidence for everyone at the ends of the earth, even for those far away overseas.
6You formed the mountains by your power and armed yourself with mighty strength.6The One who established the mountains by his strength is clothed with omnipotence.
7You quieted the raging oceans with their pounding waves and silenced the shouting of the nations.7He calmed the roar of seas, the roaring of the waves, and the turmoil of the peoples.
8Those who live at the ends of the earth stand in awe of your wonders. From where the sun rises to where it sets, you inspire shouts of joy.8Those living at the furthest ends of the earth are seized by fear because of your miraculous deeds. You make the going forth of the morning and the evening shout for joy.
9You take care of the earth and water it, making it rich and fertile. The river of God has plenty of water; it provides a bountiful harvest of grain, for you have ordered it so.9You take care of the earth, you water it, and you enrich it greatly with the river of God that overflows with water. You provide grain for them, for you have ordained it this way.
10You drench the plowed ground with rain, melting the clods and leveling the ridges. You soften the earth with showers and bless its abundant crops.10You fill the furrows of the field with water so that their ridges overflow. You soften them with rain showers; their sprouts you have blessed.
11You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.11You crown the year with your goodness; your footsteps drop prosperity behind them.
12The grasslands of the wilderness become a lush pasture, and the hillsides blossom with joy.12The wilderness pastures drip with dew, and the hills wrap themselves with joy.
13The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep, and the valleys are carpeted with grain. They all shout and sing for joy!13The meadows are clothed with flocks of sheep, and the valleys are covered with grain. They shout for joy; yes, they burst out in song!
