Psalm 66
New Living TranslationKing James Bible
1Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!1To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
2Sing about the glory of his name! Tell the world how glorious he is.2Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
3Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! Your enemies cringe before your mighty power.3Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
4Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises, shouting your name in glorious songs.” Interlude4All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
5Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people!5Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
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 went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
7For by his great power he rules forever. He watches every movement of the nations; let no rebel rise in defiance. Interlude7He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises.8O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
9Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.9Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
10You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver.10For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
11You captured us in your net and laid the burden of slavery on our backs.11Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
12Then you put a leader over us. We went through fire and flood, but you brought us to a place of great abundance.12Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
13Now I come to your Temple with burnt offerings to fulfill the vows I made to you—13I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
14yes, the sacred vows that I made when I was in deep trouble.14Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
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 unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.16Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
17For I cried out to him for help, praising him as I spoke.17I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
18If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.18If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
19But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.19But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.20Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
