Psalm 66
New Living TranslationNew International Version
1Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth!1For the director of music. A song. A psalm. Shout for joy 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 cringe 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 the praises of your name."
5Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles he performs for people!5Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for 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-- come, let us 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 rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations-- let not the rebellious rise up against him.
8Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises.8Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;
9Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.9he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver.10For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
11You captured us in your net and laid the burden of slavery on our backs.11You brought us into prison and 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 people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
13Now I come to your Temple with burnt offerings to fulfill the vows I made to you—13I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you--
14yes, the sacred vows that I made when I was in deep trouble.14vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke 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 sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats.
16Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he did for me.16Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you 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; his praise was on my tongue.
18If I had not confessed the sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.18If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;
19But God did listen! He paid attention to my prayer.19but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer.
20Praise God, who did not ignore my prayer or withdraw his unfailing love from me.20Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
