Psalm 66

1  To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:

2  Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.

3  Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

4  All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

5  Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.

6  He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.

7  He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

8  O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:

9  Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.

10  For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

11  Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

12  Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

13  I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,

14  Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.

15  I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

16  Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

17  I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.

18  If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

19  But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

20  Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
