> Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
66:2 Sing to the glory of his name! Offer glory and praise!
66:3 Tell God, "How awesome are your deeds! Through the greatness of your power, your enemies submit themselves to you.
66:4 All the earth will worship you, And will sing to you; They will sing to your name." Selah.
66:5 Come, and see God's deeds-- Awesome work on behalf of the children of men.
66:6 He turned the sea into dry land. They went through the river on foot. There, we rejoiced in him.
66:7 He rules by his might forever. His eyes watch the nations. Don't let the rebellious rise up against him. Selah.
66:8 Praise our God, you peoples! Make the sound of his praise heard,
66:9 Who preserves our life among the living, And doesn't allow our feet to be moved.
66:10 For you, God, have tested us. You have refined us, as silver is refined.
66:11 You brought us into prison. You laid a burden on our backs.
66:12 You allowed men to ride over our heads. We went through fire and through water, But you brought us to the place of abundance.
66:13 I will come into your temple with burnt offerings. I will pay my vows to you,
66:14 which my lips promised, And my mouth spoke, when I was in distress.
66:15 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fat animals, With the offering of rams, I will offer bulls with goats. Selah.
66:16 Come, and hear, all you who fear God. I will declare what he has done for my soul.
66:17 I cried to him with my mouth. He was extolled with my tongue.
66:18 If I cherished sin in my heart, The Lord wouldn't have listened.
66:19 But most assuredly, God has listened. He has heard the voice of my prayer.
66:20 Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, Nor his loving kindness from me.
