Psalms Chapter 66 – God to be praised — Reasons therefor. (To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm.)

1 Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands;


2 Sing forth the honor 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 forever; his eyes behold the nations; let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.


8 Oh 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 laidest 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.
