Psalm 66


How Awesome Are Your Deeds



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER. A SONG. A PSALM. 


      1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth; 

      2 sing the glory of his name; 

      give to him glorious praise! 

      3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! 

      So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you. 

      4 All the earth worships you 

      and sings praises to you; 

      they sing praises to your name.” Selah 


      5 Come and see what God has done: 

      he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man. 

      6 He turned the sea into dry land; 

      they passed through the river on foot. 

      There did we rejoice in him, 

      7 who rules by his might forever, 

      whose eyes keep watch on the nations— 

      let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah 


      8 Bless our God, O peoples; 

      let the sound of his praise be heard, 

      9 who has kept our soul among the living 

      and has not let our feet slip. 

      10 For you, O God, have tested us; 

      you have tried us as silver is tried. 

      11 You brought us into the net; 

      you laid a crushing burden on our backs; 

      12 you let men ride over our heads; 

      we went through fire and through water; 

      yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance. 


      13 I will come into your house with burnt offerings; 

      I will perform my vows to you, 

      14 that which my lips uttered 

      and my mouth promised when I was in trouble. 

      15 I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals, 

      with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; 

      I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah 


      16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, 

      and I will tell what he has done for my soul. 

      17 I cried to him with my mouth, 

      and high praise was on my tongue. 

      18 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, 

      the Lord would not have listened. 

      19 But truly God has listened; 

      he has attended to the voice of my prayer. 


      20 Blessed be God, 

      because he has not rejected my prayer 

      or removed his steadfast love from me!
