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! (ESV)
