The second book of Psalms, song 66, New English Translation

Psalm 66

   For the music director; a song, a psalm.
   1 Shout out praise to God, all the earth!
   2 Sing praises about the majesty of his reputation! Give him the honor he deserves!
   3 Say to God: "How awesome are your deeds! Because of your great power your enemies cower in fear before you.
   4 All the earth worships you and sings praises to you! They sing praises to your name!" (Selah)
   5 Come and witness God's exploits! His acts on behalf of people are awesome!
   6 He turned the sea into dry land; they passed through the river on foot. Let us rejoice in him there!
   7 He rules by his power forever; he watches the nations. Stubborn rebels should not exalt themselves. (Selah)
   8 Praise our God, you nations! Loudly proclaim his praise!
   9 He preserves our lives and does not allow our feet to slip.
   10 For you, O God, tested us; you purified us like refined silver.
   11 You led us into a trap; you caused us to suffer.
   12 You allowed men to ride over our heads; we passed through fire and water, but you brought us out into a wide open place.
   13 I will enter your temple with burnt sacrifices; I will fulfill the vows I made to you,
   14 which my lips uttered and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.
   15 I will offer up to you fattened animals as burnt sacrifices, along with the smell of sacrificial rams. I will offer cattle and goats. (Selah)
   16 Come! Listen, all you who are loyal to God! I will declare what he has done for me.
   17 I cried out to him for help and praised him with my tongue.
   18 If I had harbored sin in my heart, the LORD would not have listened.
   19 However, God heard; he listened to my prayer.
   20 God deserves praise, for he did not reject my prayer or abandon his love for me!
