Today's praises: Shout for joy to God, all the earth!Sing the glory of his name;make his praise glorious


Psalm 66

1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth!z

2 Sing the glory of his name;a

make his praise glorious.b

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

So great is your power

that your enemies cringed before you.

All the earth bows downe to you;

they sing praisef to you,

they sing the praises of your name.”a

Come and see what God has done,

his awesome deedsg for mankind!

He turned the sea into dry land,h

they passed throughi the waters on foot—

come, let us rejoicej in him.

He rules foreverk by his power,

his eyes watchl the nations—

let not the rebelliousm rise up against him.

Praisen our God, all peoples,

let the sound of his praise be heard;

he has preserved our liveso

and kept our feet from slipping.p

10 For you, God, testedq us;

you refined us like silver.r

11 You brought us into prisons

and laid burdenst on our backs.

12 You let people ride over our heads;u

we went through fire and water,

but you brought us to a place of abundance.v

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offeringsw

and fulfill my vowsx to you—

14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke

when I was in trouble.

15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you

and an offering of rams;

I will offer bulls and goats.y

16 Come and hear,z all you who fear God;

let me tella you what he has done for me.

17 I cried out to him with my mouth;

his praise was on my tongue.

18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,

the Lord would not have listened;b

19 but God has surely listened

and has heardc my prayer.

20 Praise be to God,

who has not rejectedd my prayer

or withheld his love from me!
