Psalm 66

Praise and worship the Lord—He tests and tries men—Sacrifices are to be offered in His house.

To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm.

1 Make a ajoyful noise unto God, all ye lands:

2 Sing forth the honour 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 asubmit themselves unto thee.

4 All the earth shall aworship 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 asea into dry land: they went through the bflood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.

7 He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

8 O 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 afeet to bbe moved.

10 For thou, O God, hast aproved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

11 Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst aaffliction upon our loins.

12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through awater: but thou bbroughtest us out into a cwealthy 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 ahear 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.
