Psalms 66 (asv)

Psalms 66 (asv)

For the Chief Musician. A song, a Psalm.

66:1Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth:

66:2Sing forth the glory of his name:

Make his praise glorious.

66:3Say unto God, How terrible are thy works!

Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

66:4All the earth shall worship thee,

And shall sing unto thee;

They shall sing to thy name.


66:5Come, and see the works of God;

He is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.

66:6He turned the sea into dry land;

They went through the river on foot:

There did we rejoice in him.

66:7He ruleth by his might for ever;

His eyes observe the nations:

Let not the rebellious exalt themselves.


66:8Oh bless our God, ye peoples,

And make the voice of his praise to be heard;

66:9Who holdeth our soul in life,

And suffereth not our feet to be moved.

66:10For thou, O God, hast proved us:

Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.

66:11Thou broughtest us into the net;

Thou layedst a sore burden upon our loins.

66:12Thou didst cause men to ride over our heads;

We went through fire and through water;

But thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

66:13I will come into thy house with burnt-offerings;

I will pay thee my vows,

66:14Which my lips uttered,

And my mouth spake, when I was in distress.

66:15I will offer unto thee burnt-offerings of fatlings,

With the incense of rams;

I will offer bullocks with goats.


66:16Come, and hear, all ye that fear God,

And I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

66:17I cried unto him with my mouth,

And he was extolled with my tongue.

66:18If I regard iniquity in my heart,

The Lord will not hear:

66:19But verily God hath heard;

He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

66:20Blessed be God,

Who hath not turned away my prayer,

Nor his lovingkindness from me.
