|Praise for Gods Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer|
|For the Chief Musician. A Song, a Psalm.|
| ||MAKE a joyful noise unto God, all the earth:|
| ||Sing forth the glory of his name:|
Make his praise glorious.
| ||Say unto God, How terrible are thy works!|
Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit 1 themselves unto thee.
| ||All the earth shall worship thee,|
And shall sing unto thee;
They shall sing to thy name. [Selah
| ||Come, and see the works of God;|
He is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
| ||He turned the sea into dry land;|
They went through the river on foot:
There did 2 we rejoice in him.
| ||He ruleth by his might for ever;|
His eyes observe the nations:
Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. [Selah
| ||Oh bless our God, ye peoples,|
And make the voice of his praise to be heard;
| ||Who holdeth 3 our soul in life,|
And suffereth not our feet to be moved.
| ||For thou, O God, hast proved us:|
Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
| ||Thou broughtest us into the net;|
Thou layedst a sore burden upon our loins.
| ||Thou didst cause men to ride over our heads;|
We went through fire and through water;
But thou broughtest us out into a 4 wealthy place.
| ||I will come into thy house with burnt-offerings;|
I will pay thee my vows,
| ||Which my lips uttered,|
And my mouth spake, when I was in distress.
| ||I will offer unto thee burnt-offerings of fatlings,|
With the incense of rams;
I will offer bullocks with goats. [Selah
| ||Come, and hear, all ye that fear God,|
And I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
| ||I cried unto him with my mouth,|
And he 5 was extolled with my tongue.
| ||If I regard 6 iniquity in my heart,|
The Lord will 7 not hear:
| ||But verily God hath heard;|
He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
| ||Blessed be God,|
Who hath not turned away my prayer,
Nor his lovingkindness from me.
