Psalm 66. Jubilate Deo.
O BE joyful in God, all ye lands; * sing praises unto the honour
of his Name; make his praise to be glorious.
2 Say unto God, O how wonderful art thou in thy works! * through
the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies bow down unto
3 For all the world shall worship thee, * sing of thee, and praise
4 O come hither, and behold the works of God; * how wonderful
he is in his doing toward the children of men.
5 He turned the sea into dry land, * so that they went through
the water on foot; there did we rejoice thereof.
6 He ruleth with his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations:
* and such as will not believe shall not be able to exalt themselves.
7 O praise our God, ye peoples, * and make the voice of his praise
to be heard;
8 Who holdeth our soul in life; * and suffereth not our feet
9 For thou, O God, hast proved us; * thou also hast tried us,
like as silver is tried.
10 Thou broughtest us into the snare; * and laidest trouble upon
11 Thou sufferedst men to ride over our heads; * we went through
fire and water, and thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
12 I will go into thine house with burnt-offerings, and will
pay thee my vows, * which I promised with my lips, and spake
with my mouth, when I was in trouble.
13 I will offer unto thee fat burnt-sacrifices, with the incense
of rams; * I will offer bullocks and goats.
14 O come hither, and hearken, all ye that fear God; * and I
will tell you what he hath done for my soul.
15 I called unto him with my mouth, * and gave him praises with
16 If I incline unto wickedness with mine heart, * the Lord will
not hear me.
17 But God hath heard me; * and considered the voice of my prayer.
18 Praised be God, who hath not cast out my prayer, * nor turned
his mercy from me.
