1 To the Chief Musician. A Song. A Psalm. Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth. 2 Sing forth the honor of His name; make His praise glorious. 3 Say to God, How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power, Your enemies pretend obedience to You. 4 All the earth shall worship You, and shall sing to You; they praise Your name. Selah.
5 Come and see the works of God; He is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men. 6 He turns the sea into dry land; they went through the flood on foot; there we rejoiced in Him. 7 He rules by His power forever; His eyes behold the nations; let not the rebels lift themselves up. Selah. 8 O bless our God, O peoples, and make the voice of His praise to be heard; 9 who holds our soul in life, and does not allow our feet to slide.
10 For You have proved us, O God; You have tested us, as silver is refined. 11 You have brought us into the net; You have laid affliction on our loins. 12 You have allowed men to ride at our head; we have gone through fire and through water, but You have brought us out to plenty.
13 I will go into Your house with burnt offerings; I will pay You my vows, 14 those which my lips have uttered and my mouth has spoken in my trouble. 15 I will offer to You burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bulls with goats. Selah.
16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for my soul. 17 I cried to Him with my mouth, and exaltations were under my tongue. 18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, Jehovah will not hear; 19 Surely God has heard; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. 20 Blessed is God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me.
