1 Come! Let's sing for joy to the Lord! Let's shout out praises to our protector who delivers us! 2 Let's enter his presence with thanksgiving! Let's shout out to him in celebration!
3 For the Lord is a great God, a great king who is superior to all gods. 4 The depths of the earth are in his hand, and the mountain peaks belong to him. 5 The sea is his, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land.
6 Come! Let's bow down and worship! Let's kneel before the Lord, our creator! 7 For he is our God; we are the people of his pasture, the sheep he owns. Today, if only you would obey him! 8 He says, "Do not be stubborn like they were at Meribah, like they were that day at Massah in the wilderness, 9 where your ancestors challenged my authority, and tried my patience, even though they had seen my work. 10 For forty years I was continually disgusted with that generation, and I said, 'These people desire to go astray; they do not obey my commands.' 11 So I made a vow in my anger, 'They will never enter into the resting place I had set aside for them.'"
