Psalm 66

How Awesome Are Your Deeds

To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm.

1Shout for joy to God, all the earth;

2sing the glory of his name;

give to him glorious praise!

3Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!

So great is your power that your enemies come cringing to you.

4All the earth worships you

and sings praises to you;

they sing praises to your name.” Selah

5Come and see what God has done:

he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.

6He turned the sea into dry land;

they passed through the river on foot.

There did we rejoice in him,

7who rules by his might forever,

whose eyes keep watch on the nations—

let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah

8Bless our God, O peoples;

let the sound of his praise be heard,

9who has kept our soul among the living

and has not let our feet slip.

10For you, O God, have tested us;

you have tried us as silver is tried.

11You brought us into the net;

you laid a crushing burden on our backs;

12you let men ride over our heads;

we went through fire and through water;

yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.

13I will come into your house with burnt offerings;

I will perform my vows to you,

14that which my lips uttered

and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.

15I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals,

with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;

I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah

16Come and hear, all you who fear God,

and I will tell what he has done for my soul.

17I cried to him with my mouth,

and high praise was on1 my tongue.2

18If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,

the Lord would not have listened.

19But truly God has listened;

he has attended to the voice of my prayer.

20Blessed be God,

because he has not rejected my prayer

or removed his steadfast love from me!

Psalm 67

Make Your Face Shine upon Us

To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm. A Song.

1May God be gracious to us and bless us

and make his face to shine upon us, Selah

2that your way may be known on earth,

your saving power among all nations.

3Let the peoples praise you, O God;

let all the peoples praise you!

4Let the nations be glad and sing for joy,

for you judge the peoples with equity

and guide the nations upon earth. Selah

5Let the peoples praise you, O God;

let all the peoples praise you!

6The earth has yielded its increase;

God, our God, shall bless us.

7God shall bless us;

let all the ends of the earth fear him!
