1 6 (For the one directing. Shir. Mizmor.) Make a joyful shout unto Elohim, kol HaAretz;
2 Sing forth the kavod Shmo; make kavod (glorious) His tehillah (praise).
3 Say unto Elohim, How norah (awesome) art Thou in Thy ma’asim (works)! Through the greatness of Thy oz (might) shall Thine oyevim cower before Thee.
4 Kol ha’aretz shall prostrate before Thee, and shall sing unto Thee; they shall sing praise to Shimecha. Selah.
5 Come and see the works of Elohim; He is norah (awesome) in deed toward Bnei Adam.
6 He turned the yam into yabashah (dry land; see Gn 1:10); they passed through the nahar on regel; there did we rejoice in Him.
7 He ruleth by His gevurah (power) olam (forever); His eyes are a watchman’s eyes over the Goyim; let not the sorerim (rebellious ones) exalt themselves. Selah.
8 Barchu Eloheinu, Amim, and make the kol (sound) of His tehillah (praise) to be heard.
9 He is the One who set nafsheinu in chayyim and does not permit ragleinu (our foot) to slip.
10 For Thou, Elohim, hath tested us and hast proved us; Thou hast put us in the crucible’s refining and refined us as kesef.
11 Thou broughtest us into the metzudah (prison); Thou laidst a mu’akah (burden) upon our loins.
12 Thou hast caused enosh (mankind) to ride over rosheinu (our head); we went through eish and through mayim; but Thou broughtest us out into plenty.
13 I will come into Thy Beis [HaMikdash] with olot; I will fulfill for Thee my nedarim,
14 Which my sfatayim have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in tzoros.
15 I will offer unto Thee olot mekhim (burnt offerings of fat animals), with the ketoret (incense, offering) of rams; I will offer bakar with goats. Selah.
16 Come and hear, Kol Yirei Elohim, and I will declare what He hath done for my nefesh.
17 I cried unto Him with my mouth, and He was extolled with my leshon.
18 If I regard avon (iniquity, sin) in my lev, Adonoi will not hear me;
19 But surely Elohim hath heard me; He hath attended to the kol tefillati (voice of my prayer).
20 Baruch Elohim, Who hath not turned away my tefillah, nor His chesed from me.
