1 To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm. Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth; 1 Shout with joy to God, all the earth!
2 sing the glory of his name; give to him glorious praise! 2 Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious!
3 Say to God, "How terrible are thy deeds! So great is thy power that thy enemies cringe before thee. 3 Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
4 All the earth worships thee; they sing praises to thee, sing praises to thy name." [Selah] 4 All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name." "Selah"
5 Come and see what God has done: he is terrible in his deeds among men. 5 Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man's behalf !
6 He turned the sea into dry land; men passed through the river on foot. There did we rejoice in him, 6 He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot-- come, let us rejoice in him.
7 who rules by his might for ever, whose eyes keep watch on the nations--let not the rebellious exalt themselves. [Selah] 7 He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations-- let not the rebellious rise up against him. "Selah"
8 Bless our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard, 8 Praise our God, O peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard;
9 who has kept us among the living, and has not let our feet slip. 9 he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For thou, O God, hast tested us; thou hast tried us as silver is tried. 10 For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
11 Thou didst bring us into the net; thou didst lay affliction on our loins; 11 You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.
12 thou didst let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water; yet thou hast brought us forth to a spacious place. 12 You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
13 I will come into thy house with burnt offerings; I will pay thee my vows, 13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you--
14 that which my lips uttered and my mouth promised when I was in trouble. 14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.
15 I will offer to thee burnt offerings of fatlings, with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams; I will make an offering of bulls and goats. [Selah] 15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. "Selah"
16 Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for me. 16 Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried aloud to him, and he was extolled with my tongue. 17 I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened. 18 If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;
19 But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the voice of my prayer. 19 but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer.
20 Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me! 20 Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
