Praise for God's Mighty Deeds and for His Answer to Prayer.

1 1Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;
2 Sing the 2glory of His name; Make His 3praise glorious.
3 Say to God, "How 4awesome are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will 5give feigned obedience to You.
4 "6All the earth will worship You, And will 7sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name." Selah.
5 8Come and see the works of God, Who is 9awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men.
6 He 10turned the sea into dry land; They passed through 11the river on foot; There let us 12rejoice in Him!
7 He 13rules by His might forever; His 14eyes keep watch on the nations; Let not the rebellious 15exalt themselves. Selah.
8 Bless our God, O peoples, And 16sound * His praise abroad,
9 Who 17keeps us in life And 18does not allow our feet to slip.
10 For You have 19tried us, O God; You have 20refined us as silver is refined.
11 You 21brought us into the net; You laid an oppressive burden upon our loins.
12 You made men 22ride over our heads; We went through 23fire and through water, Yet You 24brought us out into a place of abundance.
13 I shall 25come into Your house with burnt offerings; I shall 26pay You my vows,
14 Which my lips uttered And my mouth spoke when I was 27in distress.
15 I shall 28offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts, With the smoke of 29rams; I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats. Selah.
16 30Come and hear, all who fear God, And I will 31tell of what He has done for my soul.
17 I cried to Him with my mouth, And He was 32extolled with my tongue.
18 If I 33regard wickedness in my heart, The 34Lord will not hear;
19 But certainly 35God has heard; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
20 36Blessed be God, Who 37has not turned away my prayer Nor His lovingkindness from me.
