1 5 O come, let us sing unto Hashem; let us make a joyful noise to the Tzur of our salvation.
2 Let us come before His presence with todah, and extol Him with zemirot (joyful songs).
3 For Hashem is El Gadol, and Melech Gadol above kol elohim (g-ds).
4 In His yad are the deep places of ha’aretz; the peaks of the harim are His also.
5 The yam is His, and He made it; and His hands formed the yabashah (dry land).
6 O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before Hashem Oseinu (our Maker).
7 For He is Eloheinu; and we are the people of His pasture, and the tzon of His yad. Today if ye will hear His voice,
8 Harden not your lev, as in Merivah, and as in the Yom Massah in the midbar;
9 When your avot tested Me, tried Me, and saw My work.
10 Arba’im shanah was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do stray in their lev, and they have no da’as of My ways;
11 Unto whom I swore an oath in My wrath that they should not enter into My menuchah.
