Wednesdays With The Word

Psalm 66

1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth;
2 Sing the glory of His name;
Give to Him glorious praise!
3 Say to God, "How awesome are Your deeds!
So great is Your power that Your enemies come cringing to You.
4 All the earth worships You
and sings praises to You;
they sing praises to Your name.

5 Come and see what God has done:
He is awesome in His deeds toward the children of man.
6 He turned the sea into dry land;
they passed through the river on foot.
There did we rejoice in Him,
7 Who rules by His might forever,
Whose eyes keep watch on the nations—
let not the rebellious exalt themselves.

8 Bless our God, O peoples;
let the sound of His praise be heard,
9 Who has kept our soul among the living
and has not let our feet slip.
10 For You, O God, have tested us;
You have tried us as silver is tried.
11 You brought us into the net;
You laid a crushing burden on our backs;
12 You let men ride over our heads;
we went through fire and through water;
Yet You have brought us out to a place of abundance.

13 I will come into Your house with burnt offerings;
I will perform my vows to You,
14 That which my lips uttered
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
15 I 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.

16 Come and hear, all you who fear God,
and I will tell what He has done for my soul.
17 I cried to Him with my mouth,
and high praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished iniquity in my heart,
the Lord would not have listened.
19 But truly God has listened;
He has attended to the voice of my prayer.

20 Blessed be God,
because He has not rejected my prayer
or removed His steadfast love from me!
