{To the chief Musician.
A Song: a Psalm.}
Shout aloud unto God, all the earth:
2
Sing forth the glory of his name, make his praise glorious;
3
Say unto God, How terrible are thy works!
because of the greatness of thy strength, thine enemies come cringing unto thee.
4
All the earth shall worship thee, and sing psalms unto thee: they shall sing forth thy name.
Selah.
5
Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in [his] doings toward the children of men.
6
He turned the sea into dry [land];
they went through the river on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
7
He ruleth by his power for ever;
his eyes observe the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves.
Selah.
8
Bless our God, ye peoples, and make the voice of his praise to be heard;
9
Who hath set our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
10
For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
11
Thou broughtest us into a net, thou didst lay a heavy burden upon our loins;
12
Thou didst cause men to ride over our head;
we went through fire and through water: but thou hast brought us out into abundance.
13
I will go into thy house with burnt-offerings;
I will perform my vows to thee,
14
Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
15
I will offer up unto thee burnt-offerings of fatted beasts, with the incense of rams;
I will offer bullocks with goats.
Selah.
16
Come, hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
17
I called unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
18
Had I regarded iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not hear.
19
But God hath heard;
he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20
Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his loving-kindness from me!
