Psalms 66

David exhorteth to praise God,

Psalms 66:1 {For the Chief Musician. A Song, a Psalm.} Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth: Psalms 66:2 Sing forth the glory of his name: Make his praise glorious. Psalms 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible are thy works! Through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. Psalms 66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, And shall sing unto thee; They shall sing to thy name. Selah.

to observe his great works,

Psalms 66:5 Come, and see the works of God; [He is] terrible in his doing toward the children of men. Psalms 66:6 He turned the sea into dry land; They went through the river on foot: There did we rejoice in him. Psalms 66:7 He ruleth by his might for ever; His eyes observe the nations: Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

to bless him for his gracious benefits.

Psalms 66:8 Oh bless our God, ye peoples, And make the voice of his praise to be heard; Psalms 66:9 Who holdeth our soul in life, And suffereth not our feet to be moved. Psalms 66:10 For thou, O God, hast proved us: Thou hast tried us, as silver is tried. Psalms 66:11 Thou broughtest us into the net; Thou layedst a sore burden upon our loins.

He voweth for himself religious service to God.

Psalms 66:12 Thou didst cause men to ride over our heads; We went through fire and through water; But thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place. Psalms 66:13 I will come into thy house with burnt-offerings; I will pay thee my vows, Psalms 66:14 Which my lips uttered, And my mouth spake, when I was in distress. Psalms 66:15 I will offer unto thee burnt-offerings of fatlings, With the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

He declareth God's special goodness to himself.

Psalms 66:16 Come, and hear, all ye that fear God, And I will declare what he hath done for my soul. Psalms 66:17 I cried unto him with my mouth, And he was extolled with my tongue. Psalms 66:18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear: Psalms 66:19 But verily God hath heard; He hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Psalms 66:20 Blessed be God, Who hath not turned away my prayer, Nor his lovingkindness from me.
