Amplified Bible

Psalm 66

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

To the Chief Musician. A Song. A Psalm.

1Shout joyfully to God, all the earth;

Sing of the honor and glory and magnificence of His name;
Make His praise glorious.

Say to God, “How awesome and fearfully glorious are Your works!
Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will pretend to be obedient to You.

“All the earth will [bow down to] worship You [in submissive wonder],
And will sing praises to You;
They will praise Your name in song.” Selah.


Come and see the works of God,
He is awesome in His deeds toward the children of men.

He turned the sea into dry land;
They crossed through the river on foot;
There we rejoiced in Him.

Who rules by His might forever,
His eyes keep watch on the nations;
Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.


Bless our God, O peoples,
And make the sound of His praise be heard abroad,

Who keeps us among the living,
And does not allow our feet to slip or stumble.
10 
For You have tested us, O God;
You have refined us as silver is refined.
11 
You brought us into the net;
You laid a heavy burden [of servitude] on [a]us.
12 
You made men (charioteers) [b]ride over our heads [in defeat];
We went through fire and through water,
Yet You brought us out into a [broad] place of abundance [to be refreshed].
13 
I shall come into Your house with burnt offerings;
I shall pay You my vows,
14 
Which my lips uttered
And my mouth spoke as a promise when I was in distress.
15 
I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat lambs,
With the [sweet] smoke of rams;
I will offer bulls with male goats. Selah.

16 
Come and hear, all who fear God [and worship Him with awe-inspired reverence and obedience],
And I will tell what He has done for me.
17 
I cried aloud to Him;
He was highly praised with my tongue.
18 
If I regard sin and baseness in my heart [that is, if I know it is there and do nothing about it],
The Lord will not hear [me];
19 
But certainly God has heard [me];
He has given heed to the voice of my prayer.
20 
Blessed be God,
Who has not turned away my prayer
Nor His lovingkindness from me.

诗篇 66

颂赞与感恩

一首诗歌,交给乐长。

1世人啊,你们要向上帝欢呼,
颂赞祂荣耀的名,
赞美祂的荣耀。
要对上帝说:“你的作为令人敬畏!
你的大能使敌人屈膝投降。
普天下都敬拜你,
颂赞你,颂赞你的名。”(细拉)

来吧,看看上帝的作为,
祂为世人行了何等奇妙的事!
祂将沧海变为干地,
让百姓步行经过。
让我们因祂的作为而欢欣吧!
祂以大能永远掌权,
祂的眼目鉴察列国,
悖逆之徒不可在祂面前妄自尊大。(细拉)

列邦啊,要赞美我们的上帝,
让歌颂祂的声音四处飘扬。
祂保全我们的生命,
不让我们失脚滑倒。
10 上帝啊,你试验我们,
熬炼我们如熬炼银子。
11 你让我们陷入网罗,
把重担压在我们的背上。
12 你让别人骑在我们的头上。
我们曾经历水火,
但你带我们到达丰盛之地。
13 我要带着燔祭来到你殿中,
履行我向你许的誓言,
14 就是我在危难中许下的誓言。
15 我要献上肥美的牲畜,
以公绵羊作馨香之祭献给你,
我要献上公牛和山羊。(细拉)

16 敬畏上帝的人啊,
你们都来听吧,
我要告诉你们祂为我所做的事。
17 我曾开口向祂呼求,
扬声赞美祂。
18 倘若我心中藏匿罪恶,
主必不垂听我的呼求。
19 然而,上帝听了我的祷告,
倾听了我的祈求。
20 上帝当受称颂!
祂没有对我的祷告拒而不听,
也没有收回祂对我的慈爱。
