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.

詩篇 66

頌讚與感恩

一首詩歌,交給樂長。

1世人啊,你們要向上帝歡呼,
頌讚祂榮耀的名,
讚美祂的榮耀。
要對上帝說:「你的作為令人敬畏!
你的大能使敵人屈膝投降。
普天下都敬拜你,
頌讚你,頌讚你的名。」(細拉)

來吧,看看上帝的作為,
祂為世人行了何等奇妙的事!
祂將滄海變為乾地,
讓百姓步行經過。
讓我們因祂的作為而歡欣吧!
祂以大能永遠掌權,
祂的眼目鑒察列國,
悖逆之徒不可在祂面前妄自尊大。(細拉)

列邦啊,要讚美我們的上帝,
讓歌頌祂的聲音四處飄揚。
祂保全我們的生命,
不讓我們失腳滑倒。
10 上帝啊,你試驗我們,
熬煉我們如熬煉銀子。
11 你讓我們陷入網羅,
把重擔壓在我們的背上。
12 你讓別人騎在我們的頭上。
我們曾經歷水火,
但你帶我們到達豐盛之地。
13 我要帶著燔祭來到你殿中,
履行我向你許的誓言,
14 就是我在危難中許下的誓言。
15 我要獻上肥美的牲畜,
以公綿羊作馨香之祭獻給你,
我要獻上公牛和山羊。(細拉)

16 敬畏上帝的人啊,
你們都來聽吧,
我要告訴你們祂為我所做的事。
17 我曾開口向祂呼求,
揚聲讚美祂。
18 倘若我心中藏匿罪惡,
主必不垂聽我的呼求。
19 然而,上帝聽了我的禱告,
傾聽了我的祈求。
20 上帝當受稱頌!
祂沒有對我的禱告拒而不聽,
也沒有收回祂對我的慈愛。
