King James Version

Psalm 66

1Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:

Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.

Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.

All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.

Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.

He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.

He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:

Which holdeth 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 the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.

12 Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.

13 I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,

14 Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.

15 I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

16 Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

17 I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.

18 If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:

19 But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

20 Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

Salme 66

Lovsang til den nådige og trofaste Gud

1Til korlederen: En lovsang.

Bryd ud i fryderåb for Gud, hele jorden,
    lovpris hans herlighed og magt.
        Giv ham den ære, han fortjener.
Sig til ham: „Dine gerninger er underfulde, Gud,
    fjenderne viger for din vældige magt.
Hele jorden skal tilbede dig
    og lovprise din herlighed.”

Kom og se Guds undere,
    han gør fantastiske mirakler for sit folk.
Han banede en vej gennem havet,
    så folket kunne gå tørskoet over.
        Lad os juble over hans vældige magt.
Han har herredømmet for evigt og altid,
    han regerer over alverdens folk.
        Kun en tåbe gør oprør mod ham.
Pris Gud, alle folkeslag på jorden,
    lad lovsange lyde til hans ære.
Han holder vores liv i sin hånd,
    han sørger for, at vi ikke snubler.

10 Du brugte ilden til at rense os, Gud,
    som sølv i en smeltedigel.
11 Du fangede os i dit net
    og gjorde os til slaver.

12 Du lod fjenderne underkue os,
    vi gik gennem ild og vand,
men du førte os ud i frihed til sidst
    og gav os fremgang og fred.
13 Jeg vil bringe dig brændofre i din helligdom
    for at opfylde de løfter, jeg gav dig.
14 Jeg vil stå ved de ord, jeg sagde,
    da jeg råbte til dig i min nød.
15 Jeg vil ofre mit fedekvæg til dig.
    Tag imod mine vædderes vellugt,
        duften fra mine tyre og geder.

16 Kom og hør, I, der ærer min Gud.
    Jeg vil fortælle, hvad han har gjort for mig.
17 Jeg råbte til ham om hjælp,
    jeg priste ham med min lovsang.
18 Havde jeg huset ondskab i hjertet,
    ville han ikke have hørt min bøn.
19 Men han lyttede til mig,
    han hørte min tryglende bøn.
20 Jeg priser dig, Gud, fordi du hørte min bøn
    og omsluttede mig med din trofaste kærlighed.
