New International Version

Psalm 66

Psalm 66

For the director of music. A song. A psalm.

Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
    Sing the glory of his name;
    make his praise glorious.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
    So great is your power
    that your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth bows down to you;
    they sing praise to you,
    they sing the praises of your name.”[a]

Come and see what God has done,
    his awesome deeds for mankind!
He turned the sea into dry land,
    they passed through the waters on foot—
    come, let us rejoice in him.
He rules forever by his power,
    his eyes watch the nations—
    let not the rebellious rise up against him.

Praise our God, all peoples,
    let the sound of his praise be heard;
he has preserved our lives
    and kept our feet from slipping.
10 For you, God, tested us;
    you refined us like silver.
11 You brought us into prison
    and laid burdens on our backs.
12 You let people ride over our heads;
    we went through fire and water,
    but you brought us to a place of abundance.

13 I will come to your temple with burnt offerings
    and fulfill my vows to you—
14 vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke
    when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice fat animals to you
    and an offering of rams;
    I will offer bulls and goats.

16 Come and hear, all you who fear God;
    let me tell you what he has done for me.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth;
    his praise was on my tongue.
18 If I had cherished sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened;
19 but God has surely listened
    and has heard my prayer.
20 Praise be to God,
    who has not rejected my prayer
    or withheld his love 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。
