Psalm 66 Contemporary English Version (CEV)๐Ÿ•Š

(A song and a psalm for the music leader.)

Shout Praises to God๐Ÿ•Š

66:1 Tell everyone on this earth
    to shout praises to God!
2 Sing about his glorious name.
    Honor him with praises.
3 Say to God, โ€œEverything you do
    is fearsome,
    and your mighty power makes
    your enemies come crawling.
4 You are worshiped by everyone!
    We all sing praises to you.โ€

5 Come and see the fearsome things
    our God has done!
6 When God made the sea dry up,
    our people walked across,
    and because of him,
    we celebrated there.
7 His mighty power rules forever,
    and nothing the nations do
can be hidden from him.
    So donโ€™t turn against God.

8 All of you people,
come praise our God!
    Let his praises be heard.
9 God protects us from death
    and keeps us steady.

10 Our God, you tested us,
    just as silver is tested.
11 You trapped us in a net
    and gave us heavy burdens.
12 You sent war chariots
    to crush our skulls.
We traveled through fire
    and through floods,
    but you brought us
    to a land of plenty.

13 I will bring sacrifices
    into your house, my God,
and I will do what I promised
14 when I was in trouble.
15 I will sacrifice my best sheep
    and offer bulls and goats
    on your altar.

16 All who worship God,
    come here and listen;
    I will tell you everything
    God has done for me.

17 I prayed to the Lord,
    and I praised him.
18 If my thoughts had been sinful,
    he would have refused
    to hear me.
19 But God did listen
    and answered my prayer.
20 Letโ€™s praise God!
He listened when I prayed,
    and he is always kind.๐Ÿ•Š
