1: (To the chief Musician. A Song: a Psalm.) Shout aloud unto God, all the earth: 2: Sing forth the glory of his name, make his praise glorious; 3: Say unto God, How terrible are thy works! because of the greatness of thy strength, thine enemies come cringing unto thee. 4: All the earth shall worship thee, and sing psalms unto thee: they shall sing forth thy name. Selah. 5: Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in [his] doings toward the children of men. 6: He turned the sea into dry [land]; they went through the river on foot: there did we rejoice in him. 7: He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes observe the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah. 8: Bless our God, ye peoples, and make the voice of his praise to be heard; 9: Who hath set 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 a net, thou didst lay a heavy burden upon our loins; 12: Thou didst cause men to ride over our head; we went through fire and through water: but thou hast brought us out into abundance. 13: I will go into thy house with burnt-offerings; I will perform my vows to thee, 14: Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble. 15: I will offer up unto thee burnt-offerings of fatted beasts, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah. 16: Come, hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul. 17: I called unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue. 18: Had I regarded iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not hear. 19: But God hath heard; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. 20: Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his loving-kindness from me!
