1: To the Overseer. -- A Song, a Psalm. Shout ye to God, all the earth. 2: Praise ye the honour of His name, Make ye honourable His praise. 3: Say to God, 'How fearful [are] Thy works, By the abundance of Thy strength, Thine enemies feign obedience to Thee. 4: All the earth do bow to Thee, They sing praise to Thee, they praise Thy name.' Selah. 5: Come ye, and see the works of God, Fearful acts toward the sons of men. 6: He hath turned a sea to dry land, Through a river they pass over on foot, There do we rejoice in Him. 7: Ruling by His might to the age, His eyes among the nations do watch, The refractory exalt not themselves. Selah. 8: Bless, ye peoples, our God, And sound the voice of His praise, 9: Who hath placed our soul in life, And suffered not our feet to be moved. 10: For Thou hast tried us, O God, Thou hast refined us as the refining of silver. 11: Thou hast brought us into a net, Thou hast placed pressure on our loins. 12: Thou hast caused man to ride at our head. We have entered into fire and into water, And Thou bringest us out to a watered place. 13: I enter Thy house with burnt-offerings, I complete to Thee my vows, 14: For opened were my lips, And my mouth spake in my distress: 15: 'Burnt-offerings of fatlings I offer to Thee, With perfume of rams, I prepare a bullock with he-goats.' Selah. 16: Come, hear, all ye who fear God, And I recount what he did for my soul. 17: Unto Him [with] my mouth I have called, And exaltation [is] under my tongue. 18: Iniquity, if I have seen in my heart, The Lord doth not hear. 19: But God hath heard, He hath attended to the voice of my prayer. 20: Blessed [is] God, Who hath not turned aside my prayer, And His loving-kindness, from me!
