Give a ringing cheer to God all the earth;
sing the glory of God's name;
give to God glorious praise.
Say to God, "How awe-inspiring are your deeds!
because of the magnitude of your strength, your enemies come cringing before you.
All the earth prostrates itself before you;
they sing praises to you,
they sing praises to your name." Selah
Come see see the deeds of God:
God is awe-inspiring in deeds toward humankind.
God turned the sea into dry land;
Israel passed through the river on foot.
There we rejoiced in God,
who rules by might forever,
whose eyes keep watch on the nations--
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
Bless our God, o peoples,
loudly sound the praise of God,
who has kept us among the living,
and has not allowed our feet to slip.
For you, God, have tested us;
you have refined us as silver is refined.
You brought us into the net;
you have laid distress on our loins;
you let people ride over our heads;
we went through fire and water;
yet you have brought us out into freedom.
I will enter your house with burnt offerings;
I will pay you my vows,
which my lips uttered,
and my mouth promised when I was in trouble.
I will offer to you burnt offerings of fatlings,
with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;
I will make an offering of cattle and goats. Selah.
Come and hear, all you who fear God,
and I will recount to you what God has done for me.
I cried to God with my mouth,
and he was extolled with my tongue.
If I had cherished evil in my heart,
the Lord would not have heard me.
But God truly has heard;
God has paid attention to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God, because God has not rejected my prayer
or removed God's loyalty from me.
