To the victor; a song, a psalm.
Shout to God, all the earth!
Sing··psalms··to the glory of His name;
make His praise to be glory.
Say to God, How fearsome are Thy deeds!
In the multitude of Thy strength shall Thine enemies denounce themselves to Thee.
All the earth shall bow··down to Thee; and shall sing··psalms to Thee,
they shall sing··psalms··to Thy name. Selah.
Go and see the works of God;
Fearsome are His actions for▵ the sons of man.
He turned the sea to dry land; they passed through the river on◦ foot:
there we were··glad in Him.
He rules in His eternal might; His eyes watch over◦ the nations;
let not the defiant exalt themselves. Selah.
Bless our God, ye peoples,
and make the voice of His praise to be heard:
who sets our soul among◦ the living,
and suffers not our foot to be moved.
For Thou, O God, hast tested us;
Thou hast refined us as silver is refined.
Thou broughtest us into the hunting net*;
Thou didst set oppression upon◦ our loins.
Thou didst cause man▵ to ride over our head; we came into fire and into water;
but Thou didst bring· us ·out to abundance.
I will come··into Thy house with burnt··offerings,
I will pay to Thee my vows,
with which my lips have opened··wide,
and which my mouth has spoken, in my adversity.
I will offer··up to Thee burnt··offerings of marrows, with incense of rams;
I will make an offering of cattle with he-goats. Selah.
Go, hear! All ye who fear God,
and I will recount◦ what He has done for my soul.
I called to▵ Him with my mouth,
and He was exalted with my tongue.
If I see iniquity◦ in my heart,
the Lord will not hear;
But surely God has heard;
He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God, Who has not turned··aside my prayer,
nor◦ His mercy from◦ me.
