Psalm 66:8–20


8Bless our God, O | peoples;*

let the sound of his | praise be heard,

9who has kept our soul among the | living*

and has not let our | feet slip.

10For you, O God, have | tested us;*

you have tried us as sil- | ver is tried.

11You brought us in- | to the net;*

you laid a crushing burden | on our backs;

12you let men ride o- | ver our heads;*

we went through fire and through water;

yet you have brought us out to a place of a- | bundance.

13I will come into your house with burnt | offerings;*

I will perform my | vows to you,

14that which my lips | uttered*

and my mouth promised when I was in | trouble.

15I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals,

with the smoke of the sacri- | fice of rams;*

I will make an offering of | bulls and goats.

16Come and hear, all you who | fear God,*

and I will tell what he has done | for my soul.

17I cried to him | with my mouth,*

and high praise was | on my tongue.

18If I had cherished iniquity | in my heart,*

the Lord would not have | listened.

19But truly God has | listened;*

he has attended to the voice | of my prayer.

20Blesséd | be God,*

because he has not rejected my prayer

or removed his steadfast | love from me!
