Psalms Chapter 65
An invitation to praise God.
65:1. Unto the end, a canticle of a psalm of the resurrection. Shout with joy to God, all the earth,
65:2. Sing ye a psalm to his name; give glory to his praise.
65:3. Say unto God, How terrible are thy works, O Lord! in the multitude of thy strength thy enemies shall lie to thee.
65:4. Let all the earth adore thee, and sing to thee: let it sing a psalm to thy name.
65:5. Come and see the works of God; who is terrible in his counsels over the sons of men.
65:6. Who turneth the sea into dry land, in the river they shall pass on foot: there shall we rejoice in him.
65:7. Who by his power ruleth for ever: his eyes behold the nations; let not them that provoke him be exalted in themselves.
65:8. O bless our God, ye Gentiles: and make the voice of his praise to be heard.
65:9. Who hath set my soul to live: and hath not suffered my feet to be moved:
65:10. For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us by fire, as silver is tried.
65:11. Thou hast brought us into a net, thou hast laid afflictions on our back:
65:12. Thou hast set men over our heads. We have passed through fire and water, and thou hast brought us out into a refreshment.
65:13. I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
65:14. Which my lips have uttered, And my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
65:15. I will offer up to thee holocausts full of marrow, with burnt offerings of rams: I will offer to thee bullocks with goats.
65:16. Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will tell you what great things he hath done for my soul.
65:17. I cried to him with my mouth: and I extolled him with my tongue.
65:18. If I have looked at iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.
65:19. Therefore hath God heard me, and hath attended to the voice of my supplication.
65:20. Blessed be God, who hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.
