Praise of God, Israel's Deliverer

1For the leader. A song; a psalm.

I

Shout joyfully to God, all you on earth; 2sing of his glorious name; give him glorious praise. f Ps 65, 14; Is 44, 23 . 3Say to God: “How awesome your deeds! Before your great strength your enemies cringe. 4All on earth fall in worship before you; g 66, 3–4: Ps 18, 45; Mi 7, 17 . they sing of you, sing of your name!”   Selah

II

5Come and see the works of God,* awesome in the deeds done for us. 6He changed the sea to dry land; through the river they passed on foot. h Pss 74, 15; 114, 3; Ex 14, 21f; Jos 3, 14ff; Is 44, 27; 50, 2 . Therefore let us rejoice in him, 7who rules by might forever, Whose eyes are fixed upon the nations. Let no rebel rise to challenge!   Selah 8Bless our God, you peoples; loudly sound his praise, 9Who has kept us alive and not allowed our feet to slip. i Pss 91, 12; 121, 3; 1 Sm 2, 9; Prv 3, 23 . 10You tested us, O God, tried us as silver tried by fire. j Is 48, 10 . 11You led us into a snare; you bound us at the waist as captives. 12You let captors set foot on our neck;* we went through fire and water; then you led us out to freedom. k Is 43, 2 .

13I will bring holocausts* to your house; to you I will fulfill my vows, 14The vows my lips pronounced and my mouth spoke in distress. 15Holocausts of fatlings I will offer you and burnt offerings of rams; I will sacrifice oxen and goats.   Selah 16Come and hear, all you who fear God, while I recount what has been done for me. 17I called to the Lord with my mouth; praise was upon my tongue. 18Had I cherished evil in my heart, the Lord would not have heard. 19But God did hear and listened to my voice in prayer. 20Blessed be God, who did not refuse me the kindness I sought in prayer.
