66:1 Tell everyone on this earth to shout praises to God! 2 Sing about his glorious name. Honor him with praises. 3 Say to God, “Everything you do is fearsome, and your mighty power makes your enemies come crawling. 4 You are worshiped by everyone! We all sing praises to you.”
5 Come and see the fearsome things our God has done! 6 When God made the sea dry up, our people walked across, and because of him, we celebrated there. 7 His mighty power rules forever, and nothing the nations do can be hidden from him. So don’t turn against God.
8 All of you people, come praise our God! Let his praises be heard. 9 God protects us from death and keeps us steady.
10 Our God, you tested us, just as silver is tested. 11 You trapped us in a net and gave us heavy burdens. 12 You sent war chariots to crush our skulls. We traveled through fire and through floods, but you brought us to a land of plenty.
13 I will bring sacrifices into your house, my God, and I will do what I promised 14 when I was in trouble. 15 I will sacrifice my best sheep and offer bulls and goats on your altar.
16 All who worship God, come here and listen; I will tell you everything God has done for me.
17 I prayed to the Lord, and I praised him. 18 If my thoughts had been sinful, he would have refused to hear me. 19 But God did listen and answered my prayer. 20 Let’s praise God! He listened when I prayed, and he is always kind.🕊
