How Awesome Are Your Deeds
To the choirmaster. A Song. A Psalm.
Ps. 81:1; 95:1; 98:4; 100:1 Shout for joy to God, all the earth;
2sing the glory of his name;
# [Josh. 7:19; Isa. 42:12] give to him glorious praise!
3Say to God, #See Ps. 65:5 “How awesome are your deeds!
So great is your power that your enemies #See Ps. 18:44come cringing to you.
4 # See Ps. 22:27 All the earth worships you
and sings praises to you;
they sing praises to your name.” Selah
5 # ver. 16; Ps. 46:8 Come and see what God has done:
# [See ver. 3 above] he is awesome in his deeds toward the children of man.
6He #[Ex. 14:21] turned the sea into dry land;
they #Ps. 74:15; See Josh. 3:14-17passed through the river on foot.
There did we rejoice in him,
7who rules by his might forever,
whose #See Ps. 11:4eyes keep watch on the nations—
let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
8Bless our God, O peoples;
let the sound of his praise be heard,
9who has kept our soul among the living
and #See Ps. 121:3has not let our feet slip.
10For you, O God, have #See Job 23:10tested us;
you have tried us as silver is tried.
11You brought us into #Lam. 1:13; Ezek. 12:13the net;
you laid a crushing burden on our backs;
12you let men #Isa. 51:23 ride over our heads;
we went through fire and through #Isa. 43:2water;
yet you have brought us out to a place of abundance.
13I will come into your house with burnt offerings;
I will #See Ps. 50:14perform my vows to you,
14that which my lips uttered
and my mouth promised #See Ps. 18:6when I was in trouble.
15I will offer to you burnt offerings of fattened animals,
with the smoke of the sacrifice of rams;
I will make an offering of bulls and goats. Selah
16 # ver. 5; Ps. 34:11 Come 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#66:17 Hebrew under my tongue.#66:17 Or and he was exalted with my tongue
18If I had #Job 36:21 cherished iniquity in my heart,
# [Prov. 28:9; Isa. 59:2; John 9:31; James 4:3; See Job 27:9] the Lord would not have listened.
19But truly #Ps. 116:1, 2God has listened;
he has attended to the voice of my prayer.
20Blessed be God,
because he has not rejected my prayer
or removed his steadfast love from me!
