1Come, let’s sing out loud to the Lord!
Let’s raise a joyful shout to the rock of our salvation!
2Let’s come before him with thanks!
Let’s shout songs of joy to him!
3The Lord is a great God,
the great king over all other gods.
4The earth’s depths are in his hands;
the mountain heights belong to him;
5the sea, which he made, is his
along with the dry ground,
which his own hands formed.
6Come, let’s worship and bow down!
Let’s kneel before the Lord, our maker!
7He is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
the sheep in his hands.
If only you would listen to his voice right now!
8"Don’t harden your hearts
like you did at Meribah,
like you did when you were at Massah,
in the wilderness,
9when your ancestors tested me
and scrutinized me,
even though they had already seen my acts.
10For forty years I despised that generation;
I said, ‘These people have twisted hearts.
They don’t know my ways.’
11So in anger I swore:
‘They will never enter my place of rest!’"
