Psalm 66 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Praise God for What He Has Done

For the director of music. A song. A psalm.

66 Everything on earth, shout with joy to God!
    ·Sing [Make a psalm] about ·his glory [L the glory of his name]!
    Make his praise glorious!
Say to God, “Your works are ·amazing [majestic]!
    Because your power is great,
    your enemies ·fall [cringe; cower] before you.
All the earth ·worships [bows down to] you
    and ·sings praises to [makes a psalm for] you.
They ·sing praises to [make a psalm for] your name [Phil. 2:10–12].” ·Selah [Interlude]

Come and see what God has done,
    the ·amazing [majestic] things he has done for people.
He turned the sea into dry land [Ex. 14–15].
    The people crossed the river on foot [Josh. 3].
    So let us rejoice because of what he did.
He rules forever with his power.
    ·He keeps his eye [L His eyes keep watch] on the nations,
so ·people should not turn [the rebellious might not rise] against him. ·Selah [Interlude]

You people, ·praise [bless] our God;
    ·loudly sing his praise [L let the sound of his praise be heard].
He ·protects our lives [L sets our lives among the living]
    and does not let ·us be defeated [L our feet be moved].
10 God, you have ·tested [examined] us;
    you have ·purified [refined] us like silver [C removing the dross].
11 You ·let us be trapped [brought us into the net]
    and put ·a heavy load on us [L misery on our backs].
12 You let our enemies ·walk on [L ride over] our heads.
    We went through fire and ·flood [L water],
but you brought us to a place with ·good things [abundance].

13 I will come to your ·Temple [L house] with burnt offerings [Lev. 1:1–17].
    I will ·give you what I promised [repay my vows],
14     ·things I promised when I was in trouble [L which my lips poured out and my mouth said when I was in distress].
15 I will bring you burnt offerings [Lev. 1:1–17] of fat animals,
and ·I will offer sheep, bulls, and goats [L with the smoke of rams, I will offer bulls and goats]. ·Selah [Interlude]

16 All of you who fear God [Prov. 1:7], come and listen,
    and I will tell you what he has done for me.
17 I ·cried out [called] to him with my mouth
    and ·praised [exalted] him with my tongue.
18 If I had ·known of [L seen] any sin in my heart,
    the Lord would not have listened to me.
19 But God has listened;
    he has ·heard [L paid attention to the sound of] my prayer.
20 ·Praise [Blessed be] God,
    who did not ·ignore [turn aside from] my prayer
or hold back his ·love [loyalty] from me.
