Psalm 95 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

Worship and Obey the Lord

95 Sing joyful songs to the Lord!
    Praise the mighty rock [a]
    where we are safe.
Come to worship him
with thankful hearts
    and songs of praise.

The Lord is the greatest God,
    king over all other gods.
He holds the deepest part
    of the earth in his hands,
    and the mountain peaks
    belong to him.
The ocean is the Lord’s
    because he made it,
    and with his own hands
    he formed the dry land.

Bow down and worship
    the Lord our Creator!
The Lord is our God,
    and we are his people,
    the sheep he takes care of
    in his own pasture.

Listen to God’s voice today!
Don’t be stubborn and rebel
    as your ancestors did
    at Meribah and Massah[b]
    out in the desert.
For forty years
they tested God
    and saw
    the things he did.
10 Then God got tired of them
    and said,
“You never show good sense,
    and you don’t understand
    what I want you to do.”
11 In his anger, God told them,
    “You people will never enter
    my place of rest.”
