Psalm 66


For the choir director. A song. A psalm.

Let the whole earth shout joyfully to God!u

Sing about the glory of his name;

make his praise glorious.v

Say to God, “How awe-inspiring are your works!

Your enemies will cringe before you

because of your great strength.w

The whole earth will worship you

and sing praise to you.

They will sing praise to your name.”x


Come and see the wonders of God;y

his acts for humanityE are awe-inspiring.

He turned the sea into dry land,

and they crossed the river on foot.z

There we rejoiced in him.aa

He rules forever by his might;

he keeps his eye on the nations.ab

The rebellious should not exalt themselves.ac


Bless our God, you peoples;

let the sound of his praise be heard.ad

He keeps us aliveA

and does not allow our feet to slip.a

10 For you, God, tested us;

you refined us as silver is refined.b

11 You lured us into a trap;

you placed burdens on our backs.c

1You let men ride over our heads;

we went through fire and water,

but you brought us out to abundance.B,d

13 I will enter your house with burnt offerings;

I will pay you my vowse

14 that my lips promised

and my mouth spoke during my distress.f

15 I will offer you fattened sheep as burnt offerings,

with the fragrant smoke of rams;

I will sacrifice bulls with goats.g


16 Come and listen, all who fear God,

and I will tell what he has done for me.h

17 I cried out to him with my mouth,

and praise was on my tongue.i

18 If I had been aware of malice in my heart,

the Lord would not have listened.j

19 However, God has listened;

he has paid attention to the sound of my prayer.k

20 Blessed be God!

He has not turned away my prayer

or turned his faithful love from me.l


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
