The Book of Psalms

Return to Index
1Oh come, let us sing unto Jehovah; Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
2Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving; Let us make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
3For Jehovah is a great God, And a great King above all gods.
4In his hand are the deep places of the earth; The heights of the mountains are his also.
5The sea is his, and he made it; And his hands formed the dry land.
6Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before Jehovah our Maker:
7For he is our God, And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To-day, oh that ye would hear his voice!
8Harden not your heart, as at Meribah, As in the day of Massah in the wilderness;
9When your fathers tempted me, Proved me, and saw my work.
10Forty years long was I grieved with [that] generation, And said, It is a people that do err in their heart, And they have not known my ways:
11Wherefore I sware in my wrath, That they should not enter into my rest. Psalm 96
