95:1 Come! Let’s sing for joy to the Lord!
Let’s shout out praises to our protector who delivers us!2
95:2 Let’s enter his presence3 with thanksgiving!
Let’s shout out to him in celebration!4
95:3 For the Lord is a great God,
a great king who is superior to5 all gods.
95:4 The depths of the earth are in his hand,6
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
95:5 The sea is his, for he made it.
His hands formed the dry land.
95:6 Come! Let’s bow down and worship!7
Let’s kneel before the Lord, our creator!
95:7 For he is our God;
we are the people of his pasture,
the sheep he owns.8
Today, if only you would obey him!9
95:8 He says,10 “Do not be stubborn like they were at Meribah,11
like they were that day at Massah12 in the wilderness,13
95:9 where your ancestors challenged my authority,14
and tried my patience, even though they had seen my work.
95:10 For forty years I was continually disgusted15 with that generation,
and I said, ‘These people desire to go astray;16
they do not obey my commands.’17
95:11 So I made a vow in my anger,
‘They will never enter into the resting place I had set aside for them.’”18
