Psalms 95

Psalm 951

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
