Why does it have strange spelling?
1 Dauid exhorteth to praise God, 5 To obserue his great workes, 8 To blesse him for his gracious benefits. 12 He voweth for himselfe religious seruice to God. 16 He declareth Gods speciall goodnesse to himselfe.
[To the chiefe musician, a song or Psalme.] Make a ioyfull noise vnto God, all yee lands.1
Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
Say vnto God, How terrible art thou in thy workes? through the greatnesse of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselues vnto thee.3
All the earth shall worship thee; and shall sing vnto thee, they shall sing to thy name; Selah.
Come and see the workes of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foote, there did we reioyce in him.
He ruleth by his power for euer, his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselues. Selah.
O blesse our God, yee people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard.
Which holdeth our soule in life, and suffereth not our feete to be moued.9
For thou, O God, hast proued vs: thou hast tried vs, as siluer is tryed.
Thou broughtest vs into the net; thou layedst affliction vpon our loynes.
Thou hast caused men to ride ouer our heads, we went through fire, and through water: but thou broughtest vs out into a wealthy place.12
I will goe into thy house, with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vowes,
Which my lips haue vttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.14
I will offer vnto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rammes: I will offer bullockes with goates. Selah.15
Come and heare all ye that feare God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soule.
I cried vnto him with my mouth: and he was extolled with my tongue.
If I regard iniquitie in my heart: the Lord will not heare me.
But verily God hath heard mee; hee hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed bee God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercie from me.
