The Psalms

Psalm 95

An exhortation to praise God, 1, 2, for his greatness, 3-5; and for his goodness, 6, 7; and not to test him, 8-11.

1 O come, let us sing to the LORD. Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving and make a joyful noise to him with psalms.

3 For the LORD is a great God and a great King above all gods.

4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth. The strength of the hills is his also.

5 The sea is his, and he made it. And his hands formed the dry land.

6 O come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

7 For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. Today, if you will hear his voice,

8 Do not harden your heart, as at Meribah, and as in the day of Massah in the wilderness,

9 "When your fathers tested me, they proved me and saw my work.

10 Forty long years I was grieved with this generation and said, 'It is a people who err in their heart, and they have not known my ways,'

11 To whom I swore in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest."
