Psalm for daily use
Come, let us praise Yahweh joyfully,
acclaiming the Rock of our safety;
let us come into His presence with thanksgiving,
acclaiming Him with music.
For Yahweh is a great God,
a greater King than all other gods;
from depths of earth to mountain top
everything comes under His rule;
the sea belongs to Him, He made it,
so does the land, He shaped this too.
Come in, let us bow, prostrate ourselves,
and kneel in front of Yahweh our Maker,
for this is our God,
and we are the people He pastures,
the flock that He guides.
If only you would listen to Him today,
‘Do not harden your hearts as at Meribah,
as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,
when your ancestors challenged Me, tested Me,
although they had seen what I could do.
‘For forty years that generation repelled Me,
until I said: How unreliable these people
who refuse to grasp My ways!
And so, in anger, I swore that not one
would reach the place of rest I had for them.’
