An exhortation to praise God,

95:1 Oh come, letís sing to Yahweh.
Letís shout aloud to the rock of our salvation!

95:2 Letís come before his presence with thanksgiving.
Letís extol him with songs!

for his greatness;

95:3 For Yahweh is a great God,
a great King above all gods.

95:4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth.
The heights of the mountains are also his.

95:5 The sea is his, and he made it.
His hands formed the dry land.

and for his goodness;

95:6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down.
Letís kneel before Yahweh, our Maker,

95:7 for he is our God.
We are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep in his care.
Today, oh that you would hear his voice!

and not to tempt him.

95:8 Donít harden your heart, as at Meribah,
as in the day of Massah in the wilderness,

95:9 when your fathers tempted me,
tested me, and saw my work.

95:10 Forty long years I was grieved with that generation,
and said,

ďIt is a people that errs in their heart.
They have not known my ways

95:11 Therefore I swore in my wrath,

ďThey wonít enter into my rest
