1Come, let us praise the Lord! Let’s shout praises to the Rock, who saves us. 2Let’s sing songs of thanks to the Lord. Let’s sing happy songs of praise to him. 3Why? Because the Lord is a great God! He is the Great King ruling over all the other “gods.” 4The deepest caves and the highest mountains belong to the Lord. 5The ocean is his—he created it. God made the dry land with his own hands. 6Come, let’s bow down and worship him! Let’s praise the God who made us! 7He is our God, and we are his people. We are his sheep today— if we listen to his voice. 8God says, ”Don’t be stubborn, like you were at Meribah, like you were at Massah in the desert. 9Your ancestors tested me. They tested me, but then they saw what I could do! 10I was patient with those people for 40 years. And I know that they are not faithful. Those people refused to follow my teachings. 11So I was angry, and I swore ˻(promised)˼ they would not enter my land of rest.
