1: Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
2: Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
3: Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
4: All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
5: Come and see the works of God: he is terrible in his doing toward the children of men.
6: He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him.
7: He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
8: O bless our God, ye people, and make the voice of his praise to be heard:
9: Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.
10: For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou hast tried us, as silver is tried.
11: Thou broughtest us into the net; thou laidst affliction upon our loins.
12: Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
13: I will go into thy house with burnt offerings: I will pay thee my vows,
14: Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.
15: I will offer unto thee burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.
16: Come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.
17: I cried unto him with my mouth, and he was extolled with my tongue.
18: If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:
19: But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer.
20: Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me.

brought out into a wealthy place
giving God my offerings
paying God my vows which I spoke when I was in trouble
declaring God's goodness
heard by God when I am not regarding sin in my heart
