Psalm 95

1Oh come, let's sing to TheIAM. Let's shout aloud to the rock of our salvation! 2Let's come before his presence with thanksgiving. Let's extol him with songs! 3For TheIAM is a great God, a great King above all gods. 4In his hand are the deep places of the earth. The heights of the mountains are also his. 5The sea is his, and he made it. His hands formed the dry land. 6Oh come, let's worship and bow down. Let's kneel before TheIAM, our Maker, 7for 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! 8Don't harden your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness, 9when your fathers tempted me, tested me, and saw my work. 10Forty long years I was grieved with that generation, and said, "It is a people that errs in their heart. They have not known my ways." 11Therefore I swore in my wrath, "They won't enter into my rest."
