Make a a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
Sing out the honor of His name;
Make His praise glorious.
Say to God,
"How b awesome are Your works!
c Through the greatness of Your power
Your enemies shall submit themselves to You.
d All the earth shall worship You
And sing praises to You;
They shall sing praises to Your name." Selah
Come and see the works of God;
He is awesome in His doing toward the sons of men.
e He turned the sea into dry land;
f They went through the river on foot.
There we will rejoice in Him.
He rules by His power forever;
His eyes observe the nations;
Do not let the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah
Oh, bless our God, you peoples!
And make the voice of His praise to be heard,
Who keeps our soul among the living,
And does not allow our feet to be moved.
For g You, O God, have tested us;
h You have refined us as silver is refined.
i You brought us into the net;
You laid affliction on our backs.
j You have caused men to ride over our heads;
k We went through fire and through water;
But You brought us out to rich fulfillment.
l I will go into Your house with burnt offerings;
m I will pay You my vows,
Which my lips have uttered
And my mouth has spoken when I was in trouble.
I will offer You burnt sacrifices of fat animals,
With the sweet aroma of rams;
I will offer bulls with goats. Selah
Come and hear, all you who fear God,
And I will declare what He has done for my soul.
I cried to Him with my mouth,
And He was extolled with my tongue.
n If I regard iniquity in my heart,
The Lord will not hear.
But certainly God o has heard me;
He has attended to the voice of my prayer.
Blessed be God,
Who has not turned away my prayer,
Nor His mercy from me!

Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
By awesome deeds in righteousness You will answer us, O God of our salvation, You who are the confidence of all the ends of the earth, And of the far-off seas.
As soon as they hear of me they obey me; The foreigners submit to me.
Praise the LORD, all you Gentiles! Laud Him, all you peoples!
And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.
Joshua 3:14 - 16
So it was, when the people set out from their camp to cross over the Jordan, with the priests bearing the ark of the covenant before the people.
But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
You have tested my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and have found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
I will bring the one -third through the fire, Will refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them. I will say, 'This is My people'; And each one will say, 'The LORD is my God.'
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver; He will purify the sons of Levi, And purge them as gold and silver, That they may offer to the LORD An offering in righteousness.
1 Peter 1:7
That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
From above He has sent fire into my bones, And it overpowered them; He has spread a net for my feet And turned me back; He has made me desolate And faint all the day.
I will also spread My net over him, and he shall be caught in My snare. I will bring him to Babylon, to the land of the Chaldeans; yet he shall not see it, though he shall die there.
But I will put it into the hand of those who afflict you, Who have said to you, 'Lie down, that we may walk over you.' And you have laid your body like the ground, And as the street, for those who walk over.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
I will pay my vows to the LORD Now in the presence of all His people.
Psalms 116:17 - 19
I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, And will call upon the name of the LORD.
When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; For He has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you have vowed -

I LOVE the LORD, because He has heard My voice and my supplications.
