7 O bless our God, you peoples:
and cause his praises to resound,
8 Who has held our souls in life:
who has not suffered our feet to slip.
9 For you have proved us, O God:
you have tried us as silver is tried.
10 You brought us into the net:
you laid sharp torment on our loins.
11 You let our enemies ride over our heads,
we went through fire and water:
but you brought us out into a place of liberty.
12 I will come into your house with burnt-offerings:
and I will pay you my vows,
13 The vows that opened my lips:
that my mouth uttered when I was in trouble.
14 I will offer you burnt-offerings of fattened beasts,
with the sweet smoke of rams:
I will sacrifice a bull and the flesh of goats.
15 Come then and hear, all you that fear God:
and I will tell what he has done for me.
16 I called to him with my mouth:
and his praise was on my tongue.
17 If I had cherished wickedness in my heart:
the Lord would not have heard me.
18 But God has heard me:
he has heeded the voice of my prayer.
19 Praise be to God:
who has not turned back my prayer,
or his steadfast love from me.
