Psalms 66Wrench

King David Commands You To Loudly Praise YAH!
1 Praise โญโญโญ ๐Ÿ˜‡, split [the ears of] the whole planet [with shouts of joy] to Elohim!
King David wrote this instrumentally-accompanied strolling-song for presentation by a skilled conductor/arranger.
2 Praise Strike [up the band to] honor [YAH's] name-authority, ๐Ÿ˜‡. [Shake the ground with the] weight of [your improvised] hullaballoos [of praise to] him.
thillah = spontaneous clapping โ€˜halalโ€™ (wild, foolish, bright-shining praise-show).
3 Punishment Shout to Elohim, โ€œHow terrifying you are when you act! Your enemies cringe [before] you. Your overwhelming power horrifies the [thugs]!
4 Praise All the earth will [eventually] prostrate [themselves to] you. [Even your worst enemies] come to strike [strings] to [honor] you. [All beings eventually] strike [up the music] to [applaud] your Name-authority.โ€ Selah {Dramatic-Break}.
5 YAH (the Most High Creator) ๐Ÿ˜‡, come and see the feats of Elohim, the breathtaking way[s] he works [among] the children of Adam!
6 Yah's Protection [YAH] turns the sea into dry land, ๐Ÿ˜‡! [We Hebrews] pass through [earth's waters on foot]. There [on the shore, as we watch our enemies' bodies float to the surface,] we shine, [praising] YAH.
7 YAH (the Most High Creator) [YAH] rules [the universe] by his eternal power. His eyes see [everything everyone does] in [every] nation, ๐Ÿ˜‡. He [slams down] all rebels who tower over [downtrodden people]. Selah {Dramatic-Break}.
8 Praise Kneel [to] our Elohim, you people. Yell [out wild spontaneous] praise in [every] ear, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
YAH Purifies Us With Struggles
9 Yah's Protection [YAH] holds our life-breath in [the palm(s) of his hands, ๐Ÿ˜‡]. He never lets our feet slip [into oblivion].
10 Tribulation/Purification/testing Elohim, you keep testing us. You [put us through] trials, like a [metallurgist] assays silver.
11 Bondage [When we sin,] you [let us fall] into [Satan's] net-trap. You lay burdens on our backs.
The world-wide-web is a trap.
12 Tribulation/Purification/testing You let [mean] men ride over our [Hebrew] heads. We trudge through fire. We [swim] through [raging] water. But [after we learn our lesson,] you bring us out into a rich home.
Share Your Food With The Poor At Holy Feasts
13 Community Love Feasts So I keep [dancing] into your sanctuary, bringing ascension-gifts [to feed poor people and priests]. I keep paying you [what] I promise.
14 Agreements (Obligation Of Contract) Every time I get in trouble, my lips utter [promises. I bargain with you] using my mouth.
15 Community Love Feasts [So, to feed needy people at] your [holy feasts,] I keep donating and cooking ascension-gifts. [I keep giving you] fat [animals] including young bulls, goats and rams for smoke-roasting. Selah {Dramatic-Break}.
Yah Answers The Prayers Of Righteous People
16 Missions/Outreach Come and hear, all you [people] who fear Elohim. I'll tell [you] how [YAH sustains] my life-breath, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
17 Praise I cry to [YAH] with my mouth. I lift [his fame] high with my tongue, ๐Ÿ˜‡.
18 Temptation Yet sometimes, ๐Ÿ˜‡, I cherish perversity in my heart. Then Adonai [YHVH] turns his listening ear away from me.
19 Prayer Still, in reality, Elohim [always] hears me, ๐Ÿ˜‡. He bends down [from heaven] to [hear] my praying voice, [even when I've sinned].
20 Our Creator's Love [So] kneel [and adore] Elohim, ๐Ÿ˜‡. He never turns away my prayer[s]. He never [takes] his mercy [away] from me. [So he'll hear you too, no matter what you've done.]
