8 Bless our God, you Gentiles, and make the voice of his praise be heard.
9 He has set my soul toward life, and he has granted that my feet may not be shaken.
10 For you, O God, have tested us. You have examined us by fire, just as silver is examined.
11 You have led us into a snare. You have placed tribulations on our back.
12 You have set men over our heads. We have crossed through fire and water. And you have led us out to refreshment.
13 I will enter your house with holocausts. I will repay my vows to you,
14 which my lips discerned and my mouth spoke, in my tribulation.
15 I will offer to you holocausts full of marrow, with the burnt offerings of rams. I will offer to you bulls as well as goats.
16 Draw near and listen, all you who fear God, and I will describe to you how much he has done for my soul.
17 I cried out to him with my mouth, and I extolled him under my breath.
18 If I have seen iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not heed me.
19 And yet, God has heeded me and he has attended to the voice of my supplication.
20 Blessed is God, who has not removed my prayer, nor his mercy, from me.
