1 O come, let us sing unto HaShem; let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, let us shout for joy unto Him with psalms.
3 For HaShem is a great G-d, and a great King above all gods;
4 In whose hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are His also.
5 The sea is His, and He made it; and His hands formed the dry land.
6 O come, let us bow down and bend the knee; let us kneel before HaShem our Maker;
7 For He is our G-d, and we are the people of His pasture, and the flock of His hand. To-day, if ye would but hearken to His voice!
8 'Harden not your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness;
9 When your fathers tried Me, proved Me, even though they saw My work.
10 For forty years was I wearied with that generation, and said: It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known My ways;
11 Wherefore I swore in My wrath, that they should not enter into My rest.'
