 2  Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
.3  For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.
.4  In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.
 5  The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

 10  Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:
 11  Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.
