Psalms 92

1

A PSALM. A SONG FOR THE SABBATH. It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

2

to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,

3

to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.

4

For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

5

How great are your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep!

6

The stupid man cannot know; the fool cannot understand this:

7

that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever;

8

but you, O LORD, are on high forever.

9

For behold, your enemies, O LORD, for behold, your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered.

10

But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; you have poured over me fresh oil.

11

My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.

12

The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13

They are planted in the house of the LORD; they flourish in the courts of our God.

14

They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green,

15

to declare that the LORD is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
