Psalm 92

Thanksgiving for Vindication

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath Day.

1

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 dullard cannot know,

the stupid cannot understand this:

7

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 your enemies, O Lord,

for 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

In old age they still produce fruit;

they are always green and full of sap,

15

showing that the Lord is upright;

he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
