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.

Ps 92:1-15. A Psalm-song—(see on Ps 30:1, title). The theme: God should be praised for His righteous judgments on the wicked and His care and defense of His people. Such a topic, at all times proper, is specially so for the reflections of the Sabbath day.

1. sing … name—celebrate Thy perfections.

2. in the morning, … every night—diligently and constantly (Ps 42:8).

loving kindness—literally, "mercy."

faithfulness—in fulfilling promises (Ps 89:14).

3. In such a work all proper aid must be used.

with a … sound—or, on Higgaion (see on Ps 9:16), perhaps an instrument of that name, from its sound resembling the muttered sound of meditation, as expressed also by the word. This is joined with the harp.

4. thy work—that is, of providence (Ps 90:16, 17).
