King James Version

Psalm 92

1It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High:

To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

But thou, Lord, art most high for evermore.

For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.

12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13 Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

15 To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Psalm 92

Psalm 92

A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.

Lord, it is good to praise you.
    Most High God, it is good to make music to honor you.
It is good to sing every morning about your love.
    It is good to sing every night about how faithful you are.
I sing about it to the music of the lyre that has ten strings.
    I sing about it to the music of the harp.

Lord, you make me glad by your deeds.
    I sing for joy about what you have done.
Lord, how great are the things you do!
    How wise your thoughts are!
Here is something that people without sense don’t know.
    Here is what foolish people don’t understand.
Those who are evil spring up like grass.
    Those who do wrong succeed.
    But they will be destroyed forever.

But Lord, you are honored forever.

Lord, your enemies will certainly die.
    All those who do evil will be scattered.
10 You have made me as strong as a wild ox.
    You have poured the finest olive oil on me.
11 I’ve seen my evil enemies destroyed.
    I’ve heard that they have lost the battle.

12 Those who do what is right will grow like a palm tree.
    They will grow strong like a cedar tree in Lebanon.
13 Their roots will be firm in the house of the Lord.
    They will grow strong and healthy in the courtyards of our God.
14 When they get old, they will still bear fruit.
    Like young trees they will stay fresh and strong.
15 They will say to everyone, “The Lord is honest.
    He is my Rock, and there is no evil in him.”
