A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.
1 It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.
4 For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord;
I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
5 How great are your works, Lord,
how profound your thoughts!
6 Senseless people do not know,
fools do not understand,
7 that though the wicked spring up like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed for ever.
8 But you, Lord, are for ever exalted.
9 For surely your enemies, Lord,
surely your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.
10 You have exalted my horn[b] like that of a wild ox;
fine oils have been poured on me.
11 My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries;
my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.
12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 planted in the house of the Lord,
they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green,
15 proclaiming, ‘The Lord is upright;
he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.’
Praise for the Lord’s Goodness.
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath day.
1It is a good and delightful thing to give thanks to the Lord,
To sing praises to Your name, O Most High,
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night,
With an instrument of ten strings and with the harp,
With a solemn sound on the lyre.
For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your works;
At the works of Your hands I joyfully sing.
How great are Your works, O Lord!
Your thoughts are very deep [beyond man’s understanding].
A senseless man [in his crude and uncultivated state] knows nothing,
Nor does a [self-righteous] fool understand this:
That though the wicked sprout up like grass
And all evildoers flourish,
They will be destroyed forever.
But You, Lord, are on high forever.
For behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For behold, Your enemies will perish;
All who do evil will be scattered.
But my horn [my emblem of strength and power] You have exalted like that of a wild ox;
I am anointed with fresh oil [for Your service].
My eye has looked on my foes;
My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.
The righteous will flourish like the date palm [long-lived, upright and useful];
They will grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic and stable].
Planted in the house of the Lord,
They will flourish in the courts of our God.
[Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age;
They will flourish and be [a]vital and fresh [rich in trust and love and contentment];
[They are living memorials] to declare that the Lord is upright and faithful [to His promises];
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
