Psalm 92

Praise for the Lord’s Goodness.

A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day.

1It is good to give thanks to the Lord
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness [a]by night,
[b]With the ten-stringed lute and [c]with the harp,
[d]With resounding music [e]upon the lyre.
For You, O Lord, have made me glad by [f]what You have done,
I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.

How great are Your works, O Lord!
Your [g]thoughts are very deep.
A senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a stupid man understand this:
That when the wicked sprouted up like grass
And all who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.
But You, O Lord, are on high forever.
For, behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For, behold, Your enemies will perish;
All who do iniquity will be scattered.

10 But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;
I have [h]been anointed with fresh oil.
11 And my eye has looked exultantly upon [i]my foes,
My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.
12 The righteous man will [j]flourish like the palm tree,
He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Planted in the house of the Lord,
They will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still [k]yield fruit in old age;
They shall be [l]full of sap and very green,
15 To [m]declare that the Lord is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
