Psalm 92


How Great Are Your Works



 A PSALM. A SONG FOR THE SABBATH. 


      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 stupid man cannot know; 

      the fool cannot understand this: 

      7 that 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 behold, your enemies, O LORD, 

      for behold, 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 They still bear fruit in old age; 

      they are ever full of sap and green, 

      15 to declare that the LORD is upright; 

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