Psalms 91

1A Canticle Psalm. On the day of the Sabbath. 2It is good to confess to the Lord and to sing psalms to your name, O Most High: 3to announce your mercy in the morning, and your truth throughout the night, 4upon the ten strings, upon the psaltery, with a canticle, upon stringed instruments. 5For you, O Lord, have delighted me with your doings, and I will exult in the works of your hands. 6How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts have been made exceedingly deep. 7A foolish man will not know these things, and a senseless one will not understand: 8when sinners will have risen up like grass, and when all those who work iniquity will have appeared, that they shall pass away, age after age. 9But you, O Lord, are the Most High for all eternity. 10For behold your enemies, O Lord, for behold your enemies will perish, and all those who work iniquity will be dispersed. 11And my horn will be exalted like that of the single-horned beast, and my old age will be exalted in fruitful mercy. 12And my eye has looked down upon my enemies, and my ear will hear of the malignant rising up against me. 13The just one will flourish like the palm tree. He will be multiplied like the cedar of Lebanon. 14Those planted in the house of the Lord will flourish in the courts of the house of our God. 15They will still be multiplied in a fruitful old age, and they will endure well, 16so that they may announce that the Lord our God is righteous and that there is no iniquity in him.
