Psalms 92

How Great Are Your Works

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.

1 a  It is good to give thanks to the  Lord,
to sing praises to your name, b  O Most High;
2to declare your c  steadfast love in d  the morning,
and your e  faithfulness by f  night,
3to the music of g  the lute and h  the harp,
to the melody of i  the lyre.
4For you, O  Lord, have made me glad by your j  work;
at k  the works of your hands I sing for joy.
5 How l  great are your works, O  Lord!
Your m  thoughts are very n  deep!
6The stupid man cannot know;
the fool cannot understand this:
7that though o  the wicked sprout like grass
and all p  evildoers flourish,
they are doomed to destruction forever;
8but you, O  Lord, are q  on high forever.
9For behold, your enemies, O  Lord,
for behold, your enemies shall perish;
all evildoers shall be r  scattered.
10 But you have exalted my s  horn like that of t  the wild ox;
you have u  poured over me
Compare Syriac; the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
fresh oil.
11My w  eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;
my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
12 x  The righteous flourish like the palm tree
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13They are planted in the house of the  Lord;
they flourish in y  the courts of our God.
14They still bear fruit in old age;
they are ever full of sap and green,
15 z  to declare that the  Lord is upright;
he is my aa  rock, and there is ab  no unrighteousness in him.
