Psalms 92

How Great Are Your Works

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.

a It is good to give thanks to the  Lord,
to sing praises to your name, b O Most High;
to declare your c steadfast love in d the morning,
and your e faithfulness by f night,
to the music of g the lute and h the harp,
to the melody of i the lyre.
For you, O  Lord, have made me glad by your j work;
at k the works of your hands I sing for joy.
How l great are your works, O  Lord!
Your m thoughts are very n deep!
The stupid man cannot know;
the fool cannot understand this:
that though o the wicked sprout like grass
and all p evildoers flourish,
they are doomed to destruction forever;
but you, O  Lord, are q on high forever.
For 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.
11 My 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.
13 They are planted in the house of the  Lord;
they flourish in y the courts of our God.
14 They 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.
