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;
2 to declare your c steadfast love in d the morning,
and your e faithfulness by f night,
3 to the music of g the lute and h the harp,
to the melody of i the lyre.
4 For 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!
6 The stupid man cannot know;
the fool cannot understand this:
7 that though o the wicked sprout like grass
and all p evildoers flourish,
they are doomed to destruction forever;
8 but you, O Lord, are q on high forever.
9 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 uncertainfresh 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.
