Psalms 92

God’s Love and Faithfulness

1A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.

It is good to praise
Yahweh/Yah: Or The Lord; the personal name of God in Hebrew; "Yah" is the shortened form of the name.
to sing praise to Your name,
Most High: The Hebrew word is Elyon. It is often used with other names of God, such as El (God) or Yahweh (Lord); it is used to refer to God as the supreme being.
Most High, c
2 to declare Your faithful love in the morning
and Your faithfulness at night, d
3 with a ten-stringed harp
and the music of a lyre. e

4 For You have made me rejoice, Lord,
by what You have done;
I will shout for joy
because of the works of Your hands. f
5 How magnificent are Your works, Lord,
how profound Your thoughts! g
6 A stupid person does not know,
a fool does not understand this: h
7 though the wicked sprout like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be eternally destroyed. i
8 But You, Lord, are exalted forever. j
9 For indeed, Lord, Your enemies
indeed, Your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered. k
10 You have lifted up my
horn: A symbol of power based on the strength of animal horns
horn m
like that of a wild ox;
I have been anointed
Syr reads You have anointed me
with oil. o
11 My eyes look down on my enemies;
my ears hear evildoers when they attack me. p

12 The righteous thrive like a palm tree
and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon. q
13 Planted in the house of the Lord,
they thrive in the courts of our God. r
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
healthy and green, s
15 to declare: “The Lord is just;
He is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” t
