Psalms - Chapter 92 | English Standard Version

  • 1. A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath. It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
  • 2. to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,
  • 3. to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.
  • 4. For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
  • 5. How great are your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep!
  • 6. The stupid man cannot know; the fool cannot understand this:
  • 7. that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever;
  • 8. but you, O LORD, are on high forever.
  • 9. For behold, your enemies, O LORD, for behold, your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered.
  • 10. But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; you have poured over me fresh oil.
  • 11. My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
  • 12. 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 the courts of our God.
  • 14. They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green,
  • 15. to declare that the LORD is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
