Chapter 92

1

<A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.>\

2

\92:1\It is a good thing to give praise to the Lord, and to make melody to your name, O Most High;

3

\92:2\To make clear your mercy in the morning, and your unchanging faith every night;

4

\92:3\On a ten-corded instrument, and on an instrument of music with a quiet sound.

5

\92:4\For you, O Lord, have made me glad through your work; I will have joy in the works of your hands.

6

\92:5\O Lord, how great are your works! and your thoughts are very deep.

7

\92:6\A man without sense has no knowledge of this; and a foolish man may not take it in.

8

\92:7\When the sinners come up like the grass, and all the workers of evil do well for themselves, it is so that their end may be eternal destruction.

9

\92:8\But you, O Lord, are on high for ever.

10

\92:9\For see! your haters, O Lord, will be put to death; all the workers of evil will be put to flight;

11

\92:10\But my horn is lifted up like the horn of the ox: the best oil is flowing on my head.

12

\92:11\My eyes have seen trouble come on my haters; my ears have news of the fate of the evil-doers who have come up against me.

13

\92:12\The good man will be like a tall tree in his strength; his growth will be as the wide-stretching trees of Lebanon.

14

\92:13\Those who are planted in the house of the Lord will come up tall and strong in his gardens.

15

\92:14\They will give fruit even when they are old; they will be fertile and full of growth;

16

\92:15\For a sign that the Lord is upright; he is my Rock, there is no deceit in him.
