Psalm 92 New Century Version (NCV)

Thanksgiving for God’s Goodness

A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.

92 It is good to praise you, Lord,
    to sing praises to God Most High.
It is good to tell of your love in the morning
    and of your loyalty at night.
It is good to praise you with the ten-stringed lyre
    and with the soft-sounding harp.

Lord, you have made me happy by what you have done;
    I will sing for joy about what your hands have done.
Lord, you have done such great things!
    How deep are your thoughts!
Stupid people don’t know these things,
    and fools don’t understand.
Wicked people grow like the grass.
    Evil people seem to do well,
    but they will be destroyed forever.
But, Lord, you will be honored forever.

Lord, surely your enemies,
    surely your enemies will be destroyed,
    and all who do evil will be scattered.
10 But you have made me as strong as an ox.
    You have poured fine oils on me.
11 When I looked, I saw my enemies;
    I heard the cries of those who are against me.

12 But good people will grow like palm trees;
    they will be tall like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 Like trees planted in the Temple of the Lord,
    they will grow strong in the courtyards of our God.
14 When they are old, they will still produce fruit;
    they will be healthy and fresh.
15 They will say that the Lord is good.
    He is my Rock, and there is no wrong in him.

Psalm 92 New International Version (NIV)

Psalm 92[a]

A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.

It is good to praise the Lord
    and make music to your name, O Most High,
proclaiming your love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
    and the melody of the harp.

For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord;
    I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
How great are your works, Lord,
    how profound your thoughts!
Senseless people do not know,
    fools do not understand,
that though the wicked spring up like grass
    and all evildoers flourish,
    they will be destroyed forever.

But you, Lord, are forever exalted.

For surely your enemies, Lord,
    surely your enemies will perish;
    all evildoers will be scattered.
10 You have exalted my horn[b] like that of a wild ox;
    fine oils have been poured on me.
11 My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries;
    my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.

12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
    they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 planted in the house of the Lord,
    they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit in old age,
    they will stay fresh and green,
15 proclaiming, “The Lord is upright;
    he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.
