92 It is good to ·praise [thank] you, Lord, to ·sing praises to [L make a psalm to the name of] God Most High. 2 It is good to ·tell of [proclaim] your ·love [loyalty] in the morning and of your ·loyalty [faithfulness] at night. 3 It is good to praise you with the ten-stringed lyre and ·with the soft-sounding [melody of the] harp.
4 Lord, you have made me ·happy [rejoice] by what you have done; I will ·sing [shout] for joy about ·what your hands have done [L the works of your hand]. 5 Lord, ·you have done such great things [L how great are your works]! How deep are your thoughts [Is. 55:8; Rom. 11:33–34]! 6 ·Stupid [Senseless; Dull-witted] people don’t know these things, and fools don’t understand. 7 Wicked people ·grow [may sprout] like the grass. Evil people ·seem to do well [may blossom/flourish], but they will be ·destroyed [doomed] forever. 8 But, Lord, you will be ·honored [exalted] forever.
9 Lord, surely your enemies, surely your enemies will ·be destroyed [perish], and all who do evil will be scattered. 10 But you have ·made me as strong as [exalted my horn like; C symbol of strength] an ox. You have poured ·fine [rich; fresh] oils on me [C a gesture of hospitality]. 11 When ·I [L my eyes] looked, I saw my enemies; I heard the cries of those who ·are against me [L rose against me with evil; C he sees and hears the defeat of his enemies].
12 But ·good [righteous] people will ·grow [sprout] like palm trees [1:3; 52:8]; they will ·be tall [grow great] like the cedars of Lebanon [C trees that are strong, majestic, and long-lived]. 13 Like trees planted in the ·Temple [L house] of the Lord, they will ·grow strong [sprout] in the courtyards of our God. 14 When they are old, they will still produce fruit; they will be healthy and ·fresh [green; verdant]. 15 They will ·say [proclaim] that the Lord is ·good [virtuous; full of integrity; upright]. He is my Rock [28:1; 42:9; 62:2; Deut. 32:4], and there is no wrong in him.
