A Psalm. A song for the Sabbath Day

Praise and Thanksgiving to God

92 It is good to give thanks to the Lord
    and to sing praise to your name, Most High;
to proclaim your gracious love in the morning
    and your faithfulness at night,
accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre,
    and the contemplative sound of a harp.
Because you made me glad
    with your awesome deeds, Lord,
        I will sing for joy at the works of your hands.

How great are your works, Lord!
    Your thoughts are unfathomable.[a]
A stupid man doesn’t know,
    and a fool can’t comprehend this:
Though the wicked sprout like grass;
    and all who practice iniquity flourish,
        it is they who will be eternally destroyed.
But you are exalted forever, Lord.

Look at your enemies, Lord!
    Look at your enemies, for they are destroyed;
        everyone who practices iniquity will be scattered.[b]
10 You’ve grown my strength[c] like the horn of a wild ox;
    I was anointed with fresh oil.
11 My eyes gloated over those who lie in wait for me;[d]
    when those of evil intent attack me, my ears will hear.

12 The righteous will flourish like palm trees;
    they will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Planted in the Lord’s Temple,
    they will flourish in the courtyard of our God.
14 They will still bear fruit even in old age;[e]
    they will be luxuriant and green.
15 They will proclaim: “The Lord is upright;
    my rock, in whom there is no injustice.”
