Psalm 92

A psalm; a song; for the day of worship.

It is good to give thanks to Yahweh,
    to make music to praise your name, O Elyon.
It is good to announce your mercy in the morning
    and your faithfulness in the evening
        on a ten-stringed instrument and a harp
            and with a melody on a lyre.

You made me find joy in what you have done, O Yahweh.
    I will sing joyfully about the works of your hands.
How spectacular are your works, O Yahweh!
    How very deep are your thoughts!

A stupid person cannot know
    and a fool cannot understand
        that wicked people sprout like grass
            and all troublemakers blossom like flowers,
                only to be destroyed forever.

But you, O Yahweh, are highly honored forever.
Now look at your enemies, O Yahweh.
    Now look at your enemies.
        They disappear, and all troublemakers are scattered.

10 But you make me as strong as a wild bull,
    and soothing lotion is poured on me.
11 My eyes gloat over those who spy on me.
    My ears hear the cries of evildoers attacking me.

12 Righteous people flourish like palm trees
    and grow tall like the cedars in Lebanon.
13 They are planted in Yahweh’s house.
    They blossom in Elohim’s courtyards.
14 Even when they are old, they still bear fruit.
    They are always healthy and fresh.
15 They make it known that Yahweh is decent.
    He is my rock.
        He is never unfair.
