Psalm 92 English Standard Version

Praise for the LORD's Goodness

92 1  It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 2  to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, 3  to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. 4  For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy. 5  How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep! 6  The stupid man cannot know; the fool cannot understand this:

7  that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever; 8  but you, O Lord, are on high forever. 9  For behold, your enemies, O Lord, for behold, your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered. 10  But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; you have poured over me[1] fresh oil. 11  My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants. 12  The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13  They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God. 14  They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green, 15  to declare that the Lord is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
