Bible: Ps 92

Psalm 92 1 

92:1 A psalm; a song for the Sabbath day.

It is fitting 2  to thank the Lord,

and to sing praises to your name, O sovereign One! 3 

92:2 It is fitting 4  to proclaim your loyal love in the morning,

and your faithfulness during the night,

92:3 to the accompaniment of a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre,

to the accompaniment of the meditative tone of the harp.

92:4 For you, O Lord, have made me happy by your work.

I will sing for joy because of what you have done. 5 

92:5 How great are your works, O Lord!

Your plans are very intricate! 6 

92:6 The spiritually insensitive do not recognize this;

the fool does not understand this. 7 

92:7 When the wicked sprout up like grass,

and all the evildoers glisten, 8 

it is so that they may be annihilated. 9 

92:8 But you, O Lord, reign 10  forever!

92:9 Indeed, 11  look at your enemies, O Lord!

Indeed, 12  look at how your enemies perish!

All the evildoers are scattered!

92:10 You exalt my horn like that of a wild ox. 13 

I am covered 14  with fresh oil.

92:11 I gloat in triumph over those who tried to ambush me; 15 

I hear the defeated cries of the evil foes who attacked me. 16 

92:12 The godly 17  grow like a palm tree;

they grow high like a cedar in Lebanon. 18 

92:13 Planted in the Lord’s house,

they grow in the courts of our God.

92:14 They bear fruit even when they are old;

they are filled with vitality and have many leaves. 19 

92:15 So they proclaim that the Lord, my protector,

is just and never unfair. 20
