Psalm 92:1-15

A melody, a song, for the sabbath day. 92  It is good to give thanks to Jehovah*+And to make melody to your name, O Most High;+   To tell in the morning about your loving-kindness+And about your faithfulness during the nights,+   Upon a ten-stringed instrument and upon the lute,+By resounding music on the harp.+   For you have made me rejoice, O Jehovah,* because of your activity;Because of the works of your hands I cry out joyfully.+   How great your works are, O Jehovah!*+Very deep your thoughts are.+   No unreasoning man himself can know [them],+And no one stupid can understand this.+   When the wicked ones sprout as the vegetation+And all the practicers of what is hurtful blossom forth,It is that they may be annihilated forever.+   But you are on high to time indefinite, O Jehovah.*+   For, look! your enemies, O Jehovah,*+For, look! your own enemies will perish;+All the practicers of what is hurtful will be separated from one another.+ 10  But you will exalt my horn like that of a wild bull;*+I shall moisten [myself]* with fresh oil.+ 11  And my eye will look on my foes;*+My ears will hear about the very ones who rise up against me, the evildoers. 12  The righteous himself will blossom forth as a palm tree does;+As a cedar in Lebʹa·non does, he will grow big.+ 13  Those who are planted in the house of Jehovah,+In the courtyards of our God,+ they will blossom forth. 14  They will still keep on thriving during gray-headedness,+Fat and fresh they will continue to be,+ 15  To tell that Jehovah is upright.+[He is] my Rock,+ in whom there is no unrighteousness.+
