Praise for the Lord's Goodness.
A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day.
1 It is (a)good to give thanks to the
And to (b)sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To (c)declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your (d)faithfulness [a]by night,
3 [b]With the (e)ten-stringed lute and [c]with the (f)harp,
[d]With resounding music [e]upon the (g)lyre.
4 For You, O Lord , have made me glad by [f]what You (h)have done,
I will (i)sing for joy at the (j)works of Your hands.
5 How (k)great are Your works, O
Your [g](l)thoughts are very (m)deep.
6 A (n)senseless man has no knowledge,
Nor does a (o)stupid man understand this:
7 That when the wicked (p)sprouted up like grass
And all (q)who did iniquity flourished,
It was only that they might be (r)destroyed forevermore.
8 But You, O Lord , are (s)on high forever.
9 For, behold, Your enemies, O Lord ,
For, behold, (t)Your enemies will perish;
All who do iniquity will be (u)scattered.
10 But You have exalted my (v)horn like that of the wild ox;
I have [h]been (w)anointed with fresh oil.
11 And my eye has (x)looked exultantly upon [i]my foes,
My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.
12 The (y)righteous man will [j]flourish like the palm tree,
He will grow like a (z)cedar in Lebanon.
13 (aa)Planted in the house of the Lord ,
They will flourish (ab)in the courts of our God.
14 They will still [k](ac)yield fruit in old age;
They shall be [l]full of sap and very green,
15 To [m]declare that (ad)the Lord is upright;
He is my (ae)rock, and there is (af)no unrighteousness in Him.
The Majesty of the Lord.
[a]reigns, He is (b)clothed with majesty;
The Lord has (c)clothed and girded Himself with strength;
Indeed, the (d)world is firmly established, it will not be moved.
2 Your (e)throne is established from of old;
You (f)are from everlasting.
3 The (g)floods have lifted up, O
The floods have lifted up their voice,
The floods lift up their pounding waves.
4 More than the sounds of many waters,
Than the mighty breakers of the sea,
The Lord (h)on high is mighty.
5 Your (i)testimonies are fully confirmed;
(j)Holiness befits Your house,
O Lord , [b]forevermore.
