Psalm 92

1 A melody. A song for the Saturday.
It is good to give thanks to Jehovah And to sing praises to your name, O Most High,

2 To declare your loyal love in the morning And your faithfulness during the nights,

3 Accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument and a lute, By the melodious sound of a harp.

4 For you have made me rejoice, O Jehovah, because of your deeds; Because of the works of your hands I shout joyfully.

5 How great your works are, O Jehovah! How very deep your thoughts are!

6 No unreasoning man can know them; And no foolish person can understand this:

7 When the wicked sprout like weeds And all the wrongdoers flourish, It is that they may be annihilated forever.

8 But you are exalted forever, O Jehovah.

9 Indeed, look in triumph on your enemies, O Jehovah, Look at how your enemies will perish; All the wrongdoers will be scattered.

10 But you will exalt my strength like that of a wild bull; I will moisten my skin with fresh oil.

11 My eyes will look in triumph on my foes; My ears will hear about the downfall of the evil men who attack me.

12 But the righteous will flourish like a palm tree And grow big like a cedar in Lebʹanon.

13 They are planted in the house of Jehovah; They flourish in the courtyards of our God.

14 Even in old age they will still be thriving; They will remain vigorous and fresh,

15 Declaring that Jehovah is upright. He is my Rock, in whom there is no unrighteousness.
