THE *BOOK OF
Psalm 92 ©
The prophet teaches all men to praise God by reason of His great works, and because of His justice against the wicked and goodness to the godly.
A1 Psalm or Song 2for the sabbath day.
IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy 3faithfulness 4every night,
Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp 5with a solemn sound.
For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are 6very deep.
A 7brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand 8this.
When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
9But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
But my 10horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of 11an unicorn: 12I shall be anointed with 13fresh oil.
14Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and 15mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
The righteousa shall flourish like 16the palm tree: he shall grow likeb a cedar in Lebanon.
17Those that be planted in the house of the LORD 18shall flourish in the courts of our God.
They shall still bring forth fruit in 19old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
