A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day.
1It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
2To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,#every…: Heb. in the nights
3Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.#the harp…: or, the solemn sound with the harp#a solemn…: Heb. Higgaion
4For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
5O Lord, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
6A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
7When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
8But thou, Lord, art most high for evermore.
9For, lo, thine enemies, O Lord, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
11Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
12The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;#flourishing: Heb. green
15To shew that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
