Praise to the Lord for His Love and Faithfulness
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath day.
1It is #Ps. 147:1good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2To #Ps. 89:1declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
3#1 Chr. 23:5On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
4For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
5#Ps. 40:5; (Rev. 15:3)O Lord, how great are Your works!
#Ps. 139:17, 18; (Is. 28:29; Rom. 11:33, 34)Your thoughts are very deep.
6#Ps. 73:22A senseless man does not know,
Nor does a fool understand this.
7When #Job 12:6; Ps. 37:1, 2; Jer. 12:1, 2; (Mal. 3:15)the wicked spring up like grass,
And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
It is that they may be destroyed forever.
8#(Ps. 83:18)But You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
9For behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall #Ps. 68:1be scattered.
10But #Ps. 89:17my horn You have exalted like a wild ox;
I have been #Ps. 23:5anointed with fresh oil.
11#Ps. 54:7My eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked
Who rise up against me.
12#Num. 24:6; Ps. 52:8; Jer. 17:8; Hos. 14:5, 6The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
15To declare that the Lord is upright;
#(Deut. 32:4)He is my rock, and #(Rom. 9:14)there is no unrighteousness in Him.
