Psalm 92
God’s Love and Faithfulness
A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.
1It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praise to your name, Most High,#Ps 135:3; 147:1
2to declare your faithful love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,#Ps 59:16; 89:1; Lm 3:22–23
3with a ten-stringed harp#92:3 Or ten-stringed instrument and a harp
and the music of a lyre.#Ps 33:2
4For you have made me rejoice, Lord,
by what you have done;
I will shout for joy
because of the works of your hands.#Ps 40:5; 143:5
5How magnificent are your works, Lord,
how profound your thoughts!#Ps 139:17; Is 55:8–9
6A stupid person does not know,
a fool does not understand this:#Ps 73:22
7though the wicked sprout like grass#Ps 103:15–16; Is 37:27; 40:6–7
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be eternally destroyed.#Ps 37:1–2; 73:12–20; 90:5–6; Mal 4:1; Jms 1:10–11
8But you, Lord, are exalted forever.#Ps 93:4
9For indeed, Lord, your enemies —
indeed, your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.#Ps 37:20; 68:1
10You have lifted up my horn#Ps 89:17,24; 112:9
like that of a wild ox;
I have been anointed#92:10 Syr reads you have anointed me with the finest oil.#Ps 45:7
11My eyes look at my enemies;
when evildoers rise against me,
my ears hear them.#Ps 37:34; 54:7
12The righteous thrive like a palm tree
and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon.#Ps 1:3; Is 61:3; Jr 17:8
13Planted in the house of the Lord,
they thrive in the courts of our God.#Is 60:21
14They will still bear fruit in old age,
healthy and green,#Is 37:31; 46:4
15to declare, “The Lord is just;
he is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in him.”#Dt 32:4; Ps 18:2; 94:22
