How Great Are Your Works
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.
Ps. 147:1; [Ps. 71:22] It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to your name, #[Gen. 14:19, 20]O Most High;
2to declare your #See Ps. 36:5 steadfast love in #[Ps. 119:147, 148]the morning,
and your #See Ps. 36:5 faithfulness by #[Ps. 119:147, 148]night,
3to the music of #See Ps. 33:2the lute and #See Ps. 33:2the harp,
to the melody of #See Ps. 33:2the lyre.
4For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your #See Ps. 90:16 work;
at #Ps. 8:6the works of your hands I sing for joy.
5How #Ps. 111:2; Rev. 15:3 great are your works, O Lord!
Your #Ps. 40:5; 139:17 thoughts are very #[Rom. 11:33]; See Ps. 36:6deep!
6The stupid man cannot know;
the fool cannot understand this:
7that though #See Job 21:7 the wicked sprout like grass
and all #Ps. 94:4; 125:5evildoers flourish,
they are doomed to destruction forever;
8but you, O Lord, are #Ps. 93:4on high forever.
9For behold, your enemies, O Lord,
for behold, your enemies shall perish;
all evildoers shall be #See Ps. 68:1scattered.
10But you have exalted my #See Ps. 75:10; 1 Sam. 2:1 horn like that of #Num. 23:22 the wild ox;
you have #See Ps. 23:5poured over me#92:10 Compare Syriac; the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain fresh oil.
11My #See Ps. 37:34; 54:7eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;
my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
Ps. 1:3; 52:8; 72:7; Prov. 11:28; [Num. 24:6; Isa. 61:3]; See Hos. 14:5-8 The righteous flourish like the palm tree
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13They are planted in the house of the Lord;
they flourish in #Ps. 100:4; 116:19; 135:2the courts of our God.
14They still bear fruit in old age;
they are ever full of sap and green,
15 # [Ps. 58:11] to declare that the Lord is upright;
he is my #See Ps. 18:2 rock, and there is #See Job 34:10no unrighteousness in him.
