This psalm is a song written for use on the Sabbath, the day for rest and worship (Exodus 20:8-11; Deuteronomy 5:12-15). It celebrates God’s goodness and righteousness.
Today’s Key Verse: Psalm 92:1
How good it is to give thanks to you, O LORD, to sing in your honor, O Most High God.
This psalm, in addition to being a song of praise, is also written in the wisdom tradition. Reread verses 5-8 and 12-15. How are the wicked described? What is their fate? How are the righteous described? What does it mean to “flourish”? What does verse 15 affirm? Many of the psalms were intended to be sung as part of the worship in the Temple in Jerusalem. How are psalms used in your community of faith?
Most High God, I proclaim your constant love every morning and your faithfulness every night. With you, O God, I flourish like a palm tree, rooted in you and growing strong in faith. I sing your praises, and with a thankful heart I declare your goodness to me. Amen.
