A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath Day.
1 It is agood to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To bdeclare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
3 cOn an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
5 dO Lord, how great are Your works!
eYour thoughts are very deep.
6 fA senseless man does not know,
Nor does a fool understand this.
And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
It is that they may be destroyed forever.
8 hBut You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall ibe scattered.
I have been kanointed with fresh oil.
11 lMy eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked
Who rise up against me.
12 mThe righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
