A psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.
1 It is good to praise * Yahweh,
and Your faithfulness at night, b
and the music of a lyre. c
by what You have done;
I will shout for joy
because of the works of Your hands. d
how profound Your thoughts! e
a fool does not understand this: f
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be eternally destroyed. g
8 But You, Lord, are exalted forever. h
indeed, Your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered. i
like that of a wild ox;
my ears hear evildoers when they attack me. m
and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon. n
they thrive in the courts of our God. o
healthy and green, p
He is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” q
