Praise for the Lord’s Goodness.

A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day.

1 It is agood to give thanks to the Lord

And to bsing praises to Your name, O Most High;

2 To adeclare Your lovingkindness in the morning

And Your bfaithfulness 1by night,

3 1With the aten-stringed lute and 1with the aharp,

1With resounding music 2upon the alyre.

4 For You, O Lord, have made me glad by 1what You ahave done,

I will bsing for joy at the cworks of Your hands.

5 How agreat are Your works, O Lord!

Your 1bthoughts are very cdeep.

6 A asenseless man has no knowledge,

Nor does a astupid man understand this:

7 That when the wicked asprouted up like grass

And all bwho did iniquity flourished,

It was only that they might be cdestroyed forevermore.

8 But You, O Lord, are aon high forever.

9 For, behold, Your enemies, O Lord,

For, behold, aYour enemies will perish;

All who do iniquity will be bscattered.

10 But You have exalted my ahorn like that of the wild ox;

I have 1been banointed with fresh oil.

11 And my eye has alooked exultantly upon 1my foes,

My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.

12 The arighteous man will 1flourish like the palm tree,

He will grow like a bcedar in Lebanon.

13 aPlanted in the house of the Lord,

They will flourish bin the courts of our God.

14 They will still 1ayield fruit in old age;

They shall be 2full of sap and very green,

15 To 1declare that athe Lord is upright;

He is my brock, and there is cno unrighteousness in Him.


About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
