Psalm 92 WYC/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 The psalm of song, in the day of sabbath. It is good to acknowledge to the Lord; and to sing to thy name, thou Highest. (The psalm of the song, on the sabbath day. It is good to give thanks to the Lord; and to sing unto thy name, O Most High.) 1 It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 To show early thy mercy; and thy truth by night. (To declare thy love in the morning; and thy faithfulness every night.) 2 to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,
3 In a psaltery of ten cords; with song in harp. (On a lute with ten strings; and with a song on the harp.) 3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.
4 For thou, Lord, hast delighted me in (the works of) thy making; and I shall make full out joy in the works of thine hands. (For thou, Lord, hast delighted me with thy deeds, or thy acts; and I shall rejoice over the works of thy hands.) 4 For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
5 Lord, thy works be magnified greatly; thy thoughts be made full deep. (Lord, thy works be truly great; thy thoughts be so very deep!) 5 How great are your works, O LORD, how profound your thoughts!
6 An unwise man shall not know; and a fool shall not understand these things. (But this is what the ignorant do not know; and what the foolish do not understand.) 6 The senseless man does not know, fools do not understand,
7 When sinners come forth, as hay; and all they appear, that work wickedness. That they perish into the world of world; (That even though the sinners come forth like hay, or like grass, and that those who do evil prosper; they shall all utterly perish forever.) 7 that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be forever destroyed.
8 forsooth thou, Lord, art the Highest, [into] without end. (But thou, Lord, art the Most High, forever.) 8 But you, O LORD, are exalted forever.
9 For lo! Lord, thine enemies, for lo! thine enemies shall perish; and all they shall be scattered that work wickedness (and all who do evil shall be destroyed). 9 For surely your enemies, O LORD, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.
10 And mine horn shall be raised as an unicorn; and mine eld (age shall be) in plenteous mercy. (But my head shall be raised up, like the horn of a wild ox; and I shall be richly anointed with oil.) 10 You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured upon me.
11 And mine eye despised mine enemies; and when wicked men rise against me, mine ear shall hear (their downfall). (And my eyes shall see my heart's desire for my enemies/And my eyes shall see the defeat of my enemies; and my ears shall hear the downfall of the wicked people who rise up against me.) 11 My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.
12 A just man shall flower as a palm tree; he shall be multiplied as a cedar of Lebanon. (The righteous shall flourish like the palm trees; they shall be multiplied like the cedars of Lebanon.) 12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13 Men planted in the house of the Lord; shall flower in the porches of the house of our God. (Those who be planted in the House of the Lord; shall flourish in the courtyards of the House of our God.) 13 planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14 Yet they shall be multiplied in plenteous eld (age); and they shall be suffering well. (They shall be granted a plentiful old age; and they shall be strong, and vigorous/and they shall be prosperous, and flourishing.) 14 They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,
15 That they tell, that our Lord God is rightful; and no wickedness is in him. (And they shall declare that the Lord our God is righteous; and there is no wickedness in him.) 15 proclaiming, "The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him."
