Praise for the LORD'S Goodness.

A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day.

1 It is 1good to give thanks to the LORD And to 2sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To 3declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your 4faithfulness by night,
3 With the 5ten-stringed lute and with the 6harp, With resounding music upon the 7lyre.
4 For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You 8have done, I will 9sing for joy at the 10works of Your hands.
5 How 11great are Your works, O LORD! Your 12thoughts are very 13deep.
7 That when the wicked 16sprouted up like grass And all 17who did iniquity flourished, It was only that they might be 18destroyed forevermore *.
8 But You, O LORD, are 19on high forever.
9 For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD, For, behold, 20Your enemies will perish; All who do iniquity will be 21scattered.
10 But You have exalted my 22horn like that of the wild ox; I have been 23anointed with fresh oil.
11 And my eye has 24looked exultantly upon my foes, My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.
12 The 25righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a 26cedar in Lebanon.
13 27Planted in the house of the LORD, They will flourish 28in the courts of our God.
14 They will still 29yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green,
15 To declare that 30the LORD is upright; He is my 31rock, and there is 32no unrighteousness in Him.
