Psalm 92
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

Praise for the LORD’S Goodness.

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath day.

1It is a good and delightful thing to give thanks to the LORD,

To sing praises to Your name, O Most High,

2To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning

And Your faithfulness by night,

3With an instrument of ten strings and with the harp,

With a solemn sound on the lyre.

4For You, O LORD, have made me glad by Your works;

At the works of Your hands I joyfully sing.

5How great are Your works, O LORD!

Your thoughts are very deep [beyond man’s understanding].

6A senseless man [in his crude and uncultivated state] knows nothing,

Nor does a [self-righteous] fool understand this:

7That though the wicked sprout up like grass

And all evildoers flourish,

They will be destroyed forever.

8But You, LORD, are on high forever.

9For behold, Your enemies, O LORD,

For behold, Your enemies will perish;

All who do evil will be scattered.

10But my horn [my emblem of strength and power] You have exalted like that of a wild ox;

I am anointed with fresh oil [for Your service].

11My eye has looked on my foes;

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

12The righteous will flourish like the date palm [long-lived, upright and useful];

They will grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic and stable].

13Planted in the house of the LORD,

They will flourish in the courts of our God.

14[Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age;

They will flourish and be [a]vital and fresh [rich in trust and love and contentment];

15[They are living memorials] to declare that the LORD is upright and faithful [to His promises];

He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

[a] 14 Lit fat and very green.
