Psalm 92
International Standard VersionEnglish Standard Version
1It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praise to your name, Most High;1It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
2to proclaim your gracious love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,2to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,
3accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre, and the contemplative sound of a harp.3to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.
4Because you made me glad with your awesome deeds, LORD, I will sing for joy at the works of your hands.4For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
5How great are your works, LORD! Your thoughts are unfathomable. 5How great are your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep!
6A stupid man doesn't know, and a fool can't comprehend this:6The stupid man cannot know; the fool cannot understand this:
7Though the wicked sprout like grass; and all who practice iniquity flourish, it is they who will be eternally destroyed.7that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever;
8But you are exalted forever, LORD.8but you, O LORD, are on high forever.
9Look at your enemies, LORD! Look at your enemies, for they are destroyed; everyone who practices iniquity will be scattered. 9For behold, your enemies, O LORD, for behold, your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered.
10You've grown my strength like the horn of a wild ox; I was anointed with fresh oil.10But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; you have poured over me fresh oil.
11My eyes gloated over those who lie in wait for me; when those of evil intent attack me, my ears will hear.11My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
12The righteous will flourish like palm trees; they will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.12The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13Planted in the LORD's Temple, they will flourish in the courtyard of our God.13They are planted in the house of the LORD; they flourish in the courts of our God.
14They will still bear fruit even in old age; they will be luxuriant and green.14They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green,
15They will proclaim: "The LORD is upright; my rock, in whom there is no injustice."15to declare that the LORD is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
