Psalm 92
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Psalm. A song for the Sabbath Day

Praise and Thanksgiving to God

1It is good to give thanks to the LORD

and to sing praise to your name, Most High;

2to proclaim your gracious love in the morning

and your faithfulness at night,

3accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre,

and the contemplative sound of a harp.

4Because you made me glad

with your awesome deeds, LORD,

I will sing for joy at the works of your hands.

5How great are your works, LORD!

Your thoughts are unfathomable.a

6A stupid man doesn’t know,

and a fool can’t comprehend this:

7Though the wicked sprout like grass;

and all who practice iniquity flourish,

it is they who will be eternally destroyed.

8But you are exalted forever, LORD.

9Look at your enemies, LORD!

Look at your enemies, for they are destroyed;

everyone who practices iniquity will be scattered.b

10You’ve grown my strengthc like the horn of a wild ox;

I was anointed with fresh oil.

11My eyes gloated over those who lie in wait for me;d

when those of evil intent attack me, my ears will hear.

12The righteous will flourish like palm trees;

they will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13Planted in the LORD’s Temple,

they will flourish in the courtyard of our God.

14They will still bear fruit even in old age;e

they will be luxuriant and green.

15They will proclaim: “The LORD is upright;

my rock, in whom there is no injustice.”

a 92:5 Lit. very deep
b 92:9 Lit. divided; or separated
c 92:10 Lit. horn
d 92:11 The Heb. lacks for me
e 92:14 Lit. Even with gray hair
