Psalm 92
New American Standard Bible►► 

Praise for the LORD’S Goodness.

A Psalm, a Song for the Sabbath day.

1It is good to give thanks to the LORD

And to sing praises to Your name, Most High;

2To declare Your goodness in the morning

And Your faithfulness by [a]night,

3[b]With the ten-stringed lute and [c]with the harp,

[d]With resounding music on the lyre.

4For You, LORD, have made me joyful by [e]what You have done,

I will sing for joy over the works of Your hands.

5How great are Your works, LORD!

Your [f]thoughts are very deep.

6A stupid person has no knowledge,

Nor does a foolish person understand this:

7When the wicked sprouted up like grass

And all who did injustice flourished,

It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.

8But You, LORD, are on high forever.

9For, behold, Your enemies, LORD,

For, behold, Your enemies will perish;

All who do injustice will be scattered.

10But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;

I have [g]been anointed with fresh oil.

11And my eye has looked at my enemies,

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

12The righteous person will [h]flourish like the palm tree,

He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13Planted in the house of the LORD,

They will flourish in the courtyards of our God.

14They will still [i]yield fruit in advanced age;

They will be [j]full of sap and very green,

15To [k]declare that the LORD is just;

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

[a] 2 Lit nights
[b] 3 Lit Upon
[c] 3 Lit Upon
[d] 3 Lit Upon
[e] 4 Lit Your working
[f] 5 Or purposes
[g] 10 Or become moist
[h] 12 Lit sprout
[i] 14 Or thrive in
[j] 14 Lit fat and
[k] 15 Or show forth
