{A Psalm, a Song, for the Sabbath day.}
It is good to give thanks unto Jehovah, and to sing psalms unto thy name, O Most High;
2
To declare thy loving-kindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness in the nights,
3
Upon an instrument of ten strings and upon the lute;
upon the Higgaion with the harp.
4
For thou, Jehovah, hast made me glad through thy work;
I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
5
Jehovah, how great are thy works!
Thy thoughts are very deep:
6
A brutish man knoweth not, neither doth a fool understand it.
7
When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity flourish, it is that they may be destroyed for ever.
8
And thou, Jehovah, art on high for evermore.
9
For lo, thine enemies, O Jehovah, for lo, thine enemies shall perish;
all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
10
But my horn shalt thou exalt like a buffalo's: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
11
And mine eye shall see [its desire] on mine enemies;
mine ears shall hear [it] of the evil-doers that rise up against me.
12
The righteous shall shoot forth like a palm-tree;
he shall grow like a cedar on Lebanon.
13
Those that are planted in the house of Jehovah shall flourish in the courts of our God:
14
They are still vigorous in old age, they are full of sap and green;
15
To shew that Jehovah is upright: [he is] my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
