[A Psalme or song for the Sabbath day.]
1
It is a good thing to giue thanks vnto the Lord, and to sing praises vnto thy Name, O most High:
2
To shew foorth thy louing kindnesse in the morning: and thy faithfulnesse euery night:
3
Upon an instrument of tenne strings, and vpon the psalterie: vpon the harpe with a solemne sound.
4
For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy worke: I will triumph in the workes of thy hands.
5
O Lord, how great are thy workes!
and thy thoughts are very deepe.
6
A brutish man knoweth not: neither doeth a foole vnderstand this.
7
When the wicked spring as the grasse, and when all the workers of iniquitie doe flourish: it is that they shall be destroyed for euer.
8
But thou, Lord, art most high for euermore.
9
For loe, thine enemies, O Lord, for loe, thine enemies shall perish: all the workers of iniquity shalbe scattred.
10
But my horne shalt thou exalt like the horne of an vnicorne: I shalbe anointed with fresh oyle.
11
Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies: and mine eares shall heare my desire of the wicked that rise vp against me.
12
The righteous shal flourish like the palme tree: hee shall growe like a cedar in Lebanon.
13
Those that be planted in the house of the Lord, shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14
They shal still bring forth fruit in old age: they shalbe fat, & flourishing:
15
To shew that the Lord is vpright: hee is my rocke, and there is no vnrighteousnesse in him.
