|A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.||We Praise Thee O God!.|
|1||It is good to give thanks to Yahweh, |
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
|2||to declare your steadfast love in the morning, |
and your faithfulness by night,
|3||to the music of the lute and the harp, |
to the melody of the lyre.
|4||For you have made me glad by your work, O Yahweh; |
at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
|5||How great are your works, O Yahweh! |
Your thoughts are very deep!
|6||The dull man cannot know, |
the stupid cannot understand this:
|7||that, though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, |
they are doomed to destruction for ever,
|8||but you, O Yahweh, are on high for ever.|
|9||For, lo, your enemies, O Yahweh, |
for, lo, your enemies shall perish;
all evildoers shall be scattered.
|10||But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; |
you have poured over me fresh oil.
|11||My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies, |
my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.
|12||The righteous flourish like the palm tree, |
and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
|13||They are planted in the house of Yahweh, |
they flourish in the courts of our God.
|14||They still bring forth fruit in old age, |
they are ever full of sap and green,
|15||to show that Yahweh is upright;|
he is my rock, there is no unrighteousness in him.
