A Psalm, a Song for the sabbath day.

[1] IT is a good thing to give thanks unto Jehovah,

And to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High;

[2] To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning,

And thy faithfulness every night,

[3] With an instrument of ten strings, and with the psaltery;

With a solemn sound upon the harp.

[4] For thou, Jehovah, hast made me glad through thy work:

I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

[5] How great are thy works, O Jehovah!

Thy thoughts are very deep.

[6] A brutish man knoweth not;

Neither doth a fool understand this:

[7] When the wicked spring as the grass,

And when all the workers of iniquity do flourish;

It is that they shall be destroyed for ever.

[8] But thou, O 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 hast thou exalted like the horn of the wild-ox:

I am anointed with fresh oil.

[11] Mine eye also hath seen my desire on mine〖Or, them that lie in wait for me.〗 enemies,

Mine ears have heard my desire of the evil-doers that rise up against me.

[12] The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree:

He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

[13] They are planted in the house of Jehovah;

They shall flourish in the courts of our God.

[14] They shall still bring forth fruit in old age;

They shall be full of sap and green:

[15] To show that Jehovah is upright;

He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
