1A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath. It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; (Ge 14:19; Ps 71:22; Ps 147:1)2to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, (Ps 36:5; Ps 119:147)3to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. (Ps 33:2)4For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy. (Ps 8:6; Ps 90:16)5How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep! (Ps 36:6; Ps 40:5; Ps 111:2; Ps 139:17; Ro 11:33; Re 15:3)6The stupid man cannot know; the fool cannot understand this:7that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever; (Job 21:7; Ps 94:4; Ps 125:5)8but you, O Lord, are on high forever. (Ps 93:4)9For behold, your enemies, O Lord, for behold, your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered. (Ps 68:1)10But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; you have poured over me fresh oil. (Nu 23:22; 1Sa 2:1; Ps 23:5; Ps 75:10)11My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants. (Ps 37:34; Ps 54:7)12The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. (Nu 24:6; Ps 1:3; Ps 52:8; Ps 72:7; Pr 11:28; Isa 61:3; Ho 14:5)13They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God. (Ps 100:4; Ps 116:19; Ps 135:2)14They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green,15to declare that the Lord is upright; he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. (Job 34:10; Ps 18:2; Ps 58:11)
New International Version
A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.
1It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,2proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,3to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.4For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what your hands have done.5How great are your works, Lord, how profound your thoughts!6Senseless people do not know, fools do not understand,7that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever.8But you, Lord, are forever exalted.9For surely your enemies, Lord, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.10You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured on me.11My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.12The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;13planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.14They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,15proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”
King James Version
1A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:2To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,3Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.4For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.5O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.6A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.7When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:8But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.9For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.10But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.11Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.12The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.13Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.14They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;15To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
New Int. Readers Version
1Lord, it is good to praise you. Most High God, it is good to make music to honor you.2It is good to sing every morning about your love. It is good to sing every night about how faithful you are.3I sing about it to the music of the lyre that has ten strings. I sing about it to the music of the harp.4Lord, you make me glad by what you have done. I sing with joy about the works of your hands.5Lord, how great are the things you do! How wise your thoughts are!6Here is something a man who isn't wise doesn't know. Here is what a foolish person doesn't understand.7Those who are evil spring up like grass. Those who do wrong succeed. But they will be destroyed forever.8But Lord, you are honored forever.9Lord, your enemies will certainly die. All those who do evil will be scattered.10You have made me as strong as a wild ox. You have poured the finest olive oil on me.11I've seen my evil enemies destroyed. I've heard that they have lost the battle.12Those who do what is right will grow like a palm tree. They will grow strong like a cedar tree in Lebanon.13Their roots will be firm in the house of the Lord. They will grow strong and healthy in the courtyards of our God.14When they get old, they will still bear fruit. Like young trees they will stay fresh and strong.15They will say to everyone, “The Lord is honest. He is my Rock. There is no evil in him.”
