Psalm 92 - Amplified Bible

Praise to the Lord for His Love and Faithfulness

1. IT IS a good and delightful thing to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises [with musical accompaniment] to Your name, O Most High,

2. To show forth Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night,

3. With an instrument of ten strings and with the lute, with a solemn sound upon the lyre.

4. For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your works; at the deeds of Your hands I joyfully sing.

5. How great are Your doings, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep.

6. A man in his rude and uncultivated state knows not, neither does a [self-confident] fool understand this:

7. That though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to be destroyed forever.

8. But You, Lord, are on high forever.

9. For behold, Your adversaries, O Lord, for behold, Your enemies shall perish; all the evildoers shall be scattered.

10. But my horn (emblem of excessive strength and stately grace) You have exalted like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil.

11. My eye looks upon those who lie in wait for me; my ears hear the evildoers that rise up against me.

12. The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].

13. Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14. [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment].

15. [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.(1)
