Psalm 92 - Contemporary English Version 1995

Praise to the Lord for His Love and Faithfulness

1. (A psalm and a song for the Sabbath.) It is wonderful to be grateful and to sing your praises, LORD Most High!

2. It is wonderful each morning to tell about your love and at night to announce how faithful you are.

3. I enjoy praising your name to the music of harps,

4. because everything you do makes me happy, and I sing joyful songs.

5. You do great things, LORD. Your thoughts are too deep

6. for an ignorant fool to know or understand.

7. Though the wicked sprout and spread like grass, they will be pulled up by their roots.

8. But you will rule over all of us forever,

9. and your hateful enemies will be scattered and then destroyed.

10. You have given me the strength of a wild ox, and you have chosen me to be your very own.

11. My eyes have seen, and my ears have heard the doom and destruction of my terrible enemies.

12. Good people will prosper like palm trees, and they will grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon.

13. They will take root in your house, LORD God, and they will do well.

14. They will be like trees that stay healthy and fruitful, even when they are old.

15. And they will say about you, "The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock."
