1 A 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:
2 To tell in the morning of thy kindness, and of thy faithfulness in the nights.
3 Upon a tenstringed instrument, and upon the psaltery; and with the sweet sound of the harp.
4 For thou hast caused me to rejoice, O Lord, through thy doing: because of the works of thy hands will I triumph.
5 How great are thy works, O Lord! Exceedingly profound are thy thoughts.
6 A brutish man knoweth it not, and a fool cannot understand this.
7 When the wicked spring up like herbs, and when all the workers of wickedness do flourish; it is that they may be destroyed evermore.
8 But thou art exalted to eternity, O Lord!
9 For, lo, thy enemies, O Lord, for, lo, thy enemies shall perish: all the workers of wickedness shall be scattered.
10 But thou exaltest my horn like that of a reem: I am anointed with fresh oil.
11 And my eye looketh on the punishment of those that regard me with envy: of the evildoers that rise up against me my ears shall bear it.
12 The righteous shall spring up like the palmtree: like a cedar in Lebanon shall he grow high.
13 Planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of our God shall they spring up.
14 They shall still flourish in high old age; they shall be vigorous and covered with foliage;
15 To declare that the Lord is upright: he is my rock, and there is no faultiness in him.
