Psalm 92


(0) A psalm. A song for Shabbat:

(1) It is good to give thanks to Adonai
and sing praises to your name, ‘Elyon,
(2) to tell in the morning about your grace
and at night about your faithfulness,
(3) to the music of a ten-stringed [harp] and a lute,
with the melody sounding on a lyre.

(4) For, Adonai, what you do makes me happy;
I take joy in what your hands have made.
(5) How great are your deeds, Adonai!
How very deep your thoughts!

(6) Stupid people can’t know,
fools don’t understand,
(7) that when the wicked sprout like grass,
and all who do evil prosper,
it is so that they can be eternally destroyed,
(8) while you, Adonai, are exalted forever.

10 (9) For your enemies, Adonai,
your enemies will perish;
all evildoers will be scattered.
11 (10) But you have given me
the strength of a wild bull;
you anoint me with fresh olive oil.
12 (11) My eyes have gazed with pleasure on my enemies’ ruin,
my ears have delighted in the fall of my foes.

13 (12) The righteous will flourish like a palm tree,
they will grow like a cedar in the L’vanon.
14 (13) Planted in the house of Adonai,
they will flourish in the courtyards of our God.
15 (14) Even in old age they will be vigorous,
still full of sap, still bearing fruit,
16 (15) proclaiming that Adonai is upright,
my Rock, in whom there is no wrong.
