Psalm 92

See commentary, Psalms 92-100     |     Bible Dictionary   |   Chronological

The prophet exhorts to praise God,

A Psalm. A song for the Sabbath day.

92:1 It is a good thing to give thanks to Yahweh,
to sing praises to your name, Most High;

92:2 to proclaim your loving kindness in the morning,
and your faithfulness every night,

92:3 with the ten-stringed lute, with the harp,
and with the melody of the lyre.

for his great works;

92:4 For you, Yahweh, have made me glad through your work.
I will triumph in the works of your hands.

92:5 How great are your works, Yahweh!
Your thoughts are very deep.

for his judgments on the wicked;

92:6 A senseless man doesn’t know,
neither does a fool understand this:

92:7 though the wicked spring up as the grass,
and all the evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed forever.

92:8 But you, Yahweh, are on high forevermore.

92:9 For, behold, your enemies, Yahweh,
for, behold, your enemies shall perish.
All the evildoers will be scattered.

and for his goodness to the godly.

92:10 But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox.
I am anointed with fresh oil.

92:11 My eye has also seen my enemies.
My ears have heard of the wicked enemies who rise up against me.

92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree.
He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

92:13 They are planted in Yahweh’s house.
They will flourish in our God’s courts.

92:14 They will still bring forth fruit in old age.
They will be full of sap and green,

92:15 to show that Yahweh is upright.
He is my rock,
and there is no unrighteousness in him.
