It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; 2 to declare Your steadfast love in the morning and Your faithfulness by night, 3 to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. 4 For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your work; at the works of Your hands I sing for joy. 5 How great are Your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep! 6 The stupid man cannot know; the fool cannot understand this: 7 that though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever; 8 but You, O Lord, are on high forever. 9 For behold, Your enemies, O Lord, for behold, Your enemies shall perish; all evildoers shall be scattered. 10 But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; You have poured over me fresh oil. 11 My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants. 12 The righteous flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13 They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God. 14 They still bear fruit in old age; they are ever full of sap and green, 15 to declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
