Psalm 92



God's Love And Faithfulness

1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;

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:

1 It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praise to your name, Most High;

1 It is a good and delightful thing to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises [with musical accompaniment] to Your name, O Most High,

2 To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night,

2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

2 to proclaim your gracious love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,

2 To show forth Your loving-kindness in the morning and Your faithfulness by night,

3 With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, With resounding music upon the lyre.

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

3 accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre, and the contemplative sound of a harp.

3 With an instrument of ten strings and with the lute, with a solemn sound upon the lyre.

4 For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.

4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

4 Because you made me glad with your awesome deeds, LORD, I will sing for joy at the works of your hands.

4 For You, O Lord, have made me glad by Your works; at the deeds of Your hands I joyfully sing.

5 How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep.

5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

5 How great are your works, LORD! Your thoughts are unfathomable.

5 How great are Your doings, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep.

6 A senseless man has no knowledge, Nor does a stupid man understand this:

6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

6 A stupid man doesn't know, and a fool can't comprehend this:

6 A man in his rude and uncultivated state knows not, neither does a [self-confident] fool understand this:

7 That when the wicked sprouted up like grass And all who did iniquity flourished, It was only that they might be destroyed forevermore.

7 When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

7 Though the wicked sprout like grass; and all who practice iniquity flourish, it is they who will be eternally destroyed.

7 That though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to be destroyed forever.

8 But You, O LORD, are on high forever.

8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.

8 But you are exalted forever, LORD.

8 But You, Lord, are on high forever.

9 For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD, For, behold, Your enemies will perish; All who do iniquity will be scattered.

9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

9 Look at your enemies, LORD! Look at your enemies, for they are destroyed; everyone who practices iniquity will be scattered.

9 For behold, Your adversaries, O Lord, for behold, Your enemies shall perish; all the evildoers shall be scattered.

10 But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.

10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

10 You've grown my strength like the horn of a wild ox; I was anointed with fresh oil.

10 But my horn (emblem of excessive strength and stately grace) You have exalted like that of a wild ox; I am anointed with fresh oil.

11 And my eye has looked exultantly upon my foes, My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.

11 Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.

11 My eyes gloated over those who lie in wait for me; when those of evil intent attack me, my ears will hear.

11 My eye looks upon those who lie in wait for me; my ears hear the evildoers that rise up against me.

12 The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

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

12 The righteous will flourish like palm trees; they will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

12 The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright, useful, and fruitful]; they shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable, durable, and incorruptible].

13 Planted in the house of the LORD, They will flourish in the courts of our God.

13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

13 Planted in the LORD's Temple, they will flourish in the courtyard of our God.

13 Planted in the house of the Lord, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.

14 They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green,

14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

14 They will still bear fruit even in old age; they will be luxuriant and green.

14 [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment].

15 To declare that the LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.

15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

15 They will proclaim: "The LORD is upright; my rock, in whom there is no injustice."

15 [They are living memorials] to show that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
