1 It is good to give thanks to Yahweh, And to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most High; 3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon a harp, With resounding music on the lyre.
4 For thou hat made me glad, O Yahweh, in thy doing, In the works of thy hands, will I shout for joy. 5 How great have grown thy works, Yahweh, How very deep are laid thy plans! 6 A man that is brutish, cannot know, And, dullard, cannot discern this: - 7 When the lawless do thrive like grass, And all the workers of iniquity have blossomed, It is that they may be destroyed for ever. 8 But, thou, shalt be on high age-abidingly, O Yahweh. 9 For lo! thine enemies, Yahweh, For lo! thine enemies, shall perish, They shall be scattered - all the workers of iniquity; 10 But thou wilt exalt, as those of the buffalo, my horn, I have been anointed, with fresh oil. 11 So hath mine eye descried them who were lying in wait for me, - Of my wicked assailants, mine ears, shall hear.
12 The righteous, like the palm-tree, shall thrive, Like the cedar in Lebanon, shall he grow; 13 They who are planted in the house of Yahweh, In the courts of our God, shall flourish; 14 Still shall they bear fruit in old age, Vigorous and fresh, shall they be: 15 To declare that upright is Yahweh, My Rock, and no perversity in him.
