1 A psalm; a song for the Sabbath day. It is fitting to thank the Lord, and to sing praises to your name, O sovereign One!
2 It is fitting to proclaim your loyal love in the morning, and your faithfulness during the night,
3 to the accompaniment of a ten-stringed instrument and a lyre, to the accompaniment of the meditative tone of the harp.
4 For you, O Lord, have made me happy by your work. I will sing for joy because of what you have done.
7 When the wicked sprout up like grass, and all the evildoers glisten, it is so that they may be annihilated.
9 Indeed, look at your enemies, O Lord! Indeed, look at how your enemies perish! All the evildoers are scattered!
11 I gloat in triumph over those who tried to ambush me; I hear the defeated cries of the evil foes who attacked me.
14 They bear fruit even when they are old; they are filled with vitality and have many leaves.
