GOD'S WORD® Translation
1[A psalm; a song; for the day of worship.] It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to make music to praise your name, O Most High.
2It is good to announce your mercy in the morning and your faithfulness in the evening
3on a ten-stringed instrument and a harp and with a melody on a lyre.
4You made me find joy in what you have done, O LORD. I will sing joyfully about the works of your hands.
5How spectacular are your works, O LORD! How very deep are your thoughts!
6A stupid person cannot know and a fool cannot understand
7that wicked people sprout like grass and all troublemakers blossom [like flowers], only to be destroyed forever.
8But you, O LORD, are highly honored forever.
9Now look at your enemies, O LORD. Now look at your enemies. They disappear, and all troublemakers are scattered.
10But you make me as strong as a wild bull, and soothing lotion is poured on me.
11My eyes gloat over those who spy on me. My ears hear [the cries] of evildoers attacking me.
12Righteous people flourish like palm trees and grow tall like the cedars in Lebanon.
13They are planted in the LORD's house. They blossom in our God's courtyards.
14Even when they are old, they still bear fruit. They are always healthy and fresh.
15They make it known that the LORD is decent. He is my rock. He is never unfair.
