1It is good to give thanks to the LORD And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning And Your faithfulness by night,
3With the ten-stringed lute and with the harp, With resounding music upon the lyre.
4For You, O LORD, have made me glad by what You have done, I will sing for joy at the works of Your hands.
5How great are Your works, O LORD! Your thoughts are very deep.
6A senseless man has no knowledge, Nor does a stupid man understand this:
7That when the wicked sprouted up like grass And all who did iniquity flourished, It [was only] that they might be destroyed forevermore.
8But You, O LORD, are on high forever.
9For, behold, Your enemies, O LORD, For, behold, Your enemies will perish; All who do iniquity will be scattered.
10But You have exalted my horn like [that of] the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.
11And my eye has looked [exultantly] upon my foes, My ears hear of the evildoers who rise up against me.
12The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13Planted in the house of the LORD, They will flourish in the courts of our God.
14They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green,
15To declare that the LORD is upright; [He is] my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
