Psalm of the Day – May 2, 2020 (Psalm 92)

1   It is good to give thanks to the LORD, 
          to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 
2   to declare your steadfast love in the morning, 
          and your faithfulness by night, 
3   to the music of the lute and the harp, 
          to the melody of the lyre. 
4   For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; 
          at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

5   How great are your works, O LORD! 
          Your thoughts are very deep! 
6   The dullard cannot know, 
          the stupid cannot understand this: 
7   though the wicked sprout like grass 
          and all evildoers flourish, 
     they are doomed to destruction forever, 
8        but you, O LORD, are on high forever. 
9   For your enemies, O LORD, 
          for your enemies shall perish; 
          all evildoers shall be scattered.

10  But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; 
          you have poured over me fresh oil. 
11  My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; 
          my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.

12  The righteous flourish like the palm tree, 
          and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 
13  They are planted in the house of the LORD; 
          they flourish in the courts of our God. 
14  In old age they still produce fruit; 
          they are always green and full of sap, 
15  showing that the LORD is upright; 
          he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
