1 It is a good thing to praise the Lord, and to

sing unto thy Name, O most High,

2 To declare thy loving kindness in the

morning, and thy truth in the night,

3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and

upon the viol, with the song upon the harp.

4 For thou Lord, hast made me glad by thy

5 O Lord, how glorious are thy works! and thy

thoughts are very deep.

6 An unwise man knoweth it not, and a fool

doth not understand this,

7 (When the wicked grow as the grass, and all

the workers of wickedness do flourish) that they

shall be destroyed forever.

8 But thou, O Lord, art most High forevermore.

9 For lo, thine enemies, O Lord: for lo, thine

enemies shall perish: all the workers of iniquity shall

be destroyed.

10 But thou shalt exalt mine horn, like the unicorns,

and I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

11 Mine eye also shall see my desire against mine

enemies: and mine ears shall hear my wish against

the wicked, that rise up against me.

12 The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,

and shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13 Such as be planted in the house of the Lord,

14 They shall still bring forth fruit in their age:

they shall be fat and flourishing,

15 To declare that the Lord my rock is righteous,

and that none iniquity is in him.
