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
works, and I will rejoice in the works of thine hands.
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
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,
shall flourish in the courts of our God.
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.
