1: It is a good thing to give praise to the Lord, and to make melody to your name, O Most High; 2: To make clear your mercy in the morning, and your unchanging faith every night; 3: On a ten-corded instrument, and on an instrument of music with a quiet sound. 4: For you, O Lord, have made me glad through your work; I will have joy in the works of your hands. 5: O Lord, how great are your works! and your thoughts are very deep. 6: A man without sense has no knowledge of this; and a foolish man may not take it in. 7: When the sinners come up like the grass, and all the workers of evil do well for themselves, it is so that their end may be eternal destruction. 8: But you, O Lord, are on high for ever. 9: For see! your haters, O Lord, will be put to death; all the workers of evil will be put to flight; 10: But my horn is lifted up like the horn of the ox: the best oil is flowing on my head. 11: My eyes have seen trouble come on my haters; my ears have news of the fate of the evil-doers who have come up against me. 12: The good man will be like a tall tree in his strength; his growth will be as the wide-stretching trees of Lebanon. 13: Those who are planted in the house of the Lord will come up tall and strong in his gardens. 14: They will give fruit even when they are old; they will be fertile and full of growth; 15: For a sign that the Lord is upright; he is my Rock, there is no deceit in him.
