|Praise for Jehovahs Goodness|
|A Psalm, a Song for the sabbath day.|
| ||IT is a good thing to give thanks unto Jehovah,|
And to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High;
| ||To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning,|
And thy faithfulness every night,
| ||With an instrument of ten strings, and with the psaltery;|
With a solemn sound upon the harp.
| ||For thou, Jehovah, hast made me glad through thy work:|
I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
| ||How great are thy works, O Jehovah!|
Thy thoughts are very deep.
| ||A brutish man knoweth not;|
Neither doth a fool understand this:
| ||When the wicked spring as the grass,|
And when all the workers of iniquity do flourish;
It is that they shall be destroyed for ever.
| ||But thou, O Jehovah, art on high for evermore.|
| ||For, lo, thine enemies, O Jehovah,|
For, lo, thine enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
| ||But my horn hast thou exalted like the horn of the wild-ox:|
I am anointed with fresh oil.
| ||Mine eye also hath seen my desire on mine 1 enemies,|
Mine ears have heard my desire of the evil-doers that rise up against me.
| ||The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree:|
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
| ||They are planted in the house of Jehovah;|
They shall flourish in the courts of our God.
| ||They shall still bring forth fruit in old age;|
They shall be full of sap and green:
| ||To show that Jehovah is upright;|
He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
