A psalm or song for the Sabbath day.
1 IT is a good thing to give thanks
Jehovah thee unto:
unto thy Name praises to sing,
o thou most high also.
2 Thy loving kindness to shew forth
within the morning light:
also thy truth, and faithfulness,
to shew forth every night.
3 Upon a ten string’d instrument,
and Psaltery upon:
upon the solemn sounding Harp,
4 For through thy work, o Lord, thou hast
me caused to rejoice:
and in the workings of thy hands
I will triumph with voice.
5 O Lord, how mighty are thy works:
thy thoughts are very deep.
6 The brutish knows not; nor the fool
this in his heart doth keep.
7 When as the wicked do spring up
ev'n like the grass unto,
and all that work iniquity
when as they flourish do:
It’s that they then may be destroy’d
8 But thou Jehovah dost abide
for evermore most high.
9 For lo, thy foes, for lo, o Lord,
thy foes they perish shall:
the workers of iniquity
they shall be scattered all.
10 But like the Unicorns my horn
thou shalt exalt on high:
and with fresh oil in mine old age
anointed be shall I.
11 Also mine eye shall see my wish
upon mine enemyes:
mine ear shall hear of wicked ones,
that up against me rise.
12 Like to the Palme tree flourish shall
he that is righteous:
like to a Cedar he shall grow
that is in Lebanus.
13 They that within Jehovah’s house
are planted stedfastly:
within the Courts of our God they
shall flourish pleasantly.
14 Their fruit they shall in their old age
continue forth to bring:
they shall be fat, yea likewise they
shall still be flourishing:
15 To shew that upright is the Lord:
my refuge strong is he,
also that there is not in him
