1 It is good to give thanks to Jehovah, To sing psalms to thy name, O Most High!
2 To proclaim in the morning thy goodness, And thy truth in the night.
3 Upon the psaltery, and upon the nablum, Upon higgaion with the harp.
4 For thou hast made me glad, O Jehovah! in thy works; In the works of thy hands I will exult.
5 How magnificent are thy works, O Jehovah! Exceeding deep are thy thoughts.
6 The man that is foolish shall not know them, Neither shall he who is void of wisdom understand them.
7 When the wicked flourish as the grass, And all the workers of iniquity spring up, [It is] that they may perish for ever.
8 But thou art exalted for evermore, O Jehovah!
9 For lo! thine enemies, O Jehovah! For lo! thine enemies shall perish; Scattered shall be all the workers of iniquity:
10 But thou shalt exalt my horn like that of the unicorn. I am anointed with fresh oil.
11 And mine eye shall see [ruin] on my oppressors: [Of destruction,] on those who rise up against me -- On those who trouble me hear shall my ears.
12 The righteous as the palm tree shall flourish, As the cedar in Lebanon he shall be multiplied.
13 Planted in the house of Jehovah, In the courts of our God, they shall flourish.
14 Still shall they bud forth in old age; Fat and green shall they be;
15 That they may proclaim that upright is Jehovah, my Rock, And that there is no iniquity in him.
