Psalm 92. Bonum est confiteri.
From the Book of Divine Worship
- The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Eighteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
- IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, *
and to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most Highest;
- To tell of thy loving-kindness early in the morning, *
and of thy truth in the night season;
- Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the lute; *
upon a loud instrument, and upon the harp.
- For thou, Lord, hast made me glad through thy works; *
and I will rejoice in giving praise for the operations of thy hands.
- O Lord, how glorious are thy works! *
thy thoughts are very deep.
- An unwise man doth not well consider this, *
and a fool doth not understand it.
- When the ungodly are green as the grass, and when all the workers of wickedness do flourish, *
then shall they be destroyed for ever; but thou, Lord, art the Most Highest for evermore.
- For lo, thine enemies, O Lord, lo, thine enemies shall perish; *
and all the workers of wickedness shall be destroyed.
- But my horn shall be exalted like the horn of an unicorn; *
for I am anointed with fresh oil.
- Mine eye also shall see his lust of mine enemies, *
and mine ear shall hear his desire of the wicked that arise up against me.
- The righteous shall flourish like a palm-tree, *
and shall spread abroad like a cedar in Lebanon.
- Such as are planted in the house of the Lord, *
shall flourish in the courts of the house of our God.
- They also shall bring forth more fruit in their age, *
and shall be fat and well-liking;
- That they may show how true the Lord my strength is, *
and that there is no unrighteousness in him.
