ContextHow Great Are Your Works
1IT IS A GOOD THING TO GIVE THANKS UNTO THE LORD, AND TO SING PRAISES UNTO THY NAME, O MOST HIGH: 2To show forth your loving kindness in the morning, and your faithfulness every night, 3On an instrument of ten strings, and on the psaltery; on the harp with a solemn sound. 4For you, LORD, have made me glad through your work: I will triumph in the works of your hands. 5O LORD, how great are your works! and your thoughts are very deep. 6A brutish man knows not; neither does a fool understand this. 7When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever: 8But you, LORD, are most high for ever more. 9For, see, your enemies, O LORD, for, see, your enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered. 10But my horn shall you exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil. 11My eye also shall see my desire on my enemies, and my ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me. 12The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; 15To show that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
