1It is good to thank the Lord! We sing to praise your name, Most High God. 2We sing in the morning to thank you for your faithful love. We sing at night to say that you are always faithful. 3We make beautiful music with lutes, harps and lyres. 92:3 Lutes, harps and lyres made music when people played on their strings. 4The things that you do, Lord, make me very happy. I sing with joy because of the things that your hands have made! 5Yes, Lord, you have done great things! Your thoughts are more than we can understand! 6Here is something that stupid people do not know. Fools do not understand it. 7 Wicked people may continue to grow, like green grass. Evil people may grow like weeds. But in the end you will destroy them and they will never grow again. 92:7 Grass and weeds grow everywhere! So do bad people. But God will destroy them one day, as they deserve. That will be the end of them. Stupid people may be jealous of wicked people, because they do not understand that God will punish them one day. 8You, Lord, will rule as King for ever! 9Yes, Lord, look at your enemies! Your enemies will all die! Those people who do evil things will all disappear! 10You have made me as strong as a wild bull. You have poured pure olive oil on me. 92:10 The writer may have been a king. The Israelites poured olive oil on a new king to show that God had chosen him as king. 11With my own eyes, I have seen my enemies fall. With my own ears, I have heard them cry out in pain. 12 Righteous people will do well, like a palm tree that makes new leaves. They will become strong, like a tall cedar tree in Lebanon. 13They are like trees that someone has planted in the Lord’s house. They grow well in the yard of our God’s temple. 14When they are old, they will still give fruit! They will always be strong, with fresh, green leaves. 15They will tell everyone, ‘The Lord always does what is right. He is my strong, safe rock. There is nothing bad in him.’ When you go through deep water, I will be with you. When you cross dangerous rivers, you will not drown. When you walk through fire, it will not burn you. The flames will not destroy you.
