The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Book of Psalms


It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
    2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness at night,
    3 With a lyre of ten strings, and with the harp; with the melody of the harp.
    4 For thou, O LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will sing with joy at the works of thy hands.
    5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
    6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
    7 When the wicked spring up as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
    8 But thou, O LORD, art most high for evermore.
    9 For lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
    10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of a wild ox: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
    11 Mine eye also shall see the destruction of mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear the cries of the wicked that rise up against me.
    12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
    13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
    14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing;
    15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
