Praise to the Lord For His Love and Faithfulness
A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath Day.
1 It is agood to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2 To bdeclare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
3 cOn an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
4 For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands.
5 dO Lord, how great are Your works!
eYour thoughts are very deep.
6 fA senseless man does not know,
Nor does a fool understand this.
7 When gthe wicked 1spring up like grass,
And when all the workers of iniquity flourish,
It is that they may be destroyed forever.
8 hBut You, Lord, are on high forevermore.
9 For behold, Your enemies, O Lord,
For behold, Your enemies shall perish;
All the workers of iniquity shall ibe scattered.
10 But jmy 2horn You have exalted like a wild ox;
I have been kanointed with fresh oil.
11 lMy eye also has seen my desire on my enemies;
My ears hear my desire on the wicked
Who rise up against me.
12 mThe righteous shall flourish like a palm tree,
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 Those who are planted in the house of the Lord
Shall flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be 3fresh and 4flourishing,
15 To declare that the Lord is upright;
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
