THE BOOKS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
1: (A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day.) 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 every night,
3: Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
4: For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in 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 as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
8: But thou, 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 an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
11: Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire 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 fat and flourishing;
15: To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.
