93.1
PSALMS

10There shall no evil befall thee,
Neither shall any plague come nigh thy tent.
 
11For He will give His angels charge over thee,
To keep thee in all thy ways.
12They shall bear thee upon their hands,
Lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and asp;
The young lion and the serpent shalt thou trample under feet.
 
14'Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he hath known My name.
15He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him, and bring him to honour.
16With long life will I satisfy him,
And make Him to behold My salvation.'


92 A Psalm, a Song. For the sabbath day.


2It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord,
And to sing praises unto Thy name, O Most High;
3To declare Thy lovingkindness in the morning,
And Thy faithfulness in the night seasons,
4With an instrument of ten strings, and with the psaltery;
With a solemn sound upon the harp.
 
5For Thou, Lord, hast made me glad through Thy work;
I will exult in the works of Thy hands.
6How great are Thy works, O Lord!
Thy thoughts are very deep.
7A brutish man knoweth not,
Neither doth a fool understand this.
8When the wicked spring up as the grass,
And when all the workers of iniquity do flourish;
It is that they may be destroyed for ever.
 
9But Thou, O Lord, art on high for evermore.
10For, lo, Thine enemies, O Lord,
For, lo, Thine enemies shall perish:
All the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
11But my horn hast Thou exalted like the horn of the wild-ox;
I am anointed with rich oil.
12Mine eye also hath gazed on them that lie in wait for me,
Mine ears have heard my desire of the evil-doers that rise up against me.
 
13The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree;
He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
14Planted in the house of the Lord,
They shall flourish in the courts of our God.
15They shall still bring forth fruit in old age;
They shall be full of sap and richness;
16To declare that the Lord is upright,
My Rock, in whom there is no unrighteousness.


93The Lord reigneth; He is clothed in majesty;
The Lord is clothed, He hath girded Himself with strength;
