A Psalm To Be Sung On The Sabbath

May 26, 2024

It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument, a harp,
and the melody of a lyre.
You thrill me, LORD, with all you have done for me!
I sing for joy because of what you have done.
O LORD, what great works you do!
And how deep are your thoughts.
Unthinking people do not understand them!
No fool can comprehend this:
that although the wicked flourish like weeds,
there is only eternal destruction ahead of them.

Psalms 92:1-6

It is proper to give God all praise, honor and glory. To do so is not a right but a privilege, granted not on the basis of our personal merit but of God’s lovingkindness and faithfulness (Note 1). These terms are elsewhere in God’s Word paired or employed in parallel to underscore God’s unconditional mercy and grace.

All praise, honor, and glory unto God.

Note 1: Lovingkindness (v2) is the Hebrew “chesed”; see description of chesed love in the @whatnow2do post of 5/5/2024 here. See also Psalm 5:7 and Psalm 88:11.
