Psalm 92

A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day.

King James Version of the Bible
1 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.1

Bible Author

A Psalm [or] Song for the Sabbath day. Many of the Jewish writers think that this psalm was written by the first man Adam, and so the Targum, "a hymn or song which the first man said for the sabbath day." But had it been a composure of his, one would think it should have been placed at the head of this collection of psalms, and before that of Moses, Psalm 90, besides there were no musical instruments then for this psalm to be sung on, as in Psalm 92:3, for they say it was made by him quickly after his creation, and his ejection from paradise; for Jubal was the father of them that handle the harp and organ; nor were there any number of enemies and wicked men to rise up against him, as in Psalm 92:7. Nor was it written by Moses, as others have thought; but rather by David, to whom the Arabic version ascribes it; the musical instruments, the number of enemies, and the mention of the house and courts of the Lord, best agree with his times.2
 

 

Division

I. Praise, the business of the sabbath, is here recommended (v. 1-3).
II. God's works, which gave occasion for the sabbath, are here celebrated as great and unsearchable in general (v. 4-6).
In particular, with reference to the works both of providence and redemption, the psalmist sings unto God both of mercy and judgment, the ruin of sinners and the joy of saints, three times counterchanged.
1. The wicked shall perish (v. 7), but God is eternal (v. 8).
2. God's enemies shall be cut off, but David shall be exalted (v. 9, 10).
3. David's enemies shall be confounded (v. 11), but all the righteous shall be fruitful and flourishing (v. 12-15).
In singing this psalm we must take pleasure in giving to God the glory due to his name, and triumph in his works.

Liturgical Anthem

Psalm 92 is a liturgical anthem celebrating the destruction of evil and the triumph and happiness of God's faithful children. The psalm was inspired by the poet's communion with the Creator on the Sabbath day and his observation of God's power in nature. Tradition says that it was sung by the Levites in the morning at the time of the drink offering, on the offering of the first lamb (see Num. 28:3-9). It is still chanted in the Sabbath service of the modern synagogue.4
