Psalm 91 (Mid-hour of First Hour, Service of Burial of a Priest)
(Psalm 92 – Hebrew Numbering)
It is good to give praise unto the Lord, and chant unto Thy name, O Most High, To proclaim in the morning Thy mercy, and Thy truth by night, on a psaltery of ten strings, with an ode upon the harp.
For Thou hast gladdened me, O Lord, by Thy deeds, and in the works of Thy hands will I rejoice.
How great are Thy works, O Lord, exceeding deep are Thy thoughts.
A mindless man shall not know it, nor shall a stupid man understand it.
When the sinners spring up like grass, and all that work iniquity look loftily down, It is that they may be utterly destroyed unto ages of ages; but Thou art Most High for ever, O Lord.
For lo, Thine enemies, O Lord, for lo, Thine enemies shall perish; and scattered shall be all they that work iniquity.
And lifted high as that of a unicorn shall be my horn, and mine old age shall be strengthened with rich oil.
And mine eye hath looked down upon mine enemies, and mine ear shall hear concerning the wicked that rise up against me.
The righteous man shall flourish like a palm tree, and like a cedar in Lebanon shall he be multiplied.
They that are planted in the house of the Lord, in the courts of our God they shall blossom forth.
They shall still increase in a ripe old age, and happy shall they be to proclaim that upright is the Lord our God, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
