92:2 To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
92:3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
92:4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
92:6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
92:7 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:
92:8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
92:9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
92:11 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.
92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
92:14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
92:15 To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Praise is the business of the Sabbath. (1-6) The wicked shall
perish, but God's people shall be exalted. (7-15)

1-6 It is a privilege that we are admitted to praise the Lord,
and Hope to be accepted in the morning, and every night; not
only On Sabbath days, but every Day; not only in public, but in
private, and in our families. Let us give thanks every morning
for the mercies of the night, and every night for the mercies of
the Day; going out, and coming in, let us Bless God. As He makes
us glad, through the Works of his Providence for us, and of his
Grace in us, and both through the great work of Redemption, let
us hence be encouraged. As there are many who know not the
designs of Providence, nor care to know them, those who through
Grace do So, have the more reason to be thankful. And if distant
views of the great Deliverer So animated believers of old, how
should we abound in Love and praise!

7-15 God sometimes grants prosperity to wicked men in
displeasure; yet they flourish but for a moment. Let us seek for
ourselves the Salvation and Grace of the Gospel, that being
daily anointed By the Holy Spirit, we may behold and share the
Redeemer's Glory. It is from his Grace, By his Word and Spirit,
that believers receive all the virtue that keeps them alive, and
makes them fruitful. Other trees, when old, leave off bearing,
but in God's trees the strength of Grace does not fail with the
strength of nature. The last days of the saints are sometimes
their best days, and their last work their best work:
perseverance is sure evidence of sincerity. And may every
Sabbath, while it shows forth the Divine faithfulness, find our
souls resting more and more upon the Lord our Righteousness.
