13  wIf you turn back your foot from the Sabbath,

and call the Sabbath a delight

and the holy day of the Lord honorable;

if you honor it, not going your own ways,

or seeking xyour own pleasure,2 or talking idly;3

How Great Are Your Works

A Psalm. A Song for the Sabbath.

92  fIt is good to give thanks to the Lord,

to sing praises to your name, gO Most High;

to declare your hsteadfast love in ithe morning,

and your hfaithfulness by inight,

to the music of jthe lute and jthe harp,

to the melody of jthe lyre.

For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your kwork;

at lthe works of your hands I sing for joy.

How mgreat are your works, O Lord!

Your nthoughts are very odeep!

The stupid man cannot know;

the fool cannot understand this:

that though pthe wicked sprout like grass

and all qevildoers flourish,

they are doomed to destruction forever;

but you, O Lord, are ron high forever.

For behold, your enemies, O Lord,

for behold, your enemies shall perish;

all evildoers shall be sscattered.

10  But you have exalted my thorn like that of uthe wild ox;

you have vpoured over me1 fresh oil.

11  My weyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;

my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.

12  xThe righteous flourish like the palm tree

and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

13  They are planted in the house of the Lord;

they flourish in ythe courts of our God.

14  They still bear fruit in old age;

they are ever full of sap and green,

15  zto declare that the Lord is upright;

he is my arock, and there is bno unrighteousness in him.


23  mFrom new moon to new moon,

and from Sabbath to Sabbath,

all flesh shall come to worship before me,

declares the Lord.


The Sabbath

sSix days shall work be done, but on the seventh day is a Sabbath of solemn rest, a holy convocation. You shall do no work. It is a Sabbath to the Lord in all your dwelling places.
