Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  A Psalm, a Song. For the sabbath day.

א  מִזְמוֹר שִׁיר לְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת.

2  It is a good thing to give thanks unto Hashem, and to sing praises unto Thy name, O Most High;

ב  טוֹב לְהֹדוֹת לַיהוָה וּלְזַמֵּר לְשִׁמְךָ עֶלְיוֹן.

3  To declare Thy lovingkindness in the morning, and Thy faithfulness in the night seasons,

ג  לְהַגִּיד בַּבֹּקֶר חַסְדֶּךָ וֶאֱמוּנָתְךָ בַּלֵּילוֹת.

4  With an instrument of ten strings, and with the psaltery; with a solemn sound upon the harp.

ד  עֲלֵי עָשׂוֹר וַעֲלֵי נָבֶל עֲלֵי הִגָּיוֹן בְּכִנּוֹר.

5  For Thou, Hashem, hast made me glad through Thy work; I will exult in the works of Thy hands.

ה  כִּי שִׂמַּחְתַּנִי יְהוָה בְּפָעֳלֶךָ בְּמַעֲשֵׂי יָדֶיךָ אֲרַנֵּן.

6  How great are Thy works, O Hashem! Thy thoughts are very deep.

ו  מַה גָּדְלוּ מַעֲשֶׂיךָ יְהוָה מְאֹד עָמְקוּ מַחְשְׁבֹתֶיךָ.

7  A brutish man knoweth not, neither doth a fool understand this.

ז  אִישׁ בַּעַר לֹא יֵדָע וּכְסִיל לֹא יָבִין אֶת זֹאת.

8  When the wicked spring up as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they may be destroyed for ever.

ח  בִּפְרֹחַ רְשָׁעִים כְּמוֹ עֵשֶׂב וַיָּצִיצוּ כָּל פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן לְהִשָּׁמְדָם עֲדֵי עַד.

9  But Thou, O Hashem, art on high for evermore.

ט  וְאַתָּה מָרוֹם לְעֹלָם יְהוָה.

10  For, lo, Thine enemies, O Hashem, for, lo, Thine enemies shall perish: all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

י  כִּי הִנֵּה אֹיְבֶיךָ יְהוָה כִּי הִנֵּה אֹיְבֶיךָ יֹאבֵדוּ יִתְפָּרְדוּ כָּל פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן.

11  But my horn hast Thou exalted like the horn of the wild-ox; I am anointed with rich oil.

יא  וַתָּרֶם כִּרְאֵים קַרְנִי בַּלֹּתִי בְּשֶׁמֶן רַעֲנָן.

12  Mine eye also hath gazed on them that lie in wait for me, mine ears have heard my desire of the evil-doers that rise up against me.

יב  וַתַּבֵּט עֵינִי בְּשׁוּרָי בַּקָּמִים עָלַי מְרֵעִים תִּשְׁמַעְנָה אָזְנָי.

13  The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree; he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

tza-DEEK ka-ta-MAR yif-RAKH k’-E-rez ba-l’-va-NON yis-GEH

יג  צַדִּיק כַּתָּמָר יִפְרָח כְּאֶרֶז בַּלְּבָנוֹן יִשְׂגֶּה.

92:13   The righteous shall flourish like the palm-tree

In this verse, King David compares a righteous person to a palm tree. Just as the date palm produces numerous fruits, the deeds of a righteous person bear fruit. In addition, he enjoys a fruitful reward for his actions in both this world and the next. The fruit of the date palm, in Hebrew ‘tamar,’ is one of the seven species that the Torah lists as being special agricultural products of the Land of Israel (Deuteronomy 8:8). In addition, the date palm has the added distinction of being one of the four species taken on the holiday of ‘Sukkot.’ Since date palms stand tall and straight with fronds of leaves that wave in the wind, the majestic tree was depicted on coins minted by the Maccabees and has always been considered a symbol of victory and strength.

14  Planted in the house of Hashem, they shall flourish in the courts of our God.

יד  שְׁתוּלִים בְּבֵית יְהוָה בְּחַצְרוֹת אֱלֹהֵינוּ יַפְרִיחוּ.

15  They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap and richness;

טו  עוֹד יְנוּבוּן בְּשֵׂיבָה דְּשֵׁנִים וְרַעֲנַנִּים יִהְיוּ.

16  To declare that Hashem is upright, my Rock, in whom there is no unrighteousness.

טז  לְהַגִּיד כִּי יָשָׁר יְהוָה צוּרִי וְלֹא עלתה (עַוְלָתָה) בּוֹ.
