Psalm 92:12-15

12 The righteous will spring up like a palm tree. They will grow strong like a cedar of Lebanon.

13 Those who have been replanted in the Lord's house will spring up in the courtyards of our God.

14 They will bear fruit even when old and gray;they will remain lush and fresh

 15 in order to proclaim:"The Lord is righteous. He's my rock.There's nothing unrighteous in him."

Psalm 49:1-7. Common English Bible (CEB)

1  Listen to this, all you people! Listen closely, all you citizens of the world-

  people of every kind, rich and poor alike!

  My mouth speaks wisdom;  my heart's meditation is full of insight.

  I will pay close attention to a proverb; I will explain my riddle on the lyre.

  Why should I be afraid in times of  trouble, when the wrongdoing of my bullies  engulfs me—

  those people who trust in their fortunes and boast of their fantastic wealth?

  Wealth? It can't save a single person!  It can't pay a life's ransom-price to God.

Psalm 68:1-6

1 Let God rise up; let his enemies scatter; let those who hate him run scared before him!

2 Like smoke is driven away, drive them away! Like wax melting before fire, let the wicked perish before God!

3 But let the righteous be glad and celebrate before God. Let them rejoice with gladness!

4 Sing to God! Sing praises to his name! Exalt the one who rides the clouds! The Lord is his name.Celebrate before him!

5 Father of orphans and defender of  widows is God in his holy habitation.

6 God settles the lonely in their homes; he sets prisoners free with happiness, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

Psalm 9:11-12

11 Sing praises to the Lord, who lives in Zion. Proclaim his mighty acts among all people!

12 Because the one who avenges bloodshed remembers those who suffer; the Lord hasn't forgotten their cries for help.

Psalm 66:10-13

10 But you, God, have tested us you've refined us like silver,

11 trapped us in a net, laid burdens on our backs,

12 let other people run right over our heads— we've been through fire and water. But you brought us out to freedom!

13 So I'll enter your house with entirely burned offerings. I'll keep the promises I made to you.

Psalm 92:1-8

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High;

to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night,

to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.

For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy.

How great are your works, O Lord! Your thoughts are very deep!

The dullard cannot know, the stupid cannot understand this:

though the wicked sprout like grass and all evildoers flourish, they are doomed to destruction forever,

but you, O Lord, are on high forever.

It’s A Sign
