Psalm 89:19; 1 Kings 8:16; Isaiah 42:1

19  uOf old you spoke in a vision to your godly one,1 and said:

I have vgranted help to one who is wmighty;

I have exalted one xchosen from the people.


16 fSince the day that I brought my people Israel out of Egypt, I chose no city out of all the tribes of Israel in which to build a house, gthat my name might be there. hBut I chose David to be over my people Israel.


The Lord's Chosen Servant

42  eBehold fmy servant, whom I uphold,

my chosen, gin whom my soul delights;

hI have put my Spirit upon him;

ihe will bring forth justice to the nations.
