I Will Sing of the Steadfast Love of the Lord

A Maskil1 of hEthan the Ezrahite.

89  iI will sing of jthe steadfast love of the Lord, forever;

with my mouth I will make known your kfaithfulness to all generations.

For I said, jSteadfast love will be built up forever;

in the heavens lyou will establish your kfaithfulness.

You have said, I have made ma covenant with my nchosen one;

I have osworn to David my servant:

I will establish your poffspring forever,

and build your qthrone for all generations. Selah

Let rthe heavens praise your swonders, O Lord,

your faithfulness in the assembly of tthe holy ones!


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.

20  yI have found David, my servant;

with my holy oil I have zanointed him,

21  so that my ahand shall be established with him;

my arm also shall strengthen him.

22  The enemy shall not outwit him;

bthe wicked shall not humble him.

23  I will ccrush his foes before him

and strike down those who hate him.

24  My dfaithfulness and my dsteadfast love shall be with him,

and in my name shall his ehorn be exalted.

25  I will set his hand on fthe sea

and his right hand on fthe rivers.

26  He shall cry to me, You are my gFather,

my God, and hthe Rock of my salvation.

27  And I will make him the ifirstborn,

jthe highest of the kings of the earth.

28  My steadfast love I will keep for him forever,

and my kcovenant will stand firm2 for him.

29  I will establish his loffspring forever

and his lthrone as mthe days of the heavens.
