Chapter 89

PSA.89:1 A Contemplation of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies of the LORD forever; With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.
PSA.89:2 For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.”
PSA.89:3 “I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David:
PSA.89:4 ‘Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations.’” Selah
PSA.89:5 And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O LORD; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the saints.
PSA.89:6 For who in the heavens can be compared to the LORD? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the LORD?
PSA.89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, And to be held in reverence by all those around Him.
PSA.89:8 O LORD God of hosts, Who is mighty like You, O LORD? Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
PSA.89:9 You rule the raging of the sea; When its waves rise, You still them.
PSA.89:10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain; You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm.
PSA.89:11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all its fullness, You have founded them.
PSA.89:12 The north and the south, You have created them; Tabor and Hermon rejoice in Your name.
PSA.89:13 You have a mighty arm; Strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.
PSA.89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Mercy and truth go before Your face.
PSA.89:15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your countenance.
PSA.89:16 In Your name they rejoice all day long, And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
PSA.89:17 For You are the glory of their strength, And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
PSA.89:18 For our shield belongs to the LORD, And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
PSA.89:19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your holy one, And said: “I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people.
PSA.89:20 I have found My servant David; With My holy oil I have anointed him,
PSA.89:21 With whom My hand shall be established; Also My arm shall strengthen him.
PSA.89:22 The enemy shall not outwit him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
PSA.89:23 I will beat down his foes before his face, And plague those who hate him.
PSA.89:24 “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him, And in My name his horn shall be exalted.
PSA.89:25 Also I will set his hand over the sea, And his right hand over the rivers.
PSA.89:26 He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’
PSA.89:27 Also I will make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.
PSA.89:28 My mercy I will keep for him forever, And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
PSA.89:29 His seed also I will make to endure forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.
PSA.89:30 “If his sons forsake My law And do not walk in My judgments,
PSA.89:31 If they break My statutes And do not keep My commandments,
PSA.89:32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
PSA.89:33 Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not utterly take from him, Nor allow My faithfulness to fail.
PSA.89:34 My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
PSA.89:35 Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David:
PSA.89:36 His seed shall endure forever, And his throne as the sun before Me;
PSA.89:37 It shall be established forever like the moon, Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah
PSA.89:38 But You have cast off and abhorred, You have been furious with Your anointed.
PSA.89:39 You have renounced the covenant of Your servant; You have profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
PSA.89:40 You have broken down all his hedges; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
PSA.89:41 All who pass by the way plunder him; He is a reproach to his neighbors.
PSA.89:42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries; You have made all his enemies rejoice.
PSA.89:43 You have also turned back the edge of his sword, And have not sustained him in the battle.
PSA.89:44 You have made his glory cease, And cast his throne down to the ground.
PSA.89:45 The days of his youth You have shortened; You have covered him with shame. Selah
PSA.89:46 How long, LORD? Will You hide Yourself forever? Will Your wrath burn like fire?
PSA.89:47 Remember how short my time is; For what futility have You created all the children of men?
PSA.89:48 What man can live and not see death? Can he deliver his life from the power of the grave? Selah
PSA.89:49 Lord, where are Your former lovingkindnesses, Which You swore to David in Your truth?
PSA.89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of Your servants-How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the many peoples,
PSA.89:51 With which Your enemies have reproached, O LORD, With which they have reproached the footsteps of Your anointed.
PSA.89:52 Blessed be the LORD forevermore! Amen and Amen.
