Psalms 89


89:1 Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies
 of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy
 faithfulness to all generations.
89:2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy
 faithfulness wilt thou establish in the very heavens.
89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn to
 David my servant,
89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne
 to all generations. Selah.
89:5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD; thy
 faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared to the LORD? [who]
 among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the LORD?
89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints,
 and to be had in reverence by all [them that are] about him.
89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who [is] a strong LORD like to thee?
 or to thy faithfulness around thee?
89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when its waves arise,
 thou stillest them.
89:10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain;
 thou hast scattered thy enemies with thy strong arm.
89:11 The heavens [are] thine, the earth also [is] thine: [as
 for] the world, and the fullness of it, thou hast founded them.
89:12 The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and
 Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
89:13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, [and] high is
 thy right hand.
89:14 Justice and judgment [are] the habitation of thy throne:
 mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
89:15 Blessed [are] the people that know the joyful sound: they
 shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
89:16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy
 righteousness shall they be exalted.
89:17 For thou [art] the glory of their strength: and in thy
 favor our horn shall be exalted.
89:18 For the LORD [is] our defense; and the Holy One of Israel
 [is] our king.
89:19 Then thou didst speak in vision to thy holy one, and say,
 I have laid help upon [one that is] mighty; I have exalted
 [one] chosen out of the people.
89:20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I
 anointed him:
89:21 With whom my hand shall be established: my arm also shall
 strengthen him.
89:22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of
 wickedness afflict him.
89:23 And I will beat down his foes before his face, and afflict
 them that hate him.
89:24 But my faithfulness and my mercy [shall be] with him: and
 in my name shall his horn be exalted.
89:25 I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in
 the rivers.
89:26 He shall cry to me, Thou [art] my father, my God, and the
 rock of my salvation.
89:27 Also I will make him [my] first-born, higher than the
 kings of the earth.
89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant
 shall stand fast with him.
89:29 His seed also will I make [to endure] for ever, and his
 throne as the days of heaven.
89:30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my
 judgments;
89:31 If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
89:32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and
 their iniquity with stripes.
89:33 Nevertheless my loving-kindness will I not utterly take
 from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
89:34 My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that
 hath gone out of my lips.
89:35 Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie to
 David.
89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun
 before me.
89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and [as] a
 faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
89:38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth
 with thy anointed.
89:39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast
 profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought
 his strong holds to ruin.
89:41 All that pass by the way plunder him: he is a reproach to
 his neighbors.
89:42 Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou
 hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not
 made him to stand in the battle.
89:44 Thou hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne
 down to the ground.
89:45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened: thou hast
 covered him with shame. Selah.
89:46 How long, LORD, wilt thou hide thyself? for ever? shall
 thy wrath burn like fire?
89:47 Remember how short my time is: why hast thou made all men
 in vain?
89:48 What man [is he that] liveth, and shall not see death?
 shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
89:49 LORD, where [are] thy former loving-kindnesses, [which]
 thou didst swear to David in thy truth?
89:50 Remember, LORD, the reproach of thy servants; [how] I do
 bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty people;
89:51 With which thy enemies have reproached, O LORD; with which
 they have reproached the footsteps of thy anointed
89:52 Blessed [be] the LORD for evermore. Amen and amen.
