89:1 Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the loving-kindness of Yahweh forever: With my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
89:2 For I have said, Mercy will be built up forever; Your faithfulness you will establish in the very heavens.
89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn to David my slave:
89:4 Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations. Selah.
89:5 And the heavens will praise your wonders, O Yahweh; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
89:6 For who in the skies can be compared to Yahweh? Who among the sons of the mighty is like Yahweh,
89:7 A God very terrible in the council of the holy ones, And to be awed above all those who are round about him?
89:8 O Yahweh God of hosts, Who is a mighty one, like you, O Yah? And your faithfulness is round about you.
89:9 You rule the pride of the sea: When its waves arise, you still them.
89:10 You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain; You have scattered your enemies with the arm of your strength.
89:11 The heavens are yours, the earth also is yours: The world and the fullness of it, you have founded them.
89:12 The north and the south, you have created them: Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your name.
89:13 You have a mighty arm; Strong is your hand, and high is your right hand.
89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne: Loving-kindness and truth go before your face.
89:15 Blessed is the people who know the joyful sound: They walk, O Yahweh, in the light of your countenance.
89:16 In your name they rejoice all the day; And in your righteousness they stand.
89:17 For you are the glory of their strength; And in your favor our horn will be exalted.
89:18 For our shield belongs to Yahweh; And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
89:19 Then you spoke in vision to your saints, And said, I have laid help on one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
89:20 I have found David my slave; With my holy oil I have anointed him:
89:21 With whom my hand will be established; My arm also will strengthen him.
89:22 The enemy will not exact from him, Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
89:23 And I will beat down his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him.
89:24 But my faithfulness and my loving-kindness will be with him; And in my name will his horn be exalted.
89:25 I will set his hand also on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.
89:26 He will cry to me, You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.
89:27 I also will make him [my] firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.
89:28 My loving-kindness I will keep for him forevermore; And my covenant will stand fast with him.
89:29 His seed also I will make to endure forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.
89:30 If his sons forsake my law, And don't walk in my ordinances;
89:31 If they break my statutes, And don't keep my commandments;
89:32 Then I will visit their transgression with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
89:33 But my loving-kindness I will not completely take from him, Nor allow my faithfulness to fail.
89:34 My covenant I will not break, Nor alter the thing that has gone out of my lips.
89:35 Once I have sworn by my holiness: I will not lie to David:
89:36 His seed will endure forever, And his throne as the sun before me.
89:37 It will be established forever as the moon, And [as] the faithful witness in the sky. Selah.
89:38 But you have cast off and rejected, You have been furious with your anointed.
89:39 You have abhorred the covenant of your slave: You have profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
89:40 You have broken down all his hedges; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
89:41 All who pass by the way rob him: He has become a reproach to his neighbors.
89:42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries; You have made all his enemies to rejoice.
89:43 Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword, And have not made him to stand in the battle.
89:44 You have made his brightness to cease, And cast his throne down to the ground.
89:45 The days of his youth you have shortened: You have covered him with shame. Selah.
89:46 How long, O Yahweh? Will you hide yourself forever? [How long] will your wrath burn like fire?
89:47 Remember me: How short is my lifetime? For what vanity have you created all the sons of man?
89:48 What [prominent] man is he who will live and not see death, Who will deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.
89:49 Lord, where are your former loving-kindnesses, Which you swore to David in your faithfulness?
89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of your slaves, That I bear in my bosom from all of the many peoples,
89:51 With which your enemies have reproached, O Yahweh, With which they have reproached the footsteps of your anointed.
89:52 Blessed be Yahweh forevermore. Amen, and Amen.
