89:1 <Maschil. Of Ethan the Ezrahite.> My song will be of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make his faith clear to all generations.

89:2 For you have said, Mercy will be made strong for ever; my faith will be unchanging in the heavens.

89:3 I have made an agreement with the man of my selection, I have made an oath to David my servant;

89:4 I will make your seed go on for ever, your kingdom will be strong through all generations. (Selah.)

89:5 In heaven let them give praise for your wonders, O Lord; and your unchanging faith among the saints.

89:6 For who is there in the heavens in comparison with the Lord? who is like the Lord among the sons of the gods?

89:7 God is greatly to be feared among the saints, and to be honoured over all those who are about him.

89:8 O Lord God of armies, who is strong like you, O Jah? and your unchanging faith is round about you.

89:9 You have rule over the sea in storm; when its waves are troubled, you make them calm.

89:10 Rahab was crushed by you like one wounded to death; with your strong arm you put to flight all your haters.

89:11 Yours are the heavens, and the earth is yours; you have made the world, and everything which is in it.

89:12 You have made the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon are sounding with joy at your name.

89:13 Yours is an arm of power; strong is your hand and high your right hand.

89:14 The seat of your kingdom is resting on righteousness and right judging: mercy and good faith come before your face.

89:15 Happy are the people who have knowledge of the holy cry: the light of your face, O Lord, will be shining on their way.

89:16 In your name will they have joy all the day: in your righteousness will they be lifted up.

89:17 For you are the glory of their strength; in your pleasure will our horn be lifted up.

89:18 For our breastplate is the Lord; and our king is the Holy One of Israel's.

89:19 Then your voice came to your holy one in a vision, saying, I have put the crown on a strong one, lifting up one taken from among the people.

89:20 I have made discovery of David my servant; I have put my holy oil on his head.

89:21 My hand will be his support; my arm will give him strength.

89:22 The deceit of those who are against him will not overcome him; he will not be troubled by the sons of evil.

89:23 I will have those who are against him broken before his face, and his haters will be crushed under my blows.

89:24 But my faith and my mercy will be with him; and in my name will his horn be lifted up.

89:25 I will put his hand in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

89:26 He will say to me, You are my father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.

89:27 And I will make him the first of my sons, most high over the kings of the earth.

89:28 I will keep my mercy for him for ever; my agreement with him will not be changed.

89:29 His seed will keep their place for ever; his kingdom will be eternal, like the heavens.

89:30 If his children give up my law, and are not ruled by my decisions;

89:31 If my rules are broken, and my orders are not kept;

89:32 Then I will send punishment on them for their sin; my rod will be the reward of their evil-doing.

89:33 But I will not take away my mercy from him, and will not be false to my faith.

89:34 I will be true to my agreement; the things which have gone out of my lips will not be changed.

89:35 I have made an oath once by my holy name, that I will not be false to David.

89:36 His seed will not come to an end for ever; the seat of his kingdom will be like the sun before me.

89:37 It will be fixed for ever like the moon; and the witness in heaven is true. (Selah.)

89:38 But you have put him away in disgust; you have been angry with the king of your selection.

89:39 You have made your agreement with your servant of no effect: you have had no respect for his crown, it has come down even to the earth.

89:40 All his walls are broken down; you have given his strong towers to destruction.

89:41 All those who come by take away his goods; he is laughed at by his neighbours.

89:42 You have given power to the right hand of his haters; you have made glad all those who are against him.

89:43 His sword is turned back; you have not been his support in the fight.

89:44 You have put an end to his glory: the seat of his kingdom has been levelled to the earth.

89:45 You have made him old before his time; he is covered with shame. (Selah.)

89:46 How long, O Lord, will you Keep yourself for ever from our eyes? how long will your wrath be burning like fire?

89:47 See how short my time is; why have you made all men for no purpose?

89:48 What man now living will not see death? will he be able to keep back his soul from the underworld? (Selah.)

89:49 Lord, where are your earlier mercies? where is the oath which you made to David in unchanging faith?

89:50 Keep in mind, O Lord, the shame of your servants, and how the bitter words of all the people have come into my heart;

89:51 The bitter words of your haters, O Lord, shaming the footsteps of your king.

89:52 Let the Lord be praised for ever. So be it, So be it.
