Psalm 89

God’s Covenant with David

A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite.
1 I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord,* for ever;
   with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.
2 I declare that your steadfast love is established for ever;
   your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.


3 You said, ‘I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
   I have sworn to my servant David:
4 “I will establish your descendants for ever,
   and build your throne for all generations.”
          Selah


19 Then you spoke in a vision to your faithful one, and said:
   ‘I have set the crown* on one who is mighty,
   I have exalted one chosen from the people.
20 I have found my servant David;
   with my holy oil I have anointed him;
21 my hand shall always remain with him;
   my arm also shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him,
   the wicked shall not humble him.
23 I will crush his foes before him
   and strike down those who hate him.
24 My faithfulness and steadfast love shall be with him;
   and in my name his horn shall be exalted.
25 I will set his hand on the sea
   and his right hand on the rivers.
26 He shall cry to me, “You are my Father,
   my God, and the Rock of my salvation!”
