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


5 Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord,
   your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones.
6 For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord?
   Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord,
7 a God feared in the council of the holy ones,
   great and awesome* above all that are around him?
8Lord God of hosts,
   who is as mighty as you, O Lord?
   Your faithfulness surrounds you.
9 You rule the raging of the sea;
   when its waves rise, you still them.
10 You crushed Rahab like a carcass;
   you scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
11 The heavens are yours, the earth also is yours;
   the world and all that is in it—you have founded them.
12 The north and the south*—you created them;
   Tabor and Hermon joyously praise your name.
13 You have a mighty arm;
   strong is your hand, high your right hand.
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
   steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.
15 Happy are the people who know the festal shout,
   who walk, O Lord, in the light of your countenance;
16 they exult in your name all day long,
   and extol* your righteousness.
17 For you are the glory of their strength;
   by your favour our horn is exalted.
18 For our shield belongs to the Lord,
   our king to the Holy One of Israel.


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.
