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.
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!”
27 I will make him the firstborn,
   the highest of the kings of the earth.
28 For-ever I will keep my steadfast love for him,
   and my covenant with him will stand firm.
29 I will establish his line for ever,
   and his throne as long as the heavens endure.
