19 You spoke once in a vision and said to your faithful people:
I have set a youth above the mighty;
I have raised a young man over the people.
20 I have found David my servant;
with my holy oil have I anointed him.
21 My hand shall hold him fast
and my arm shall strengthen him.
22 No enemy shall deceive him,
nor any wicked person afflict him.
23 I will strike down his foes before his face
and beat down those that hate him.
24 My truth also and my steadfast love shall be with him,
and in my name shall his head be exalted.
25 I will set his dominion upon the sea
and his right hand upon the rivers.
26 He shall call to me, You are my Father,
my God, and the rock of my salvation;
27 And I will make him my firstborn,
the most high above the kings of the earth.
