89 Our Lord, I will sing of your love forever. Everyone yet to be born will hear me praise your faithfulness. 2 I will tell them, “God’s love can always be trusted, and his faithfulness lasts as long as the heavens.”
3 You said, “David, my servant, is my chosen one, and this is the agreement I made with him: 4 David, one of your descendants will always be king.”
5 Our Lord, let the heavens now praise your miracles, and let all of your angels praise your faithfulness.
6 None who live in the heavens can compare with you. 7 You are the most fearsome of all who live in heaven; all the others fear and greatly honor you. 8 You are Lord God All-Powerful! No one is as loving and faithful as you are. 9 You rule the roaring sea and calm its waves. 10 You crushed the monster Rahab,[a] and with your powerful arm you scattered your enemies. 11 The heavens and the earth belong to you. And so does the world with all its people because you created them 12 and everything else.[b]
Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon gladly praise you. 13 You are strong and mighty!
