18 For our shield belongs to the Lord, [a]And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
19 [b]Once You spoke in vision to Your godly [c]ones, And said, “I have [d]given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people. 20 “I have found David My servant; With My holy oil I have anointed him, 21 With whom My hand will be established; My arm also will strengthen him. 22 “The enemy will not [e]deceive him, Nor the [f]son of wickedness afflict him. 23 “But I shall crush his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him. 24 “My faithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with him, And in My name his horn will be exalted. 25 “I shall also set his hand on the sea And his right hand on the rivers. 26 “He will cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’ 27 “I also shall make him Myfirstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth. 28 “My lovingkindness I will keep for him forever, And My covenant shall be confirmed to him. 29 “So I will establish his [g]descendants forever And his throne as the days of heaven.
30 “If his sons forsake My law And do not walk in My judgments, 31 If they [h]violate My statutes And do not keep My commandments, 32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod And their iniquity with stripes. 33 “But I will not break off My lovingkindness from him, Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness. 34 “My covenant I will not [i]violate, Nor will I alter [j]the utterance of My lips. 35 “[k]Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David. 36 “His [l]descendants shall endure forever And his throne as the sun before Me. 37 “It shall be established forever like the moon, And the witness in the sky is faithful.” [m]Selah.
38 But You have cast off and rejected, You have been full of wrath [n]against Your anointed. 39 You have spurned the covenant of Your servant; You have profaned his crown [o]in the dust. 40 You have broken down all his walls; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
