I Will Sing of the Steadfast Love of the Lord

A Maskil[a] of (A)Ethan the Ezrahite.

89 (B)I will sing of (C)the steadfast love of the Lord, forever;
    with my mouth I will make known your (D)faithfulness to all generations.
For I said, (E)“Steadfast love will be built up forever;
    in the heavens (F)you will establish your (G)faithfulness.”
You have said, “I have made (H)a covenant with my (I)chosen one;
    I have (J)sworn to David my servant:
‘I will establish your (K)offspring forever,
    and build your (L)throne for all generations.’” Selah

Let (M)the heavens praise your (N)wonders, O Lord,
    your faithfulness in the assembly of (O)the holy ones!

  1. Psalm 89:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term

19 (A)Of old you spoke in a vision to your godly one,[a] and said:
    “I have (B)granted help to one who is (C)mighty;
    I have exalted one (D)chosen from the people.
20 (E)I have found David, my servant;
    with my holy oil I have (F)anointed him,
21 so that my (G)hand shall be established with him;
    my arm also shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him;
    (H)the wicked shall not humble him.
23 I will (I)crush his foes before him
    and strike down those who hate him.
24 My (J)faithfulness and my (K)steadfast love shall be with him,
    and in my name shall his (L)horn be exalted.
25 I will set his hand on (M)the sea
    and his right hand on (N)the rivers.
26 He shall cry to me, ‘You are my (O)Father,
    my God, and (P)the Rock of my salvation.’
27 And I will make him the (Q)firstborn,
    (R)the highest of the kings of the earth.
28 My steadfast love I will keep for him forever,
    and my (S)covenant will stand firm[b] for him.
29 I will establish his (T)offspring forever
    and his (U)throne as (V)the days of the heavens.
