English Standard Version
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.
30 (W)If his children forsake my law
and do not walk according to my rules,[c]
31 if they violate my statutes
and do not keep my commandments,
32 then I will punish their transgression with (X)the rod
and their iniquity with stripes,
33 but I will not remove from him my steadfast love
or be false to my faithfulness.
34 I will not violate my (Y)covenant
or alter the word that went forth from my lips.
35 Once for all I have sworn (Z)by my holiness;
I will not (AA)lie to David.
36 His (AB)offspring shall endure forever,
(AC)his (AD)throne as long as (AE)the sun before me.
37 Like (AF)the moon it shall be established forever,
(AG)a faithful witness in the skies.” Selah
New King James Version
19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your [a]holy one,
And said: “I have given help to one who is mighty;
I have exalted one (A)chosen from the people.
20 (B)I have found My servant David;
With My holy oil I have anointed him,
21 (C)With whom My hand shall be established;
Also My arm shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not [b]outwit him,
Nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
23 I will beat down his foes before his face,
And plague those who hate him.
24 “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him,
And in My name his horn shall be exalted.
25 Also I will (D)set his hand over the sea,
And his right hand over the rivers.
26 He shall cry to Me, ‘You are (E)my Father,
My God, and (F)the rock of my salvation.’
27 Also I will make him (G)My firstborn,
(H)The highest of the kings of the earth.
28 (I)My mercy I will keep for him forever,
And My covenant shall stand firm with him.
29 His seed also I will make to endure forever,
(J)And his throne (K)as the days of heaven.
30 “If(L) his sons (M)forsake My law
And do not walk in My judgments,
31 If they [c]break My statutes
And do not keep My commandments,
32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod,
And their iniquity with stripes.
33 (N)Nevertheless My lovingkindness I will not [d]utterly take from him,
Nor [e]allow My faithfulness to fail.
34 My covenant I will not break,
Nor (O)alter the word that has gone out of My lips.
35 Once I have sworn (P)by My holiness;
I will not lie to David:
36 (Q)His seed shall endure forever,
And his throne (R)as the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the moon,
Even like the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah
