20 I have found my servant David;
    with my holy oil I have anointed him;(A)
21 my hand shall always remain with him;
    my arm also shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him;
    the wicked shall not humble him.(B)
23 I will crush his foes before him
    and strike down those who hate him.(C)
24 My faithfulness and steadfast love shall be with him,
    and in my name his horn shall be exalted.(D)
25 I will set his hand on the sea
    and his right hand on the rivers.
26 He shall cry to me, ‘You are my Father,
    my God, and the Rock of my salvation!’(E)
27 I will make him the firstborn,
    the highest of the kings of the earth.(F)
28 Forever I will keep my steadfast love for him,
    and my covenant with him will stand firm.(G)
29 I will establish his line forever
    and his throne as long as the heavens endure.(H)
30 If his children forsake my law
    and do not walk according to my ordinances,(I)
31 if they violate my statutes
    and do not keep my commandments,
32 then I will punish their transgression with the rod
    and their iniquity with scourges,(J)
33 but I will not remove from him my steadfast love
    or be false to my faithfulness.(K)
34 I will not violate my covenant
    or alter the word that went forth from my lips.(L)
35 Once and for all I have sworn by my holiness;
    I will not lie to David.(M)
36 His line shall continue forever,
    and his throne endure before me like the sun.(N)
37 It shall be established forever like the moon,
    an enduring witness in the skies.” Selah
