Psalm 89 New International Version (NIV)
A maskil[b] of Ethan the Ezrahite.
1 I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
5 The heavens praise your wonders, Lord,
9 You rule over the surging sea;
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
19 Once you spoke in a vision,
30 “If his sons forsake my law
38 But you have rejected, you have spurned,
46 How long, Lord? Will you hide yourself forever?
52 Praise be to the Lord forever!
Psalm 89 New King James Version (NKJV)
Remembering the Covenant with David, and Sorrow for Lost Blessings
A [a]Contemplation of Ethan the Ezrahite.
89 I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever;
3 “I have made a covenant with My chosen,
5 And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord;
11 The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours;
19 Then You spoke in a vision to Your [d]holy one,
24 “But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him,
30 “If his sons forsake My law
38 But You have cast off and abhorred,[i]
46 How long, Lord?
49 Lord, where are Your former lovingkindnesses,
52 Blessed be the Lord forevermore!
Psalm 89 English Standard Version (ESV)
I Will Sing of the Steadfast Love of the Lord
A Maskil[a] of Ethan the Ezrahite.
89 I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever;
5 Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord,
19 Of old you spoke in a vision to your godly one,[c] and said:
38 But now you have cast off and rejected;
46 How long, O Lord? Will you hide yourself forever?
49 Lord, where is your steadfast love of old,
52 Blessed be the Lord forever!
