English Standard Version
20 (A)I have found David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have (B)anointed him,
21 so that my (C)hand shall be established with him;
my arm also shall strengthen him.
22 The enemy shall not outwit him;
(D)the wicked shall not humble him.
23 I will (E)crush his foes before him
and strike down those who hate him.
24 My (F)faithfulness and my (G)steadfast love shall be with him,
and in my name shall his (H)horn be exalted.
25 I will set his hand on (I)the sea
and his right hand on (J)the rivers.
26 He shall cry to me, ‘You are my (K)Father,
my God, and (L)the Rock of my salvation.’
27 And I will make him the (M)firstborn,
(N)the highest of the kings of the earth.
28 My steadfast love I will keep for him forever,
and my (O)covenant will stand firm[a] for him.
29 I will establish his (P)offspring forever
and his (Q)throne as (R)the days of the heavens.
30 (S)If his children forsake my law
and do not walk according to my rules,[b]
31 if they violate my statutes
and do not keep my commandments,
32 then I will punish their transgression with (T)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 (U)covenant
or alter the word that went forth from my lips.
35 Once for all I have sworn (V)by my holiness;
I will not (W)lie to David.
36 His (X)offspring shall endure forever,
(Y)his (Z)throne as long as (AA)the sun before me.
37 Like (AB)the moon it shall be established forever,
(AC)a faithful witness in the skies.” Selah
