New Living Translation
89[A psalm of Ethan the Ezrahite.] I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever! Young and old will hear of your faithfulness.H4905H387H250H7891H2617H3068H5769H6310H3045H530H1755H1755 2Your unfailing love will last forever. Your faithfulness is as enduring as the heavens.H559H2617H1129H5769H530H3559H8064 3The Lord said, “I have made a covenant with David, my chosen servant. I have sworn this oath to him.H3772H1285H972H7650H1732H5650 4‘I will establish your descendants as kings forever; they will sit on your throne from now until eternity.’” InterludeH2233H3559H5704H5769H1129H3678H1755H1755H5542 5All heaven will praise your great wonders, Lord; myriads of angels will praise you for your faithfulness.H8064H3034H6382H3068H530H6951H6918 6For who in all of heaven can compare with the Lord? What mightiest angel is anything like the Lord?H7834H6186H3068H1121H410H1819H3068 7The highest angelic powers stand in awe of God. He is far more awesome than all who surround his throne.H410H7227H6206H5475H6918H3372H5439 8O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies! Where is there anyone as mighty as you, O Lord? You are entirely faithful.H3068H430H6635H2626H3050H530H5439 9You rule the oceans. You subdue their storm-tossed waves.H4910H1348H3220H1530H7721H7623 10You crushed the great sea monster. You scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.H1792H7294H1792H2491H6340H341H5797H2220 11The heavens are yours, and the earth is yours; everything in the world is yours—you created it all.H8064H776H8398H4393H3245 12You created north and south. Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon praise your name.H6828H3225H1254H8396H2768H7442H8034 13Powerful is your arm! Strong is your hand! Your right hand is lifted high in glorious strength.H1369H2220H5810H3027H7311H3225 14Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Unfailing love and truth walk before you as attendants.H6664H4941H4349H3678H2617H571H6923H6440 15Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of your presence, Lord.H835H5971H3045H8643H1980H3068H216H6440 16They rejoice all day long in your wonderful reputation. They exult in your righteousness.H8034H1523H3117H6666H7311 17You are their glorious strength. It pleases you to make us strong.H8597H5797H7522H7161H7311H7311 18Yes, our protection comes from the Lord, and he, the Holy One of Israel, has given us our king.H3068H4043H6918H3478H4428 19Long ago you spoke in a vision to your faithful people. You said, “I have raised up a warrior. I have selected him from the common people to be king.H1696H2377H2623H559H7737H5828H1368H7311H977H5971 20I have found my servant David. I have anointed him with my holy oil.H4672H1732H5650H6944H8081H4886 21I will steady him with my hand; with my powerful arm I will make him strong.H3027H3559H2220H553 22His enemies will not defeat him, nor will the wicked overpower him.H341H5378H1121H5766H6031 23I will beat down his adversaries before him and destroy those who hate him.H3807H6862H6440H5062H8130 24My faithfulness and unfailing love will be with him, and by my authority he will grow in power.H530H2617H8034H7161H7311 25I will extend his rule over the sea, his dominion over the rivers.H7760H3027H3220H3225H5104 26And he will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.’H7121H1H410H6697H3444 27I will make him my firstborn son, the mightiest king on earth.H5414H1060H5945H4428H776 28I will love him and be kind to him forever; my covenant with him will never end.H2617H8104H5769H1285H539 29I will preserve an heir for him; his throne will be as endless as the days of heaven.H2233H7760H5703H3678H3117H8064 30But if his descendants forsake my instructions and fail to obey my regulations,H1121H5800H8451H3212H4941 31if they do not obey my decrees and fail to keep my commands,H2490H2708H8104H4687 32then I will punish their sin with the rod, and their disobedience with beating.H6485H6588H7626H5771H5061 33But I will never stop loving him nor fail to keep my promise to him.H2617H6331H530H8266 34No, I will not break my covenant; I will not take back a single word I said.H1285H2490H8138H4161H8193 35I have sworn an oath to David, and in my holiness I cannot lie.H259H7650H6944H3576H1732 36His dynasty will go on forever; his kingdom will endure as the sun.H2233H5769H3678H8121 37It will be as eternal as the moon, my faithful witness in the sky!” InterludeH3559H5769H3394H539H5707H7834H5542 38But now you have rejected him and cast him off. You are angry with your anointed king.H2186H3988H5674H4899 39You have renounced your covenant with him; you have thrown his crown in the dust.H5010H1285H5650H2490H5145H776 40You have broken down the walls protecting him and ruined every fort defending him.H6555H1448H7760H4013H4288 41Everyone who comes along has robbed him, and he has become a joke to his neighbors.H5674H1870H8155H2781H7934 42You have strengthened his enemies and made them all rejoice.H7311H3225H6862H341H8055 43You have made his sword useless and refused to help him in battle.H7725H6697H2719H6965H4421 44You have ended his splendor and overturned his throne.H2892H7673H4048H3678H4048H776 45You have made him old before his time and publicly disgraced him. InterludeH3117H5934H7114H5844H955H5542 46O Lord, how long will this go on? Will you hide yourself forever? How long will your anger burn like fire?H3068H5641H5331H2534H1197H784 47Remember how short my life is, how empty and futile this human existence!H2142H2465H1254H1121H120H7723 48No one can live forever; all will die. No one can escape the power of the grave. InterludeH1397H2421H7200H4194H4422H5315H3027H7585H5542 49Lord, where is your unfailing love? You promised it to David with a faithful pledge.H136H7223H2617H7650H1732H530 50Consider, Lord, how your servants are disgraced! I carry in my heart the insults of so many people.H2142H136H2781H5650H5375H2436H7227H5971 51Your enemies have mocked me, O Lord; they mock your anointed king wherever he goes.H341H2778H3068H2778H6119H4899 52Praise the Lord forever! Amen and amen!H1288H3068H5769H543H543
