Psalm 89: I will sing of the love of the Lord forever

Standard

Psalm 89
God’s Covenant with David
A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite.

1
I will sing of your steadfast love, O Lord, forever;

with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations.

2
I declare that your steadfast love is established forever;

your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.

3
You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,

I have sworn to my servant David:

4
‘I will establish your descendants forever,

and build your throne for all generations.’ ”Selah

5
Let the heavens praise your wonders, O Lord,

your faithfulness in the assembly of the holy ones.

6
For who in the skies can be compared to the Lord?

Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord,

7
a God feared in the council of the holy ones,

great and awesome above all that are around him?

8
O Lord God of hosts,

who is as mighty as you, O Lord?

Your faithfulness surrounds you.

9
You rule the raging of the sea;

when its waves rise, you still them.

10
You crushed Rahab like a carcass;

you scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.

11
The heavens are yours, the earth also is yours;

the world and all that is in it—you have founded them.

12
The north and the south—you created them;

Tabor and Hermon joyously praise your name.

13
You have a mighty arm;

strong is your hand, high your right hand.

14
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;

steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.

15
Happy are the people who know the festal shout,

who walk, O Lord, in the light of your countenance;

16
they exult in your name all day long,

and extol your righteousness.

17
For you are the glory of their strength;

by your favor our horn is exalted.

18
For our shield belongs to the Lord,

our king to the Holy One of Israel.
