Psalm 89:19–37

19  qThen thou spakest in vision to rthy holy one,

And saidst, I have slaid help upon one that is tmighty;

I have exalted one uchosen out of the people.

20  xI have found David my servant;

yWith my holy oil have I anointed him:

21  zWith whom my hand shall be established:

Mine arm also shall zstrengthen him.

22  The enemy shall not exact upon him;

Nor athe son of wickedness afflict him.

23  And I will bbeat down his foes before his face,

And plague them that hate him.

24  But cmy faithfulness and cmy mercy shall be with him:

And in my name dshall his horn be exalted.

25  I will set his hand also in ethe sea,

And his right hand in ethe rivers.

26  He shall cry unto me, Thou art fmy father,

My God, and gthe rock of my salvation.

27  Also I will make him hmy firstborn,

iHigher than the kings of the earth.

28  kMy mercy will I keep for him for evermore,

And lmy covenant shall stand fast with him.

29  mHis seed also will I make to endure for ever,

And nhis throne oas the days of heaven.

30  pIf his children qforsake my law,

And walk not in my judgments;

31  If they break my statutes,

And keep not my commandments;

32  Then will I rvisit their transgression with sthe rod,

And their iniquity with sstripes.

33  Nevertheless cmy lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him,

Nor suffer cmy faithfulness to fail.

34  lMy covenant will I not tbreak,

Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

35  Once have I usworn vby my holiness

That I will not lie unto David.

36  mHis seed shall endure for ever,

And nhis throne xas the sun before me.

37  It shall be established for ever as xthe moon,

And as a faithful ywitness in heaven. Selah.
