23 Now these are the last words of David.
Thus says David the son of Jesse;
Thus says athe man raised up on high,
bThe anointed of the God of Jacob,
And the sweet psalmist of Israel:
2 “The cSpirit of the Lord spoke by me,
And His word was on my tongue.
dThe Rock of Israel spoke to me:
‘He who rules over men must be just,
Ruling ein the fear of God.
4 And fhe shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises,
A morning without clouds,
Like the tender grass springing out of the earth,
By clear shining after rain.’
gYet He has made with me an everlasting covenant,
Ordered in all things and secure.
For this is all my salvation and all my desire;
Will He not make it increase?
