Psalms 89

The psalmist praiseth God for his Covenant,

Psalms 89:1 {Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite.} I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for euer: with my mouth will I make knowen thy faithfulnesse to all generations. Psalms 89:2 For I haue said, Mercie shall bee built vp for euer: thy faithfulnesse shalt thou establish in the very heauens. Psalms 89:3 I haue made a couenant with my chosen: I haue sworne vnto Dauid my seruant. Psalms 89:4 Thy seed will I stablish for euer: and build vp thy throne to all generations. Selah.

for his wonderful power,

Psalms 89:5 And the heauens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD: thy faithfulnes also in the congregation of the Saints. Psalms 89:6 For who in the heauen can be compared vnto the LORD? [who] among the sonnes of the mightie can be likened vnto the LORD? Psalms 89:7 God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the Saints: and to bee had in reuerence of all them [that are] about him. Psalms 89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who [is] a strong Lord like vnto thee? or to thy faithfulnesse round about thee? Psalms 89:9 Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when the waues thereof arise; thou stillest them. Psalms 89:10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slaine: thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy strong arme. Psalms 89:11 The heauens [are] thine, the earth also [is] thine: as for the world and the fulnes thereof, thou hast founded them. Psalms 89:12 The North and the South, thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall reioyce in thy Name. Psalms 89:13 Thou [hast] a mighty arme: strong is thy hand, [and] high is thy right hand. Psalms 89:14 Iustice and iudgement are the habitation of thy throne: mercie and trueth shall goe before thy face.

for the care of his Church,

Psalms 89:15 Blessed [is] the people that knowe the ioyfull sound: they shall walke O LORD in the light of thy countenance. Psalms 89:16 In thy name shall they reioyce all the day: and in thy righteousnes shall they be exalted. Psalms 89:17 For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy fauour our horne shall be exalted. Psalms 89:18 For the LORD is our defence: and the holy One of Israel is our king.

for his favour to the kingdom of David.

Psalms 89:19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I haue laid helpe vpon one that is mightie: I haue exalted one chosen out of the people. Psalms 89:20 I haue found Dauid my seruant: with my holy oile haue I anointed him. Psalms 89:21 With whome my hand shall bee established: mine arme also shall strengthen him. Psalms 89:22 The enemie shall not exact vpon him: nor the sonne of wickednesse afflict him. Psalms 89:23 And I will beate downe his foes before his face: and plague them that hate him. Psalms 89:24 But my faithfulnesse and my mercy shalbe with him: and in my name shall his horne be exalted. Psalms 89:25 I will set his hand also in the sea: and his right hand in the riuers. Psalms 89:26 He shall crie vnto mee, Thou [art] my father: my God, and the rocke of my saluation. Psalms 89:27 Also I will make him [my] first borne: higher then the kings of the earth. Psalms 89:28 My mercy will I keepe for him for euermore: and my couenant shall stand fast with him. Psalms 89:29 His seed also will I make [to indure] for euer: and his throne as the dayes of heauen. Psalms 89:30 If his children forsake my lawe, and walke not in my iudgements; Psalms 89:31 If they breake my statutes, and keepe not my commandements: Psalms 89:32 Then will I visite their transgression with the rod, and their iniquitie with stripes. Psalms 89:33 Neuerthelesse, my louing kindnesse will I not vtterly take from him: nor suffer my faithfulnesse to faile. Psalms 89:34 My couenant will I not breake: nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lippes. Psalms 89:35 Once haue I sworne by my holinesse; that I will not lye vnto Dauid. Psalms 89:36 His seede shall endure for euer; and his throne as the sunne before me. Psalms 89:37 It shalbe established for euer as the Moone: and as a faithfull witnesse in heauen. Selah.

The complaining of contrary events,

Psalms 89:38 But thou hast cast off and abhorred: thou hast bene wroth with thine anointed. Psalms 89:39 Thou hast made voyd the couenant of thy seruant: thou hast profaned his crowne, by casting it to the ground. Psalms 89:40 Thou hast broken downe all his hedges: thou hast brought his strong holds to ruine. Psalms 89:41 All that passe by the way; spoile him: hee is a reproach to his neighbours. Psalms 89:42 Thou hast set vp the right hand of his aduersaries: thou hast made all his enemies to reioyce. Psalms 89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword: and hast not made him to stand in the battaile. Psalms 89:44 Thou hast made his glory to cease: and cast his throne downe to the ground. Psalms 89:45 The dayes of his youth hast thou shortned: thou hast couered him with shame. Selah.

he expostulateth, prayeth, and blesseth God.

Psalms 89:46 How long, LORD, wilt thou hide thy selfe, for euer? shall thy wrath burne like fire? Psalms 89:47 Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast thou made all men in vaine? Psalms 89:48 What man [is he that] liueth, and shall not see death? shall he deliuer his soule from the hand of the graue? Selah. Psalms 89:49 Lord, where [are] thy former louing kindnesses, [which] thou swarest vnto Dauid in thy trueth? Psalms 89:50 Remember (Lord) the reproach of thy seruants: [how] I doe beare in my bosome [the reproache] of all the mighty people. Psalms 89:51 Wherewith thine enemies haue reproached, O LORD: wherewith they haue reproached the foote-steppes of thine Annointed. Psalms 89:52 Blessed [be] the LORD for euermore, Amen, and Amen.
