Psalms 89

The psalmist praiseth God for his Covenant,

Psalms 89:1 {A wyse instruction of Ethan the Ezrachite.} I wyll sing alwayes of the mercy of God: with my mouth I wyll make knowen thy trueth from one generation to another. Psalms 89:2 For I sayde, mercy shall for euer endure: thou hast established thy trueth in the heauens. Psalms 89:3 I haue made a couenaunt with my chosen: I haue sworne vnto Dauid my seruaunt. Psalms 89:4 I wyll establishe thy seede for euer: and buylde vp thy throne from generation to generation. Selah.

for his wonderful power,

Psalms 89:5 O God, the very heauens shall confesse thy wonderous workes: and thy trueth in the congregation of saintes. Psalms 89:6 For who is he in the cloudes that shal matche God: [and who] is like vnto God amongst the children gods? Psalms 89:7 God is very terrible in the assemblie of saintes: and to be feared aboue al them that are about him. Psalms 89:8 O God, Lorde of hoastes, who is like vnto thee a most mightie Lorde: and thy trueth is on euery side thee. Psalms 89:9 Thou rulest the ragyng of the sea: when her waues aryse, thou delayest them. Psalms 89:10 Thou hast brought Egypt in so bad a case as if it were wounded: thou hast scattered thyne enemies abrode with thy mightie arme. Psalms 89:11 The heauens are thine, the earth also is thine: thou hast layde the foundation of the rounde worlde, and of all the plentie that is therin. Psalms 89:12 Thou hast made the north and the south: Tabor and Hermon do reioyce in thy name. Psalms 89:13 Thou hast a mightie arme: thy hand is strong, and thy right hand is exalted. Psalms 89:14 Iustice and iudgement is the foundation of thy throne: mercy and trueth shall go before thy face.

for the care of his Church,

Psalms 89:15 Blessed is the people that knoweth a triumphant noyse: O God, they shall walke in the light of thy countenaunce. Psalms 89:16 They shall make them selues merie dayly in thy name: and in thy righteousnes they shall exalt them selues. Psalms 89:17 For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy louing kindnes thou wylt lift vp our hornes. Psalms 89:18 For our shielde is of God: and our king is of the most holy of Israel.

for his favour to the kingdom of David.

Psalms 89:19 Thou hast spoken somtimes in visions vnto thy saintes: and hast sayde, I haue added ayde vpon the mightie, I haue exalted one chose out of the people. Psalms 89:20 I haue founde Dauid my seruaunt: I haue annoynted him with myne holye oyle. Psalms 89:21 Therfore my hande shalbe assured vnto him: and mine arme shall strengthen hym. Psalms 89:22 The enemie shal not be able to do him violence: the sonne of wickednesse shall not afflict hym. Psalms 89:23 I wyll breake into peeces his foes before his face: and ouerthrowe them that hate hym. Psalms 89:24 My trueth also and my mercy shalbe with hym: and in my name shall his horne be exalted. Psalms 89:25 I wyll set also his dominion in the sea: and his right hande in the fluddes. Psalms 89:26 He shall make inuocation vnto me: [saying] thou art my father O my God, and my fortresse of saluation. Psalms 89:27 And I will make him my first borne: in higher state then kinges of the earth. Psalms 89:28 My mercy wyll I kepe for hym euermore: and my couenaunt shal stand fast with hym. Psalms 89:29 His seede also wyll I make to endure for euer: and his throne as the dayes of heauen. Psalms 89:30 But if his chyldren forsake my lawe, and walke not in my iudgement: Psalms 89:31 if they breake my statutes, and kepe not my commaundementes, Psalms 89:32 I will then visite their transgressions with a rodde: and their wickednesse with stripes. Psalms 89:33 Neuerthelesse, my louyng kyndnesse I wyll not take vtterly from hym: I wyl not breake my promise with hym. Psalms 89:34 I wyll not violate my couenaunt: nor alter the thyng that is gone out of my lyppes. Psalms 89:35 I haue sworne once by my holynesse: that I wyll not speake an vntrueth vnto Dauid. Psalms 89:36 His seede shall endure for euer: and his throne shalbe as the sunne before me. Psalms 89:37 [And] as the moone which shall continue for euermore: and shalbe a faithful witnesse in heauen. Selah.

The complaining of contrary events,

Psalms 89:38 But thou hast abhorred & forsake thine annoynted: & art sore displeased at him. Psalms 89:39 Thou hast broken the couenaunt of thy seruaunt: thou hast disgraced his crowne, [castyng it] on the grounde. Psalms 89:40 Thou hast ouerthrowe all his walles: and broken downe his strong holdes. Psalms 89:41 All they that go by the way spoyle hym: he is become a rebuke vnto his neyghbours. Psalms 89:42 Thou hast exalted the ryght hande of his enemies: and made all his aduersaries to reioyce. Psalms 89:43 Thou hast turned the harde edge of his sworde: and thou hast not lifted him vp in the battayle. Psalms 89:44 Thou hast brought his noble estate to an ende: and hast cast his throne downe to the grounde. Psalms 89:45 Thou hast shortened the dayes of his youth: and thou hast couered him with shame. Selah.

he expostulateth, prayeth, and blesseth God.

Psalms 89:46 O God howe long wylt thou hyde thy selfe? for euer? shall thy wrath burne lyke fire? Psalms 89:47 Remember what I am, howe short my tyme is of lyfe: wherfore hast thou created in vayne all the sonnes of men? Psalms 89:48 What man is he that lyueth and shall not see death? can he delyuer his owne soule from the hande of hell? Selah. Psalms 89:49 Lorde where are become thy former olde louyng kyndnesses: [which] thou dydst sweare vnto Dauid by thy fayth [that thou wouldest perfourme.] Psalms 89:50 Remember O Lorde the dishonour of thy seruauntes: I beare in my bosome [the dishonour of] all people that be mightie. Psalms 89:51 Who beyng thine enemies O God do dishonour: who do dishonour the footsteppes of thine annoynted. Psalms 89:52 Blessed be God for euermore: so be it, and so be it.
