Psalms 89

The psalmist praiseth God for his Covenant,

Psalms 89:1 {An instruction. Of Ethan the Ezrahite.} I will sing of the loving-kindness of Jehovah for ever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness from generation to generation. Psalms 89:2 For I said, Loving-kindness shall be built up for ever; in the very heavens wilt thou establish thy faithfulness. Psalms 89:3 I have made a covenant with mine elect, I have sworn unto David my servant: Psalms 89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne from generation to generation. Selah.

for his wonderful power,

Psalms 89:5 And the heavens shall celebrate thy wonders, O Jehovah, and thy faithfulness in the congregation of the saints. Psalms 89:6 For who in the heaven can be compared to Jehovah? [who] among the sons of the mighty shall be likened to Jehovah? Psalms 89:7 *God is greatly to be feared in the council of the saints, and terrible for all that are round about him. Psalms 89:8 Jehovah, God of hosts, who is like unto thee, the strong Jah? And thy faithfulness is round about thee. Psalms 89:9 *Thou* rulest the pride of the sea: when its waves arise, *thou* stillest them. Psalms 89:10 Thou hast crushed Rahab as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with the arm of thy strength. Psalms 89:11 Thine are the heavens, the earth also is thine; the world and its fulness, *thou* hast founded them. Psalms 89:12 The north and the south, *thou* hast created them: Tabor and Hermon triumph in thy name. Psalms 89:13 Thine is the arm of might: strong is thy hand, high is thy right hand. Psalms 89:14 Righteousness and judgment are the foundation of thy throne; loving-kindness and truth go before thy face.

for the care of his Church,

Psalms 89:15 Blessed is the people that know the shout of joy: they walk, O Jehovah, in the light of thy countenance. Psalms 89:16 In thy name are they joyful all the day, and in thy righteousness are they exalted. Psalms 89:17 For thou art the glory of their strength; and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted. Psalms 89:18 For Jehovah is our shield, and the Holy One of Israel, our king.

for his favour to the kingdom of David.

Psalms 89:19 Then thou spakest in vision of thy Holy One, and saidst, I have laid help upon a mighty one; I have exalted one chosen out of the people. Psalms 89:20 I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: Psalms 89:21 With whom my hand shall be established; and mine arm shall strengthen him. Psalms 89:22 No enemy shall exact upon him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him; Psalms 89:23 But I will beat down his adversaries before his face, and will smite them that hate him. Psalms 89:24 And my faithfulness and my loving-kindness shall be with him, and by my name shall his horn be exalted. Psalms 89:25 And I will set his hand in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. Psalms 89:26 *He* shall call unto me, Thou art my father, my *God, and the rock of my salvation; Psalms 89:27 And as to me, I will make him firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth. Psalms 89:28 My loving-kindness will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him; Psalms 89:29 And I will establish his seed for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. Psalms 89:30 If his sons forsake my law, and walk not in mine ordinances; Psalms 89:31 If they profane my statutes, and keep not my commandments: Psalms 89:32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. Psalms 89:33 Nevertheless my loving-kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor belie my faithfulness; Psalms 89:34 My covenant will I not profane, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Psalms 89:35 Once have I sworn by my holiness; I will not lie unto David: Psalms 89:36 His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me; Psalms 89:37 It shall be established for ever as the moon, and the witness in the sky is firm. Selah.

The complaining of contrary events,

Psalms 89:38 But thou hast rejected and cast off; thou hast been very wroth with thine anointed: Psalms 89:39 Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant; thou hast profaned his crown to the ground: Psalms 89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin. Psalms 89:41 All that pass by the way plunder him; he is become a reproach to his neighbours. Psalms 89:42 Thou hast exalted the right hand of his oppressors; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice: Psalms 89:43 Yea, thou hast turned back the edge of his sword, and hast not made him stand in the battle. Psalms 89:44 Thou hast made his brightness to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground; Psalms 89:45 The days of his youth hast thou shortened; thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.

he expostulateth, prayeth, and blesseth God.

Psalms 89:46 How long, Jehovah, wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy fury burn like fire? Psalms 89:47 Remember, as regards me, what life is. Wherefore hast thou created all the children of men to be vanity? Psalms 89:48 What man liveth, and shall not see death? Shall he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah. Psalms 89:49 Where, Lord, are thy former loving-kindnesses, [which] thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness? Psalms 89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants—that I bear in my bosom [that of] all the mighty peoples— Psalms 89:51 Wherewith thine enemies, O Jehovah, have reproached, wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed. Psalms 89:52 Blessed be Jehovah for evermore! Amen, and Amen.
