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 ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. Psalms 89:2 For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever; thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. Psalms 89:3 I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant; Psalms 89:4 Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. [Selah]

for his wonderful power,

Psalms 89:5 And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD; thy faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones. Psalms 89:6 For who in the skies can be compared unto the LORD? who among the sons of the mighty is like unto the LORD, Psalms 89:7 A God very terrible in the council of the holy ones, and to be feared above all them that are round about him? Psalms 89:8 O LORD God of hosts, who is a mighty one, like unto thee, O JAH? and thy faithfulness is round about thee. Psalms 89:9 Thou rulest the pride of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, thou stillest them. Psalms 89:10 Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with the arm of thy strength. Psalms 89:11 The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them. Psalms 89:12 The north and the south, thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon rejoice in thy name. Psalms 89:13 Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, and high is thy right hand. Psalms 89:14 Righteousness and judgment are the foundation of thy throne: mercy and truth go before thy face.

for the care of his Church,

Psalms 89:15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance. Psalms 89:16 In thy name do they rejoice 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 our shield belongeth unto the LORD; and our king to the Holy One of Israel.

for his favour to the kingdom of David.

Psalms 89:19 Then thou spakest in vision to thy saints, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; 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; mine arm also shall strengthen him. Psalms 89:22 The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. Psalms 89:23 And I will beat down his adversaries before him, and smite them that hate him. Psalms 89:24 But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him; and in my name shall his horn be exalted. Psalms 89:25 I will set his hand also on the sea, and his right hand on the rivers. Psalms 89:26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation. Psalms 89:27 I also will make him [my] firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth. Psalms 89:28 My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. Psalms 89:29 His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. Psalms 89:30 If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; Psalms 89:31 If they break 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 But my mercy will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. Psalms 89:34 My covenant will I not break, 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 [as] the faithful witness in the sky. [Selah]

The complaining of contrary events,

Psalms 89:38 But thou hast cast off and rejected, thou hast been wroth with thine anointed. Psalms 89:39 Thou hast abhorred the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown [even] to the ground. Psalms 89:40 Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to rain. Psalms 89:41 All that pass by the way spoil him: he is become a reproach to his neighbours. Psalms 89:42 Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice. Psalms 89:43 Yea, thou turnest back the edge his sword, and hast not made him to 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, O LORD, wilt thou hid thyself for ever? [how long] shall thy wrath burn like fire? Psalms 89:47 O remember how short my time is: for what vanity hast thou created all the children of men! Psalms 89:48 What man is he that shall live and not see death, that shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? [Selah] Psalms 89:49 Lord, where are thy former mercies, which thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness? Psalms 89:50 Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; how I do bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty peoples: Psalms 89:51 Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O LORD, wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed. Psalms 89:52 Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
