Psalms 89

The psalmist praiseth God for his Covenant,

Psalms 89:1 {A Psalme to giue instruction, of Ethan the Ezrahite.} I will sing the mercies of the Lorde for euer: with my mouth will I declare thy trueth from generation to generation. Psalms 89:2 For I said, Mercie shalbe set vp for euer: thy trueth shalt thou stablish in ye very heauens. Psalms 89:3 I haue made a couenant with my chosen: I haue sworne to Dauid my seruant, Psalms 89:4 Thy seede will I stablish for euer, & set vp thy throne from generation to generation. Selah.

for his wonderful power,

Psalms 89:5 O Lord, euen the heauens shall prayse thy wonderous worke: yea, thy trueth in the Congregation of the Saints. Psalms 89:6 For who is equall to the Lorde in the heauen? and who is like the Lord among the sonnes of the gods? Psalms 89:7 God is very terrible in the assemblie of the Saints, and to be reuerenced aboue all, that are about him. Psalms 89:8 O Lorde God of hostes, who is like vnto thee, which art a mightie Lord, and thy trueth is 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 beaten downe Rahab as a man slaine: thou hast scattered thine enemies with thy mightie arme. Psalms 89:11 The heauens are thine, the earth also is thine: thou hast layde the foundation of the world, and all that therein is. Psalms 89:12 Thou hast created the North and the South: Tabor and Hermon shall reioyce in thy Name. Psalms 89:13 Thou hast a mightie arme: strong is thine hand, and high is thy right hand. Psalms 89:14 Righteousnesse and equitie are the stablishment of thy throne: mercy and trueth goe before thy face.

for the care of his Church,

Psalms 89:15 Blessed is the people, that can reioyce in thee: they shall walke in the light of thy countenance, O Lord. Psalms 89:16 They shall reioyce continually in thy Name, and in thy righteousnes shall they exalt them selues. Psalms 89:17 For thou art the glory of their strength, and by thy fauour our hornes shall be exalted. Psalms 89:18 For our shield apperteineth to the Lorde, and our King to the holy one of Israel.

for his favour to the kingdom of David.

Psalms 89:19 Thou spakest then in a vision vnto thine Holy one, and saydest, I haue layde 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 mine holy oyle haue I anoynted him. Psalms 89:21 Therefore mine hande shall be established with him, and mine arme shall strengthen him. Psalms 89:22 The enemie shall not oppresse him, neither shall the wicked hurt him. Psalms 89:23 But I will destroy his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. Psalms 89:24 My trueth also and my mercie shall be 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 floods. Psalms 89:26 He shall cry vnto mee, Thou art my Father, my God and the rocke of my saluation. Psalms 89:27 Also I wil make him my first borne, higher then the Kings of the earth. Psalms 89:28 My mercie will I keepe for him for euermore, and my couenant shall stande fast with him. Psalms 89:29 His seede also will I make to endure for euer, and his throne as the dayes of heauen. Psalms 89:30 But 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 strokes. Psalms 89:33 Yet my louing kindnesse will I not take from him, neither will I falsifie my trueth. Psalms 89:34 My couenant wil I not breake, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Psalms 89:35 I haue sworne once by mine holines, that I will not fayle Dauid, saying, Psalms 89:36 His seede shall endure for euer, and his throne shalbe as the sunne before me. Psalms 89:37 He shalbe established for euermore as the moone, and as a faythfull witnes in the heauen. Selah.

The complaining of contrary events,

Psalms 89:38 But thou hast reiected and abhorred, thou hast bene angry with thine Anoynted. Psalms 89:39 Thou hast broken the couenant of thy seruant, and profaned his crowne, casting it on the ground. Psalms 89:40 Thou hast broken downe all his walles: thou hast layd his fortresses in ruine. Psalms 89:41 All that goe by the way, spoyle him: he is a rebuke vnto his neighbours. Psalms 89:42 Thou hast set vp the right hand of his enemies, and made all his aduersaries to reioyce. Psalms 89:43 Thou hast also turned the edge of his sworde, and hast not made him to stand in the battell. Psalms 89:44 Thou hast caused his dignitie to decay, and cast his throne to the ground. Psalms 89:45 The dayes of his youth hast thou shortned, and couered him with shame. Selah.

he expostulateth, prayeth, and blesseth God.

Psalms 89:46 Lord, howe long wilt thou hide thy selfe, for euer? shall thy wrath burne like fire? Psalms 89:47 Remember of what time I am: wherefore shouldest thou create in vaine all the children of men? Psalms 89:48 What man liueth, and shall not see death? shall hee deliuer his soule from the hande of the graue? Selah. Psalms 89:49 Lord, where are thy former mercies, which thou swarest vnto Dauid in thy trueth? Psalms 89:50 Remember, O Lord, the rebuke of thy seruants, which I beare in my bosome of all the mightie people. Psalms 89:51 For thine enemies haue reproched thee, O Lorde, because they haue reproched the footesteps of thine Anointed. Psalms 89:52 Praised be the Lord for euermore. So be it, euen so be it.
