Psalm 89 (WEBP)

[1] I will sing of the loving kindness of Yahweh forever. With my mouth, I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
[2] I indeed declare, “Love stands firm forever. You established the heavens. Your faithfulness is in them.”
[3] “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David, my servant,
[4] ‘I will establish your offspring forever, and build up your throne to all generations.’ ” Selah.
[5] The heavens will praise your wonders, Yahweh, your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
[6] For who in the skies can be compared to Yahweh? Who among the sons of the heavenly beings is like Yahweh,
[7] a very awesome God in the council of the holy ones, to be feared above all those who are around him?
[8] Yahweh, God of Armies, who is a mighty one, like you? Yah, your faithfulness is around you.
[9] You rule the pride of the sea. When its waves rise up, you calm them.
[10] You have broken Rahab in pieces, like one of the slain. You have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
[11] The heavens are yours. The earth also is yours, the world and its fullness. You have founded them.
[12] You have created the north and the south. Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your name.
[13] You have a mighty arm. Your hand is strong, and your right hand is exalted.
[14] Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Loving kindness and truth go before your face.
[15] Blessed are the people who learn to acclaim you. They walk in the light of your presence, Yahweh.
[16] In your name they rejoice all day. In your righteousness, they are exalted.
[17] For you are the glory of their strength. In your favor, our horn will be exalted.
[18] For our shield belongs to Yahweh, our king to the Holy One of Israel.
[19] Then you spoke in vision to your saints, and said, “I have given strength to the warrior. I have exalted a young man from the people.
[20] I have found David, my servant. I have anointed him with my holy oil,
[21] with whom my hand shall be established. My arm will also strengthen him.
[22] No enemy will tax him. No wicked man will oppress him.
[23] I will beat down his adversaries before him, and strike those who hate him.
[24] But my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him. In my name, his horn will be exalted.
[25] I will set his hand also on the sea, and his right hand on the rivers.
[26] He will call to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation!’
[27] I will also appoint him my firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.
[28] I will keep my loving kindness for him forever more. My covenant will stand firm with him.
[29] I will also make his offspring endure forever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
[30] If his children forsake my law, and don’t walk in my ordinances;
[31] if they break my statutes, and don’t keep my commandments;
[32] then I will punish their sin with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
[33] But I will not completely take my loving kindness from him, nor allow my faithfulness to fail.
[34] I will not break my covenant, nor alter what my lips have uttered.
[35] Once I have sworn by my holiness, I will not lie to David.
[36] His offspring will endure forever, his throne like the sun before me.
[37] It will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky.” Selah.
[38] But you have rejected and spurned. You have been angry with your anointed.
[39] You have renounced the covenant of your servant. You have defiled his crown in the dust.
[40] You have broken down all his hedges. You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
[41] All who pass by the way rob him. He has become a reproach to his neighbors.
[42] You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries. You have made all of his enemies rejoice.
[43] Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword, and haven’t supported him in battle.
[44] You have ended his splendor, and thrown his throne down to the ground.
[45] You have shortened the days of his youth. You have covered him with shame. Selah.
[46] How long, Yahweh? Will you hide yourself forever? Will your wrath burn like fire?
[47] Remember how short my time is, for what vanity you have created all the children of men!
[48] What man is he who shall live and not see death, who shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.
[49] Lord, where are your former loving kindnesses, which you swore to David in your faithfulness?
[50] Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servants, how I bear in my heart the taunts of all the mighty peoples,
[51] With which your enemies have mocked, Yahweh, with which they have mocked the footsteps of your anointed one.
[52] Blessed be Yahweh forever more. Amen, and Amen.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 89 (YLT)

[1] Of the kind acts of Jehovah, to the age I sing, To all generations I make known Thy faithfulness with my mouth,
[2] For I said, ‘To the age is kindness built, The heavens! Thou dost establish Thy faithfulness in them.’
[3] I have made a covenant for My chosen, I have sworn to David My servant:
[4] ‘Even to the age do I establish thy seed, And have built to generation and generation thy throne. Selah.
[5] and the heavens confess Thy wonders, O Jehovah, Thy faithfulness also is in an assembly of holy ones.
[6] For who in the sky, Compareth himself to Jehovah? Is like to Jehovah among sons of the mighty?
[7] God is very terrible, In the secret counsel of His holy ones, And fearful over all surrounding Him.
[8] O Jehovah, God of Hosts, Who is like Thee-a strong Jah? And Thy faithfulness is round about Thee.
[9] Thou art ruler over the pride of the sea, In the lifting up of its billows Thou dost restrain them.
[10] Thou hast bruised Rahab, as one wounded. With the arm of Thy strength Thou hast scattered Thine enemies.
[11] Thine are the heavens-the earth also is Thine, The habitable world and its fulness, Thou hast founded them.
[12] North and south Thou hast appointed them, Tabor and Hermon in Thy name do sing.
[13] Thou hast an arm with might, Strong is Thy hand-high Thy right hand.
[14] Righteousness and judgment Are the fixed place of Thy throne, Kindness and truth go before Thy face.
[15] O the happiness of the people knowing the shout, O Jehovah, in the light of Thy face they walk habitually.
[16] In Thy name they rejoice all the day, And in Thy righteousness they are exalted,
[17] For the beauty of their strength art Thou, And in Thy good will is our horn exalted,
[18] For of Jehovah is our shield, And of the Holy One of Israel our king.
[19] Then Thou hast spoken in vision, To Thy saint, yea, Thou sayest, I have placed help upon a mighty one, Exalted a chosen one out of the people,
[20] I have found David My servant, With My holy oil I have anointed him.
[21] With whom My hand is established, My arm also doth strengthen him.
[22] An enemy exacteth not upon him, And a son of perverseness afflicteth him not.
[23] And I have beaten down before him his adversaries, And those hating him I plague,
[24] And My faithfulness and kindness are with him, And in My name is his horn exalted.
[25] And I have set on the sea his hand, And on the rivers his right hand.
[26] He proclaimeth me: ‘Thou art my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.’
[27] I also first-born do appoint him, Highest of the kings of the earth.
[28] To the age I keep for him My kindness, And My covenant is stedfast with him.
[29] And I have set his seed for ever, And his throne as the days of the heavens.
[30] If his sons forsake My law, And in My judgments do not walk;
[31] If My statutes they pollute, And My commands do not keep,
[32] I have looked after with a rod their transgression, And with strokes their iniquity,
[33] And My kindness I break not from him, Nor do I deal falsely in My faithfulness.
[34] I profane not My covenant, And that which is going forth from My lips I change not.
[35] Once I have sworn by My holiness, I lie not to David,
[36] His seed is to the age, And his throne is as the sun before Me,
[37] As the moon it is established-to the age, And the witness in the sky is stedfast. Selah.
[38] And Thou, Thou hast cast off, and dost reject, Thou hast shown Thyself wroth With Thine anointed,
[39] Hast rejected the covenant of Thy servant, Thou hast polluted to the earth his crown,
[40] Thou hast broken down all his hedges, Thou hast made his fenced places a ruin.
[41] Spoiled him have all passing by the way, He hath been a reproach to his neighbours,
[42] Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries, Thou hast caused all his enemies to rejoice.
[43] Also-Thou turnest back the sharpness of his sword, And hast not established him in battle,
[44] Hast caused him to cease from his brightness, And his throne to the earth hast cast down.
[45] Thou hast shortened the days of his youth, Hast covered him over with shame. Selah.
[46] Till when, O Jehovah, art Thou hidden? For ever doth Thy fury burn as fire?
[47] Remember, I pray Thee, what is life-time? Wherefore in vain hast Thou created All the sons of men?
[48] Who is the man that liveth, and doth not see death? He delivereth his soul from the hand of Sheol. Selah.
[49] Where are Thy former kindnesses, O Lord. Thou hast sworn to David in Thy faithfulness,
[50] Remember, O Lord, the reproach of Thy servants, I have borne in my bosom all the strivings of the peoples,
[51] Wherewith Thine enemies reproached, O Jehovah, Wherewith they have reproached The steps of Thine anointed.
[52] Blessed is Jehovah to the age. Amen, and amen!
