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.

Psalm 89 (KJVS)

[1] «Maschil H4905 (8688) of Ethan H387 the Ezrahite H250.» I will sing H7891 (8799) of the mercies H2617 of the LORD H3068 for ever H5769: with my mouth H6310 will I make known H3045 (8686) thy faithfulness H530 to all H1755 generations H1755.
[2] For I have said H559 (8804), Mercy H2617 shall be built up H1129 (8735) for ever H5769: thy faithfulness H530 shalt thou establish H3559 (8686) in the very heavens H8064.
[3] I have made H3772 (8804) a covenant H1285 with my chosen H972, I have sworn H7650 (8738) unto David H1732 my servant H5650,
[4] Thy seed H2233 will I establish H3559 (8686) for H5704 ever H5769, and build up H1129 (8804) thy throne H3678 to all H1755 generations H1755. Selah H5542.
[5] And the heavens H8064 shall praise H3034 (8686) thy wonders H6382, O LORD H3068: thy faithfulness H530 also in the congregation H6951 of the saints H6918.
[6] For who in the heaven H7834 can be compared H6186 (8799) unto the LORD H3068? [who] among the sons H1121 of the mighty H410 can be likened H1819 (8799) unto the LORD H3068?
[7] God H410 is greatly H7227 to be feared H6206 (8737) in the assembly H5475 of the saints H6918, and to be had in reverence H3372 (8737) of all [them that are] about H5439 him.
[8] O LORD H3068 God H430 of hosts H6635, who [is] a strong H2626 LORD H3050 like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness H530 round about H5439 thee?
[9] Thou rulest H4910 (8802) the raging H1348 of the sea H3220: when the waves H1530 thereof arise H7721 (8800), thou stillest H7623 (8762) them.
[10] Thou hast broken H1792 Rahab H7294 in pieces H1792 (8765), as one that is slain H2491; thou hast scattered H6340 (8765) thine enemies H341 (8802) with thy strong H5797 arm H2220.
[11] The heavens H8064 [are] thine, the earth H776 also [is] thine: [as for] the world H8398 and the fulness H4393 thereof, thou hast founded H3245 (8804) them.
[12] The north H6828 and the south H3225 thou hast created H1254 (8804) them: Tabor H8396 and Hermon H2768 shall rejoice H7442 (8762) in thy name H8034.
[13] Thou hast a mighty H1369 arm H2220: strong H5810 (8799) is thy hand H3027, [and] high H7311 (8799) is thy right hand H3225.
[14] Justice H6664 and judgment H4941 [are] the habitation H4349 of thy throne H3678: mercy H2617 and truth H571 shall go H6923 (8762) before thy face H6440.
[15] Blessed H835 [is] the people H5971 that know H3045 (8802) the joyful sound H8643: they shall walk H1980 (8762), O LORD H3068, in the light H216 of thy countenance H6440.
[16] In thy name H8034 shall they rejoice H1523 (8799) all the day H3117: and in thy righteousness H6666 shall they be exalted H7311 (8799).
[17] For thou [art] the glory H8597 of their strength H5797: and in thy favour H7522 our horn H7161 shall be exalted H7311 (8799) (8675) H7311 (8686).
[18] For the LORD H3068 [is] our defence H4043; and the Holy One H6918 of Israel H3478 [is] our king H4428.
[19] Then thou spakest H1696 (8765) in vision H2377 to thy holy one H2623, and saidst H559 (8799), I have laid H7737 (8765) help H5828 upon [one that is] mighty H1368; I have exalted H7311 (8689) [one] chosen H977 (8803) out of the people H5971.
[20] I have found H4672 (8804) David H1732 my servant H5650; with my holy H6944 oil H8081 have I anointed H4886 (8804) him:
[21] With whom my hand H3027 shall be established H3559 (8735): mine arm H2220 also shall strengthen H553 (8762) him.
[22] The enemy H341 (8802) shall not exact H5378 (8686) upon him; nor the son H1121 of wickedness H5766 afflict H6031 (8762) him.
[23] And I will beat down H3807 (8804) his foes H6862 before his face H6440, and plague H5062 (8799) them that hate H8130 (8764) him.
[24] But my faithfulness H530 and my mercy H2617 [shall be] with him: and in my name H8034 shall his horn H7161 be exalted H7311 (8799).
[25] I will set H7760 (8804) his hand H3027 also in the sea H3220, and his right hand H3225 in the rivers H5104.
[26] He shall cry H7121 (8799) unto me, Thou [art] my father H1, my God H410, and the rock H6697 of my salvation H3444.
[27] Also I will make H5414 (8799) him [my] firstborn H1060, higher H5945 than the kings H4428 of the earth H776.
[28] My mercy H2617 will I keep H8104 (8799) for him for evermore H5769, and my covenant H1285 shall stand fast H539 (8737) with him.
[29] His seed H2233 also will I make H7760 (8804) [to endure] for ever H5703, and his throne H3678 as the days H3117 of heaven H8064.
[30] If his children H1121 forsake H5800 (8799) my law H8451, and walk H3212 (8799) not in my judgments H4941;
[31] If they break H2490 (8762) my statutes H2708, and keep H8104 (8799) not my commandments H4687;
[32] Then will I visit H6485 (8804) their transgression H6588 with the rod H7626, and their iniquity H5771 with stripes H5061.
[33] Nevertheless my lovingkindness H2617 will I not utterly take H6331 (8686) from him, nor suffer my faithfulness H530 to fail H8266 (8762).
[34] My covenant H1285 will I not break H2490 (8762), nor alter H8138 (8762) the thing that is gone out H4161 of my lips H8193.
[35] Once H259 have I sworn H7650 (8738) by my holiness H6944 that I will not lie H3576 (8762) unto David H1732.
[36] His seed H2233 shall endure for ever H5769, and his throne H3678 as the sun H8121 before me.
[37] It shall be established H3559 (8735) for ever H5769 as the moon H3394, and [as] a faithful H539 (8737) witness H5707 in heaven H7834. Selah H5542.
[38] But thou hast cast off H2186 (8804) and abhorred H3988 (8799), thou hast been wroth H5674 (8694) with thine anointed H4899.
[39] Thou hast made void H5010 (8765) the covenant H1285 of thy servant H5650: thou hast profaned H2490 (8765) his crown H5145 [by casting it] to the ground H776.
[40] Thou hast broken down H6555 (8804) all his hedges H1448; thou hast brought H7760 (8804) his strong holds H4013 to ruin H4288.
[41] All that pass by H5674 (8802) the way H1870 spoil H8155 (8804) him: he is a reproach H2781 to his neighbours H7934.
[42] Thou hast set up H7311 (8689) the right hand H3225 of his adversaries H6862; thou hast made all his enemies H341 (8802) to rejoice H8055 (8689).
[43] Thou hast also turned H7725 (8686) the edge H6697 of his sword H2719, and hast not made him to stand H6965 (8689) in the battle H4421.
[44] Thou hast made his glory H2892 to cease H7673 (8689), and cast H4048 his throne H3678 down H4048 (8765) to the ground H776.
[45] The days H3117 of his youth H5934 hast thou shortened H7114 (8689): thou hast covered H5844 (8689) him with shame H955. Selah H5542.
[46] How long, LORD H3068? wilt thou hide H5641 (8735) thyself for ever H5331? shall thy wrath H2534 burn H1197 (8799) like fire H784?
[47] Remember H2142 (8798) how short H2465 my time is: wherefore hast thou made H1254 (8804) all men H1121 H120 in vain H7723?
[48] What man H1397 [is he that] liveth H2421 (8799), and shall not see H7200 (8799) death H4194? shall he deliver H4422 (8762) his soul H5315 from the hand H3027 of the grave H7585? Selah H5542.
[49] Lord H136, where [are] thy former H7223 lovingkindnesses H2617, [which] thou swarest H7650 (8738) unto David H1732 in thy truth H530?
[50] Remember H2142 (8798), Lord H136, the reproach H2781 of thy servants H5650; [how] I do bear H5375 (8800) in my bosom H2436 [the reproach of] all the mighty H7227 people H5971;
[51] Wherewith thine enemies H341 (8802) have reproached H2778 (8765), O LORD H3068; wherewith they have reproached H2778 (8765) the footsteps H6119 of thine anointed H4899.
[52] Blessed H1288 (8803) [be] the LORD H3068 for evermore H5769. Amen H543, and Amen H543.

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!
