1 I will sing of the lovingkindness of Jehovah forever; From generation to generation I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth.
2 For I have said, Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heavens themselves You will establish Your faithfulness.
3 I have made a covenant with My chosen one; I have sworn to David My servant:
4 I will establish your seed forever, And I will build up your throne from generation to generation.
5 And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O Jehovah, Indeed Your faithfulness in the congregation of the holy ones.
6 For who in the skies can be compared to Jehovah? Who among the sons of the mighty is like Jehovah,
7 Like God, greatly feared in the council of the holy ones And awesome beyond all around Him?
8 O Jehovah God of hosts, who is like You, the mighty Jah? Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
9 You rule the swelling of the sea: When its waves rise up, You still them.
10 You crushed Rahab like one slain; You scattered Your enemies with the arm of Your strength.
11 The heavens are Yours; the earth also is Yours; The world and its fullness You have founded.
12 You created the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon shout for joy at Your name.
13 You have an arm with might; Your hand is strong; Your right hand is high.
14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before Your face.
15 Blessed are the people who know the joyful shout; They walk, O Jehovah, in the light of Your countenance.
16 In Your name they exult all day long, And in Your righteousness they are exalted.
17 For You are the glory of their strength, And in Your favor our horn is exalted.
18 For our shield belongs to Jehovah, And our king, to the Holy One of Israel.
19 Then You spoke in vision Of Your Holy One, and You said, I have given help to One who is mighty; I have exalted One chosen from My people.
20 I have found David My Servant; With My holy oil I have anointed Him,
21 With whom My hand will be established; My arm will also strengthen Him.
22 The enemy will not exact anything from Him, Nor will the son of wickedness afflict Him.
23 And I will crush His adversaries before Him, And I will strike those who hate Him.
24 And My faithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with Him, And in My name His horn will be exalted.
25 And I will set His hand on the sea And His right hand on the rivers.
26 He will call upon Me, saying, You are My Father, My God and the rock of My salvation.
27 I will also make Him the Firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.
28 I will keep My lovingkindness for Him forever, And My covenant will stand firm with Him.
29 And I will establish His seed forever, And His throne as the days of heaven.
30 If His children forsake My law And do not walk in My ordinances,
31 If they profane My statutes And do not keep My commandments,
32 I will punish their transgression with a rod And their iniquity with stripes.
33 But My lovingkindness I will not utterly take away from Him, Nor will I be false to My own faithfulness.
34 I will not profane My covenant, Nor will I change what has gone forth from My lips.
35 Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David.
36 His seed shall endure forever, And His throne, like the sun before Me;
37 It shall be established forever like the moon; And the witness in the skies is firm.
38 But You have cast off and rejected; You have been angry with Your anointed.
39 You have abhorred the covenant of Your servant; You have profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
40 You have broken down all his walls; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
41 All who pass by on the way plunder him; He has become a reproach to his neighbors.
42 You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries; You have caused all his enemies to rejoice.
43 Indeed You have turned back the edge of his sword And have not made him stand in the battle.
44 You have made his brightness cease And have cast down his throne to the ground.
45 You have shortened the days of his youth; You have covered him with shame.
46 How long, O Jehovah? Will You hide Yourself forever? How long will Your wrath burn like fire?
47 Remember how short my time is - For what vanity You have created all the sons of men!
48 What man will live and not see death? Will he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol?
49 Where are Your former acts of lovingkindness, O Lord, Which You swore to David in Your faithfulness?
50 Remember, O Lord, the reproach of Your servants, How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty peoples,
51 With which Your enemies have reproached, O Jehovah, With which they have reproached the footsteps of Your anointed.
52 Blessed be Jehovah forever. Amen and Amen.
