89:20 I have found [H4672] David [H1732] my servant [H5650] ; with my holy [H6944] oil [H8081] have I anointed [H4886] him:
89:21 With whom my hand [H3027] shall be established [H3559] : mine arm [H2220] also shall strengthen [H553] him.
89:22 The enemy [H341] shall not exact [H5378] upon him; nor the son [H1121] of wickedness [H5766] afflict [H6031] him.

89:25 I will set [H7760] his hand [H3027] also in the sea [H3220] , and his right hand [H3225] in the rivers [H5104] .

89:27 Also I will make [H5414] him [my] firstborn [H1060] , higher [H5945] than the kings [H4428] of the earth [H776] .
89:28 My mercy [H2617] will I keep [H8104] for him for evermore [H5769] , and my covenant [H1285] shall stand fast [H539] with him.
89:29 His seed [H2233] also will I make [H7760] [to endure] for ever [H5703] , and his throne [H3678] as the days [H3117] of heaven [H8064] .
89:30 If his children [H1121] forsake [H5800] my law [H8451] , and walk [H3212] not in my judgments [H4941] ;
89:31 If they break [H2490] my statutes [H2708] , and keep [H8104] not my commandments [H4687] ;(break: Heb. profane)
89:32 Then will I visit [H6485] their transgression [H6588] with the rod [H7626] , and their iniquity [H5771] with stripes [H5061] .

89:36 His seed [H2233] shall endure for ever [H5769] , and his throne [H3678] as the sun [H8121] before me.

89:38 But thou hast cast off [H2186] and abhorred [H3988] , thou hast been wroth [H5674] with thine anointed [H4899] .
89:39 Thou hast made void [H5010] the covenant [H1285] of thy servant [H5650] : thou hast profaned [H2490] his crown [H5145] [by casting it] to the ground [H776] .
89:40 Thou hast broken down [H6555] all his hedges [H1448] ; thou hast brought [H7760] his strong holds [H4013] to ruin [H4288] .
89:41 All that pass by [H5674] the way [H1870] spoil [H8155] him: he is a reproach [H2781] to his neighbours [H7934] .
89:42 Thou hast set up [H7311] the right hand [H3225] of his adversaries [H6862] ; thou hast made all his enemies [H341] to rejoice [H8055] .
89:43 Thou hast also turned [H7725] the edge [H6697] of his sword [H2719] , and hast not made him to stand [H6965] in the battle [H4421] .
89:44 Thou hast made his glory [H2892] to cease [H7673] , and cast [H4048] his throne [H3678] down [H4048] to the ground [H776] .(glory: Heb. brightness)
89:45 The days [H3117] of his youth [H5934] hast thou shortened [H7114] : thou hast covered [H5844] him with shame [H955] . Selah [H5542] .
89:46 How long, LORD [H3068] ? wilt thou hide [H5641] thyself for ever [H5331] ? shall thy wrath [H2534] burn [H1197] like fire [H784] ?
89:47 Remember [H2142] how short [H2465] my time is: wherefore hast thou made [H1254] all men [H1121] [H120] in vain [H7723] ?
89:48 What man [H1397] [is he that] liveth [H2421] , and shall not see [H7200] death [H4194] ? shall he deliver [H4422] his soul [H5315] from the hand [H3027] of the grave [H7585] ? Selah [H5542] .
89:49 Lord [H136] , where [are] thy former [H7223] lovingkindnesses [H2617] , [which] thou swarest [H7650] unto David [H1732] in thy truth [H530] ?
89:50 Remember [H2142] , Lord [H136] , the reproach [H2781] of thy servants [H5650] ; [how] I do bear [H5375] in my bosom [H2436] [the reproach of] all the mighty [H7227] people [H5971] ;
89:51 Wherewith thine enemies [H341] have reproached [H2778] , O LORD [H3068] ; wherewith they have reproached [H2778] the footsteps [H6119] of thine anointed [H4899] .
89:52 Blessed [H1288] [be] the LORD [H3068] for evermore [H5769] . Amen [H543] , and Amen [H543] .
