1 I will asing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever; To all generations I will bmake known Your cfaithfulness with my mouth. 2 For I have said, "aLovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heavens You will establish Your bfaithfulness." 3 "I have made a covenant with aMy chosen; I have bsworn to David My servant, 4 I will establish your aseed forever And build up your bthrone to all generations." Selah. 5 The aheavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord; Your faithfulness also bin the assembly of the choly ones. 6 For awho in the skies is comparable to the Lord? Who among the bsons of the mighty is like the Lord, 7 A God agreatly feared in the council of the bholy ones, And cawesome above all those who are around Him? 8 O Lord God of hosts, awho is like You, O mighty Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You. 9 You rule the swelling of the sea; When its waves rise, You astill them. 10 You Yourself crushed aRahab like one who is slain; You bscattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm. 11 The aheavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The bworld and all it contains, You have founded them. 12 The anorth and the south, You have created them; bTabor and cHermon dshout for joy at Your name. 13 You have a strong arm; Your hand is mighty, Your aright hand is exalted. 14 aRighteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; bLovingkindness and truth go before You. 15 How blessed are the people who know the ajoyful sound! O Lord, they walk in the blight of Your countenance. 16 In aYour name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted. 17 For You are the glory of atheir strength, And by Your favor our bhorn is exalted. 18 For our ashield belongs to the Lord, And our king to the bHoly One of Israel. 19 Once You spoke in vision to Your godly ones, And said, "I have given help to one who is amighty; I have exalted one bchosen from the people. 20 "I have afound David My servant; With My holy boil I have anointed him, 21 With whom aMy hand will be established; My arm also will bstrengthen him. 22 "The enemy will not deceive him, Nor the ason of wickedness afflict him. 23 "But I shall acrush his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him. 24 "My afaithfulness and My lovingkindness will be with him, And in My name his bhorn will be exalted. 25 "I shall also set his hand aon the sea And his right hand on the rivers. 26 "He will cry to Me, 'You are amy Father, My God, and the brock of my salvation.' 27 "I also shall make him My afirstborn, The bhighest of the kings of the earth. 28 "My alovingkindness I will keep for him forever, And My bcovenant shall be confirmed to him. 29 "So I will establish his adescendants forever And his bthrone cas the days of heaven. 30 "If his sons aforsake My law And do not walk in My judgments, 31 If they violate My statutes And do not keep My commandments, 32 Then I will punish their transgression with the arod And their iniquity with stripes. 33 "But I will not break off aMy lovingkindness from him, Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness. 34 "My acovenant I will not violate, Nor will I balter the utterance of My lips. 35 "Once I have asworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David. 36 "His adescendants shall endure forever And his bthrone cas the sun before Me. 37 "It shall be established forever alike the moon, And the bwitness in the sky is faithful." Selah. 38 But You have acast off and brejected, You have been full of wrath against Your canointed. 39 You have aspurned the covenant of Your servant; You have bprofaned chis crown in the dust. 40 You have abroken down all his walls; You have bbrought his strongholds to ruin. 41 aAll who pass along the way plunder him; He has become a breproach to his neighbors. 42 You have aexalted the right hand of his adversaries; You have bmade all his enemies rejoice. 43 You also turn back the edge of his sword And have anot made him stand in battle. 44 You have made his asplendor to cease And cast his throne to the ground. 45 You have ashortened the days of his youth; You have bcovered him with shame. Selah. 46 aHow long, O Lord? Will You hide Yourself forever? Will Your bwrath burn like fire? 47 aRemember what my span of life is; For what bvanity You have created all the sons of men! 48 What man can live and not asee death? Can he bdeliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah. 49 Where are Your former lovingkindnesses, O Lord, Which You aswore to David in Your faithfulness? 50 Remember, O Lord, the areproach of Your servants; How I bear in my bosom the reproach of all the many peoples, 51 With which aYour enemies have reproached, O Lord, With which they have reproached the footsteps of bYour anointed. 52 aBlessed be the Lord forever! Amen and Amen.
