   1: My song will be of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make his faith clear to all generations.
   2: For you have said, Mercy will be made strong for ever; my faith will be unchanging in the heavens.
   3: I have made an agreement with the man of my selection, I have made an oath to David my servant;
   4: I will make your seed go on for ever, your kingdom will be strong through all generations. (Selah.)
   5: In heaven let them give praise for your wonders, O Lord; and your unchanging faith among the saints.
   6: For who is there in the heavens in comparison with the Lord? who is like the Lord among the sons of the gods?
   7: God is greatly to be feared among the saints, and to be honoured over all those who are about him.
   8: O Lord God of armies, who is strong like you, O Jah? and your unchanging faith is round about you.
   9: You have rule over the sea in storm; when its waves are troubled, you make them calm.
   10: Rahab was crushed by you like one wounded to death; with your strong arm you put to flight all your haters.
   11: Yours are the heavens, and the earth is yours; you have made the world, and everything which is in it.
   12: You have made the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon are sounding with joy at your name.
   13: Yours is an arm of power; strong is your hand and high your right hand.
   14: The seat of your kingdom is resting on righteousness and right judging: mercy and good faith come before your face.
   15: Happy are the people who have knowledge of the holy cry: the light of your face, O Lord, will be shining on their way.
   16: In your name will they have joy all the day: in your righteousness will they be lifted up.
   17: For you are the glory of their strength; in your pleasure will our horn be lifted up.
   18: For our breastplate is the Lord; and our king is the Holy One of Israel's.
   19: Then your voice came to your holy one in a vision, saying, I have put the crown on a strong one, lifting up one taken from among the people.
   20: I have made discovery of David my servant; I have put my holy oil on his head.
   21: My hand will be his support; my arm will give him strength.
   22: The deceit of those who are against him will not overcome him; he will not be troubled by the sons of evil.
   23: I will have those who are against him broken before his face, and his haters will be crushed under my blows.
   24: But my faith and my mercy will be with him; and in my name will his horn be lifted up.
   25: I will put his hand in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
   26: He will say to me, You are my father, my God, and the Rock of my salvation.
   27: And I will make him the first of my sons, most high over the kings of the earth.
   28: I will keep my mercy for him for ever; my agreement with him will not be changed.
   29: His seed will keep their place for ever; his kingdom will be eternal, like the heavens.
   30: If his children give up my law, and are not ruled by my decisions;
   31: If my rules are broken, and my orders are not kept;
   32: Then I will send punishment on them for their sin; my rod will be the reward of their evil-doing.
   33: But I will not take away my mercy from him, and will not be false to my faith.
   34: I will be true to my agreement; the things which have gone out of my lips will not be changed.
   35: I have made an oath once by my holy name, that I will not be false to David.
   36: His seed will not come to an end for ever; the seat of his kingdom will be like the sun before me.
   37: It will be fixed for ever like the moon; and the witness in heaven is true. (Selah.)
   38: But you have put him away in disgust; you have been angry with the king of your selection.
   39: You have made your agreement with your servant of no effect: you have had no respect for his crown, it has come down even to the earth.
   40: All his walls are broken down; you have given his strong towers to destruction.
   41: All those who come by take away his goods; he is laughed at by his neighbours.
   42: You have given power to the right hand of his haters; you have made glad all those who are against him.
   43: His sword is turned back; you have not been his support in the fight.
   44: You have put an end to his glory: the seat of his kingdom has been levelled to the earth.
   45: You have made him old before his time; he is covered with shame. (Selah.)
   46: How long, O Lord, will you Keep yourself for ever from our eyes? how long will your wrath be burning like fire?
   47: See how short my time is; why have you made all men for no purpose?
   48: What man now living will not see death? will he be able to keep back his soul from the underworld? (Selah.)
   49: Lord, where are your earlier mercies? where is the oath which you made to David in unchanging faith?
   50: Keep in mind, O Lord, the shame of your servants, and how the bitter words of all the people have come into my heart;
   51: The bitter words of your haters, O Lord, shaming the footsteps of your king.
   52: Let the Lord be praised for ever. So be it, So be it.
