   1: (An instruction. Of Ethan the Ezrahite.) I will sing of the loving-kindness of Jehovah for ever; with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness from generation to generation.
   2: For I said, Loving-kindness shall be built up for ever; in the very heavens wilt thou establish thy faithfulness.
   3: I have made a covenant with mine elect, I have sworn unto David my servant:
   4: Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne from generation to generation. Selah.
   5: And the heavens shall celebrate thy wonders, O Jehovah, and thy faithfulness in the congregation of the saints.
   6: For who in the heaven can be compared to Jehovah? [who] among the sons of the mighty shall be likened to Jehovah?
   7: God is greatly to be feared in the council of the saints, and terrible for all that are round about him.
   8: Jehovah, God of hosts, who is like unto thee, the strong Jah? And thy faithfulness is round about thee.
   9: Thou rulest the pride of the sea: when its waves arise, thou stillest them.
   10: Thou hast crushed Rahab as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thine enemies with the arm of thy strength.
   11: Thine are the heavens, the earth also is thine; the world and its fulness, thou hast founded them.
   12: The north and the south, thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon triumph in thy name.
   13: Thine is the arm of might: strong is thy hand, high is thy right hand.
   14: Righteousness and judgment are the foundation of thy throne; loving-kindness and truth go before thy face.
   15: Blessed is the people that know the shout of joy: they walk, O Jehovah, in the light of thy countenance.
   16: In thy name are they joyful all the day, and in thy righteousness are they exalted.
   17: For thou art the glory of their strength; and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.
   18: For Jehovah is our shield, and the Holy One of Israel, our king.
   19: Then thou spakest in vision of thy Holy One, and saidst, I have laid help upon a mighty one; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.
   20: I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:
   21: With whom my hand shall be established; and mine arm shall strengthen him.
   22: No enemy shall exact upon him, nor the son of wickedness afflict him;
   23: But I will beat down his adversaries before his face, and will smite them that hate him.
   24: And my faithfulness and my loving-kindness shall be with him, and by my name shall his horn be exalted.
   25: And I will set his hand in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
   26: He shall call unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation;
   27: And as to me, I will make him firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth.
   28: My loving-kindness will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him;
   29: And I will establish his seed for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
   30: If his sons forsake my law, and walk not in mine ordinances;
   31: If they profane my statutes, and keep not my commandments:
   32: Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
   33: Nevertheless my loving-kindness will I not utterly take from him, nor belie my faithfulness;
   34: My covenant will I not profane, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
   35: Once have I sworn by my holiness; I will not lie unto David:
   36: His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me;
   37: It shall be established for ever as the moon, and the witness in the sky is firm. Selah.
   38: But thou hast rejected and cast off; thou hast been very wroth with thine anointed:
   39: Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant; thou hast profaned his crown to the ground:
   40: Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.
   41: All that pass by the way plunder him; he is become a reproach to his neighbours.
   42: Thou hast exalted the right hand of his oppressors; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice:
   43: Yea, thou hast turned back the edge of his sword, and hast not made him stand in the battle.
   44: Thou hast made his brightness to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground;
   45: The days of his youth hast thou shortened; thou hast covered him with shame. Selah.
   46: How long, Jehovah, wilt thou hide thyself for ever? shall thy fury burn like fire?
   47: Remember, as regards me, what life is. Wherefore hast thou created all the children of men to be vanity?
   48: What man liveth, and shall not see death? Shall he deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.
   49: Where, Lord, are thy former loving-kindnesses, [which] thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness?
   50: Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants -- that I bear in my bosom [that of] all the mighty peoples --
   51: Wherewith thine enemies, O Jehovah, have reproached, wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
   52: Blessed be Jehovah for evermore! Amen, and Amen.
