   1: Maschil of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.
   2: For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness wilt thou establish in the very heavens.
   3: I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn to David my servant,
   4: Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah.
   5: And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O LORD; thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
   6: For who in the heaven can be compared to the LORD? [who] among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the LORD?
   7: God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence by all [them that are] about him.
   8: O LORD God of hosts, who [is] a strong LORD like to thee? or to thy faithfulness around thee?
   9: Thou rulest the raging of the sea: when its waves arise, thou stillest them.
   10: Thou hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; thou hast scattered thy enemies with thy strong arm.
   11: The heavens [are] thine, the earth also [is] thine: [as for] the world, and the fullness of it, thou hast founded them.
   12: The north and the south thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.
   13: Thou hast a mighty arm: strong is thy hand, [and] high is thy right hand.
   14: Justice and judgment [are] the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
   15: Blessed [are] the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
   16: In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.
   17: For thou [art] the glory of their strength: and in thy favor our horn shall be exalted.
   18: For the LORD [is] our defense; and the Holy One of Israel [is] our king.
   19: Then thou didst speak in vision to thy holy one, and say, I have laid help upon [one that is] mighty; 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: my arm also shall strengthen him.
   22: The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
   23: And I will beat down his foes before his face, and afflict them that hate him.
   24: But my faithfulness and my mercy [shall be] with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
   25: I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
   26: He shall cry to me, Thou [art] my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
   27: Also I will make him [my] first-born, higher than the kings of the earth.
   28: My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
   29: His seed also will I make [to endure] for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
   30: If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
   31: If they break 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 suffer my faithfulness to fail.
   34: My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that hath gone out of my lips.
   35: Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie to 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 [as] a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
   38: But thou hast cast off and abhorred, thou hast been wroth with thy anointed.
   39: Thou hast made void the covenant of thy servant: thou hast profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
   40: Thou hast broken down all his hedges; thou hast brought his strong holds to ruin.
   41: All that pass by the way plunder him: he is a reproach to his neighbors.
   42: Thou hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
   43: Thou hast also turned the edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand in the battle.
   44: Thou hast made his glory 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, LORD, wilt thou hide thyself? for ever? shall thy wrath burn like fire?
   47: Remember how short my time is: why hast thou made all men in vain?
   48: What man [is he that] liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.
   49: Lord, where [are] thy former loving-kindnesses, [which] thou didst swear to David in thy truth?
   50: Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants; [how] I do bear in my bosom [the reproach of] all the mighty people;
   51: With which thy enemies have reproached, O LORD; with which they have reproached the footsteps of thy anointed
   52: Blessed [be] the LORD for evermore. Amen and amen.
