   1: (A contemplation by Ethan, the Ezrahite.) I will sing of the lovingkindness of Yahweh forever. With my mouth, I will make known your faithfulness to all generations.
   2: I indeed declare, "Love stands firm forever. You established the heavens. Your faithfulness is in them."
   3: "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David, my servant,
   4: 'I will establish your seed forever, And build up your throne to all generations.'" Selah.
   5: The heavens will praise your wonders, Yahweh; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the holy ones.
   6: For who in the skies can be compared to Yahweh? Who among the sons of the heavenly beings is like Yahweh,
   7: A very awesome God in the council of the holy ones, To be feared above all those who are around him?
   8: Yahweh, God of hosts, who is a mighty one, like you? Yah, your faithfulness is around you.
   9: You rule the pride of the sea. When its waves rise up, you calm them.
   10: You have broken Rahab in pieces, like one of the slain. You have scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
   11: The heavens are yours, the earth also is yours; The world and its fullness. You have founded them.
   12: The north and the south, you have created them. Tabor and Hermon rejoice in your name.
   13: You have a mighty arm. Your hand is strong, and your right hand is exalted.
   14: Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Lovingkindness and truth go before your face.
   15: Blessed are the people who learn to acclaim you. They walk in the light of your presence, Yahweh.
   16: In your name do they rejoice all day. In your righteousness, they are exalted.
   17: For you are the glory of their strength. In your favor, our horn will be exalted.
   18: For our shield belongs to Yahweh; Our king to the Holy One of Israel.
   19: Then you spoke in vision to your saints, And said, "I have bestowed strength on the warrior. I have exalted a young man from the people.
   20: I have found David, my servant. I have anointed him with my holy oil,
   21: With whom my hand shall be established. My arm will also strengthen him.
   22: No enemy will tax him. No wicked man will oppress him.
   23: I will beat down his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him.
   24: But my faithfulness and my lovingkindness will be with him. In my name, his horn will be exalted.
   25: I will set his hand also on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.
   26: He will call to me, 'You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation!'
   27: I will also appoint him my firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.
   28: I will keep my lovingkindness for him forevermore. My covenant will stand firm with him.
   29: I will also make his seed endure forever, And his throne as the days of heaven.
   30: If his children forsake my law, And don't walk in my ordinances;
   31: If they break my statutes, And don't keep my commandments;
   32: Then I will punish their sin with the rod, And their iniquity with stripes.
   33: But I will not completely take my lovingkindness from him, Nor allow my faithfulness to fail.
   34: I will not break my covenant, Nor alter what my lips have uttered.
   35: Once have I sworn by my holiness, I will not lie to David.
   36: His seed will endure forever, His throne like the sun before me.
   37: It will be established forever like the moon, The faithful witness in the sky." Selah.
   38: But you have rejected and spurned. You have been angry with your anointed.
   39: You have renounced the covenant of your servant. You have defiled his crown in the dust.
   40: You have broken down all his hedges. You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
   41: All who pass by the way rob him. He has become a reproach to his neighbors.
   42: You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries. You have made all of his enemies rejoice.
   43: Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword, And haven't supported him in battle.
   44: You have ended his splendor, And thrown his throne down to the ground.
   45: You have shortened the days of his youth. You have covered him with shame. Selah.
   46: How long, Yahweh? Will you hide yourself forever? Will your wrath burn like fire?
   47: Remember how short my time is! For what vanity have you created all the children of men!
   48: What man is he who shall live and not see death, Who shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah.
   49: Lord, where are your former lovingkindnesses, Which you swore to David in your faithfulness?
   50: Remember, Lord, the reproach of your servants, How I bear in my heart the taunts of all the mighty peoples,
   51: With which your enemies have mocked, Yahweh, With which they have mocked the footsteps of your anointed one.
   52: Blessed be Yahweh forevermore. Amen, and Amen.
