   1: An instruction, by Ethan the Ezrahite. Of the kind acts of Jehovah, to the age I sing, To all generations I make known Thy faithfulness with my mouth,
   2: For I said, 'To the age is kindness built, The heavens! Thou dost establish Thy faithfulness in them.'
   3: I have made a covenant for My chosen, I have sworn to David My servant:
   4: 'Even to the age do I establish thy seed, And have built to generation and generation thy throne. Selah.
   5: and the heavens confess Thy wonders, O Jehovah, Thy faithfulness also [is] in an assembly of holy ones.
   6: For who in the sky, Compareth himself to Jehovah? Is like to Jehovah among sons of the mighty?
   7: God is very terrible, In the secret counsel of His holy ones, And fearful over all surrounding Him.
   8: O Jehovah, God of Hosts, Who [is] like Thee -- a strong Jah? And Thy faithfulness [is] round about Thee.
   9: Thou [art] ruler over the pride of the sea, In the lifting up of its billows Thou dost restrain them.
   10: Thou hast bruised Rahab, as one wounded. With the arm of Thy strength Thou hast scattered Thine enemies.
   11: Thine [are] the heavens -- the earth also [is] Thine, The habitable world and its fulness, Thou hast founded them.
   12: North and south Thou hast appointed them, Tabor and Hermon in Thy name do sing.
   13: Thou hast an arm with might, Strong is Thy hand -- high Thy right hand.
   14: Righteousness and judgment [Are] the fixed place of Thy throne, Kindness and truth go before Thy face.
   15: O the happiness of the people knowing the shout, O Jehovah, in the light of Thy face they walk habitually.
   16: In Thy name they rejoice all the day, And in Thy righteousness they are exalted,
   17: For the beauty of their strength [art] Thou, And in Thy good will is our horn exalted,
   18: For of Jehovah [is] our shield, And of the Holy One of Israel our king.
   19: Then Thou hast spoken in vision, To Thy saint, yea, Thou sayest, I have placed help upon a mighty one, Exalted a chosen one out of the people,
   20: I have found David My servant, With My holy oil I have anointed him.
   21: With whom My hand is established, My arm also doth strengthen him.
   22: An enemy exacteth not upon him, And a son of perverseness afflicteth him not.
   23: And I have beaten down before him his adversaries, And those hating him I plague,
   24: And My faithfulness and kindness [are] with him, And in My name is his horn exalted.
   25: And I have set on the sea his hand, And on the rivers his right hand.
   26: He proclaimeth me: 'Thou [art] my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation.'
   27: I also first-born do appoint him, Highest of the kings of the earth.
   28: To the age I keep for him My kindness, And My covenant [is] stedfast with him.
   29: And I have set his seed for ever, And his throne as the days of the heavens.
   30: If his sons forsake My law, And in My judgments do not walk;
   31: If My statutes they pollute, And My commands do not keep,
   32: I have looked after with a rod their transgression, And with strokes their iniquity,
   33: And My kindness I break not from him, Nor do I deal falsely in My faithfulness.
   34: I profane not My covenant, And that which is going forth from My lips I change not.
   35: Once I have sworn by My holiness, I lie not to David,
   36: His seed is to the age, And his throne [is] as the sun before Me,
   37: As the moon it is established -- to the age, And the witness in the sky is stedfast. Selah.
   38: And Thou, Thou hast cast off, and dost reject, Thou hast shown Thyself wroth With Thine anointed,
   39: Hast rejected the covenant of Thy servant, Thou hast polluted to the earth his crown,
   40: Thou hast broken down all his hedges, Thou hast made his fenced places a ruin.
   41: Spoiled him have all passing by the way, He hath been a reproach to his neighbours,
   42: Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries, Thou hast caused all his enemies to rejoice.
   43: Also -- Thou turnest back the sharpness of his sword, And hast not established him in battle,
   44: Hast caused [him] to cease from his brightness, And his throne to the earth hast cast down.
   45: Thou hast shortened the days of his youth, Hast covered him over [with] shame. Selah.
   46: Till when, O Jehovah, art Thou hidden? For ever doth Thy fury burn as fire?
   47: Remember, I pray Thee, what [is] life-time? Wherefore in vain hast Thou created All the sons of men?
   48: Who [is] the man that liveth, and doth not see death? He delivereth his soul from the hand of Sheol. Selah.
   49: Where [are] Thy former kindnesses, O Lord. Thou hast sworn to David in Thy faithfulness,
   50: Remember, O Lord, the reproach of Thy servants, I have borne in my bosom all the strivings of the peoples,
   51: Wherewith Thine enemies reproached, O Jehovah, Wherewith they have reproached The steps of Thine anointed.
   52: Blessed [is] Jehovah to the age. Amen, and amen!
