Bible: Ps 89:20-38
89:20 I have discovered David, my servant.
With my holy oil I have anointed him as king. 1
89:21 My hand will support him, 2
and my arm will strengthen him.
a violent oppressor will not be able to humiliate him. 5
89:23 I will crush his enemies before him;
I will strike down those who hate him.
89:24 He will experience my faithfulness and loyal love, 6
and by my name he will win victories. 7
89:25 I will place his hand over the sea,
his right hand over the rivers. 8
89:26 He will call out to me,
89:27 I will appoint him to be my firstborn son, 11
the most exalted of the earth’s kings.
89:28 I will always extend my loyal love to him,
and my covenant with him is secure. 12
89:29 I will give him an eternal dynasty, 13
and make his throne as enduring as the skies above. 14
89:30 If his sons reject my law
and disobey my regulations,
89:31 if they break 15 my rules
and do not keep my commandments,
89:32 I will punish their rebellion by beating them with a club, 16
their sin by inflicting them with bruises. 17
89:33 But I will not remove 18 my loyal love from him,
nor be unfaithful to my promise. 19
89:34 I will not break 20 my covenant
or go back on what I promised. 21
89:35 Once and for all I have vowed by my own holiness,
I will never deceive 22 David.
89:36 His dynasty will last forever. 23
His throne will endure before me, like the sun, 24
89:37 it will remain stable, like the moon, 25
his throne will endure like the skies.” 26 (Selah)
89:38 But you have spurned 27 and rejected him;
you are angry with your chosen king. 28
