Psalm 89

Misericordias Domini
1
My song shall be always of the loving-kindness of the Lord; *
with my mouth will I ever be proclaiming your faithfulness, from one generation to another.
2
For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up for ever; *
your faithfulness shall be established in the heavens.”
3
I have made a covenant with my chosen one; *
I have sworn to David my servant:
4
“Your seed will I establish for ever, *
and set up your throne from one generation to another.”
Misericordias Domini
19
You spoke in a vision to your saints, and said, *
“I have set the crown upon one who 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
My hand shall hold him fast, *
and my arm shall strengthen him.
22
The enemy shall not be able to do him violence; *
the son of wickedness shall not hurt him.
23
I will smite his foes before his face *
and strike down those who hate him.
24
My faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him, *
and in my Name shall his horn be exalted.
25
I will give him dominion over the sea, *
and with his right hand shall he rule the rivers.
26
He shall say to me, “You are my Father, *
my God and the rock of my salvation.”
27
And I will make him my firstborn, *
higher than the kings of the earth.
28
My mercy will I keep for him for ever, *
and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
29
His seed will I make to endure for ever *
and his throne as the days of heaven.
