with my mouth I will make known your kfaithfulness to all generations.
2 For I said, j“Steadfast love will be built up forever;
I have osworn to David my servant:
4 ‘I will establish your poffspring forever,
and build your qthrone for all generations.’” Selah
your faithfulness in the assembly of tthe holy ones!
6 For uwho in the skies can be compared to the Lord?
and awesome above all wwho are around him?
when its waves rise, you zstill them.
you cscattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
11 dThe heavens are yours; the earth also is yours;
12 gThe north and the south, you have created them;
14 kRighteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
lsteadfast love and faithfulness go before you.
15 Blessed are the people who know mthe festal shout,
who walk, O Lord, in nthe light of your face,
16 who exult in your oname all the day
and in your righteousness are pexalted.
17 For you are qthe glory of their strength;
by your favor our rhorn is exalted.
18 For our sshield belongs to the Lord,
our king to tthe Holy One of Israel.
I have exalted one xchosen from the people.
20 yI have found David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have zanointed him,
21 so that my ahand shall be established with him;
bthe wicked shall not humble him.
23 I will ccrush his foes before him
and in my name shall his ehorn be exalted.
25 I will set his hand on fthe sea
and his right hand on fthe rivers.
26 He shall cry to me, ‘You are my gFather,
my God, and hthe Rock of my salvation.’
27 And I will make him the ifirstborn,
jthe highest of the kings of the earth.
29 I will establish his loffspring forever
30 nIf his children forsake my law
and do not walk according to my rules,5
32 then I will punish their transgression with othe rod
34 I will not violate my kcovenant
35 Once for all I have sworn pby my holiness;
I will not qlie to David.
36 His loffspring shall endure forever,
37 Like sthe moon it shall be established forever,
ta faithful witness in the skies.” Selah
38 But now you have ucast off and rejected;
you are full of wrath against your vanointed.
40 You have abreached all his walls;
41 aAll who pass by plunder him;
he has become bthe scorn of his neighbors.
45 You have cut short cthe days of his youth;
you have dcovered him with shame. Selah
46 eHow long, O Lord? Will you hide yourself forever?
How long will your wrath fburn like fire?
Who can deliver his soul from the power of lSheol? Selah
49 Lord, where is your msteadfast love of old,

5 Whoever slanders his neighbor msecretly
I will ndestroy.

5 Remember the zwondrous works that he has done,
his miracles, and athe judgments he uttered,
6 O offspring of bAbraham, his servant,
children of Jacob, his cchosen ones!
his djudgments are in all the earth.
8 He eremembers his covenant forever,
the word that he commanded, for fa thousand generations,
9 gthe covenant that he made with Abraham,
his hsworn promise to Isaac,
10 which he confirmed to iJacob as a statute,
11 saying, j“To you I will give the land of Canaan
as kyour portion for an inheritance.”
12 When they were lfew in number,
of little account, and msojourners in it,
14 he nallowed no one to oppress them;
he orebuked kings on their account,
15 saying, p“Touch not my anointed ones,
16 When he qsummoned a famine on the land
17 he had ssent a man ahead of them,
Joseph, who was tsold as a slave.
18 His ufeet were hurt with fetters;
19 until vwhat he had said came to pass,
the word of the Lord wtested him.
21 he zmade him lord of his house
22 to bind2 his princes at his pleasure
23 Then aIsrael came to Egypt;
24 And the Lord dmade his people very fruitful
25 He eturned their hearts to hate his people,
to fdeal craftily with his servants.
26 He gsent Moses, his servant,
and Aaron, hwhom he had chosen.
27 iThey performed his signs among them
and miracles in cthe land of Ham.
28 He jsent darkness, and made the land dark;
and lcaused their fish to die.
even in mthe chambers of their kings.
31 He spoke, and there came nswarms of flies,
oand gnats throughout their country.
and fiery plightning bolts through their land.
and qshattered the trees of their country.
34 He spoke, and the rlocusts came,
36 He sstruck down all the firstborn in their land,
sthe firstfruits of all their strength.
37 Then he brought out Israel with tsilver and gold,
38 uEgypt was glad when they departed,
for vdread of them had fallen upon it.
39 He wspread a cloud for a covering,
and gave them zbread from heaven in abundance.
41 He opened the rock, and awater gushed out;
it flowed through bthe desert like a river.
42 For he cremembered his holy promise,
and dAbraham, his servant.
44 And he fgave them the lands of the nations,
45 that they might gkeep his statutes
and hobserve his laws.
iPraise the Lord!
all ythe hardships he endured,
4 I will not bgive sleep to my eyes
5 until I cfind a place for the Lord,
a dwelling place for athe Mighty One of Jacob.”
6 Behold, we heard of it in dEphrathah;

and let your msaints shout for joy.
11 pThe Lord swore to David a sure oath
qfrom which he will not turn back:

13 For the Lord has tchosen Zion;
he has udesired it for his dwelling place:
14 “This is my vresting place forever;
here I will wdwell, for I have desired it.
15 I will abundantly xbless her provisions;
I will ysatisfy her poor with bread.
16 Her zpriests I will clothe with salvation,
and her zsaints will shout for joy.
17 There I will make aa horn to sprout for David;
18 His enemies I will dclothe with shame,
