[The LORD said,] "I have made a covenant with My chosen one; I have sworn an oath to David My servant:
'I will establish your offspring forever and build up your throne for all generations.' " Selah
LORD, the heavens praise Your wonders-- Your faithfulness also-- in the assembly of the holy ones.
For who in the skies can compare with the LORD? Who among the heavenly beings is like the LORD?
God is greatly feared in the council of the holy ones, more awe-inspiring than all who surround Him.
LORD God of Hosts, who is strong like You, LORD? Your faithfulness surrounds You.
You rule the raging sea; when its waves surge, You still them.
You crushed Rahab like one who is slain; You scattered Your enemies with Your powerful arm.
The heavens are Yours; the earth also is Yours. The world and everything in it-- You founded them.
North and south-- You created them. Tabor and Hermon shout for joy at Your name.
You have a mighty arm; Your hand is powerful; Your right hand is lifted high.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; faithful love and truth go before You.
Happy are the people who know the joyful shout; LORD, they walk in the light of Your presence.
They rejoice in Your name all day long, and they are exalted by Your righteousness.
For You are their magnificent strength; by Your favor our horn is exalted.
Surely our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.
