Psalm 89:27-29 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

27 He shall cry to me, ‘You are my father,
    my God, the Rock of my salvation!’
28 I myself make him the firstborn,
    Most High[a] over the kings of the earth.
29 Forever I will maintain my mercy for him;
    my covenant with him stands firm.


  1. 89:28 Most High: a divine title, which is here extended to David as God’s own king, cf. Ps 2:7–9; Is 9:5. As God rules over the members of the heavenly council (Ps 89:6–9), so David, God’s surrogate, rules over earthly kings.
