Psalm 89:1-8 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
Perplexity about God’s Promises
A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite.
1 I will sing about the Lord’s faithful love forever;
I will proclaim Your faithfulness to all generations
with my mouth.
2 For I will declare,
“Faithful love is built up forever;
You establish Your faithfulness in the heavens.”
3 The Lord said,
“I have made a covenant with My chosen one;
I have sworn an oath to David My servant:
4 ‘I will establish your offspring forever
and build up your throne for all generations.’”Selah
5 Lord, the heavens praise Your wonders—
Your faithfulness also—
in the assembly of the holy ones.
6 For who in the skies can compare with the Lord?
Who among the heavenly beings is like the Lord?
7 God is greatly feared in the council of the holy ones,
more awe-inspiring than all who surround Him.
8 Lord God of Hosts,
who is strong like You, Lord?
Your faithfulness surrounds You.
