2 For I say, "Forever [your] loyal love is built up. [The] heavens you have established [with] your faithfulness in them." 2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
3 "I made a covenant with my chosen one; I swore [an oath] to David my servant: 3 You said, "I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant,
