Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: "I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have exalted a young man from among the people.
I have found David1 my servant;2 with my sacred oil3 I have anointed4 him.
My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him.522
No enemy will subject him to tribute;6 no wicked man will oppress7 him.
I will crush his foes before him8 and strike down his adversaries.924
My faithful love will be with him,10 and through my name his horna will be exalted.
I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers.1126
He will call out to me, 'You are my Father,12 my God, the Rock13 my Savior.'1427
I will also appoint him my firstborn,15 the most exalted16 of the kings17 of the earth.
I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail.1829
I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure.19
