I will not violate my covenant or alter what my lips have uttered.135
Once for all, I have sworn by my holiness-- and I will not lie to David--
that his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun;237
it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky."3 "Selah"
But you have rejected,4 you have spurned, you have been very angry with your anointed one.
You have renounced the covenant with your servant and have defiled his crown in the dust.540
You have broken through all his walls6 and reduced his strongholds7 to ruins.
All who pass by have plundered8 him; he has become the scorn of his neighbors.942
You have exalted the right hand of his foes; you have made all his enemies rejoice.1043
You have turned back the edge of his sword and have not supported him in battle.1144
You have put an end to his splendor and cast his throne to the ground.
