A Contemplation of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.
For I have said, "Mercy shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens."
"I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David:
'Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations.' " Selah
And the heavens will praise Your wonders, O Lord; Your faithfulness also in the assembly of the saints.
For who in the heavens can be compared to the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty can be likened to the Lord?
God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, And to be held in reverence by all those around Him.
O Lord God of hosts, Who is mighty like You, O Lord? Your faithfulness also surrounds You.
You rule the raging of the sea; When its waves rise, You still them.
You have broken Rahab in pieces, as one who is slain; You have scattered Your enemies with Your mighty arm.
The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all its fullness, You have founded them.
