Maskhil [Contemplative poem] of Ethan the Ezrachi [as arising out of the soil].
1I will sing of the mercies of the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] forever: with my mouth will I make known youri faithfulness to all generations.
2For I have said, Mercy shall be built up forever: youri faithfulness shall youi establish in the very heavens.
3I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David [Beloved] my servant,
4Your2s seed will I establish forever, and build up youri throne to all generations. Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
5And the heavens shall praise youri wonders, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]: youri faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.
6For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]? [who] among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]?
7God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all [them that are] about him.
8O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], who [is] a strong Lord- Yah [Behold The Hand] (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) like unto youi? or to youri faithfulness round about youi?
9youi rule the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, youi stillest them.
10youi have broken Rachav (Violence) in pieces, as one that is slain; youi have scattered youri enemies with youri strong arm.
11The heavens [are] yoursi, the earth also [is] yoursi: [as for] the world and the fullness thereof, youi have founded them.
12The north and the south youi have created them: Tavor [Mound] and Hermon [A Sanctuary] shall rejoice in youri name.
13youi have a mighty arm: strong is youri hand, [and] high is youri right hand.
14Justice and judgment [are] the habitation of youri throne: mercy and tshall go before youri face.
15Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [is] the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate], in the light of youri Countenance (Face, appearance; show favor).
16In youri name shall they rejoice all the day: and in youri righteousness shall they be exalted.
17For youi [are] the glory of their strength: and in youri favour our horn shall be exalted.
18For the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] [is] our defense; and the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel of God] [is] our king.
19Then youi spoke in vision to youri holy one, and said, I have laid help upon [one that is] mighty; I have exalted [one] chosen out of the people.
20I have found David [Beloved] my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him:
21With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.
22The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.
23And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.
24But my faithfulness and my mercy [shall be] with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
25I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.
26He shall cry unto me, youi [are] my father, my God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], and the Rock of my Salvation.
27Also I will make him [my] firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
28My mercy will I keep for him forevermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
29His seed also will I make [to endure] forever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
30If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
31If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
32Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
33Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
34My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
35Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David [Beloved].
36His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me.
37It shall be established forever as the moon, and [as] a faithful witness in heaven. Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
38But youi have cast off and abhorred, youi have been exceedingly angry with youri anointed.
39youi have made void the covenant of youri servant: youi have profaned his crown [by casting it] to the ground.
40youi have broken down all his hedges; youi have brought his strong holds to ruin.
41All that pass by the way spoil (plunder; prey; booty) him: he is a reproach (disgrace; shame) to his neighbours.
42youi have set up the right hand of his adversaries; youi have made all his enemies to rejoice.
43youi have also turned the edge of his sword, and have not made him to stand in the battle.
44youi have made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.
45The days of his youth have youi shortened: youi have covered him with shame. Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
46How long, Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]? will youi hide yourself forever? shall youri wrath burn like fire?
47Remember how short my time is: wherefore have youi made all men in vain?
48What man [is he that] lives, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah [stop and diligently consider what was just said].
49Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things], where [are] youri former lovingkindnesses, [which] youi swore unto David [Beloved] in youri truth?
50Remember, Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things], the reproach (disgrace; shame) of youri servants; [how] I do bear in my bosom [the reproach (disgrace; shame) of] all the mighty people;
51Wherewith youri enemies have reproached, O Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of youri anointed.
52Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [be] the Lord-Yehōvah [Messiah Pre-Incarnate] forevermore. Amen, and Amen.
