Psalms 89:3


89:3 The Lord said, 1 

“I have made a covenant with my chosen one;

I have made a promise on oath to David, my servant:

Psalms 89:7


89:7 a God who is honored 2  in the great angelic assembly, 3 

and more awesome than 4  all who surround him?

Psalms 89:19


89:19 Then you 5  spoke through a vision to your faithful followers 6  and said:

“I have energized a warrior; 7 

I have raised up a young man 8  from the people.

1 tn The words “the Lord said” are supplied in the translation for clarification. It is clear that the words of vv. 3-4 are spoken by the Lord, in contrast to vv. 1-2, which are spoken by the psalmist.

2 tn Heb “feared.”

3 tn Heb “in the great assembly of the holy ones.”

4 tn Or perhaps “feared by.”

5 tn The pronoun “you” refers to the Lord, who is addressed here. The quotation that follows further develops the announcement of vv. 3-4.

6 tc Many medieval mss read the singular here, “your faithful follower.” In this case the statement refers directly to Nathan’s oracle to David (see 2 Sam 7:17).

7 tn Heb “I have placed help upon a warrior.”

8 tn Or perhaps “a chosen one.”
