Psalms 89:19

Context

89:19 Then you 1  spoke through a vision to your faithful followers 2  and said:

“I have energized a warrior; 3 

I have raised up a young man 4  from the people.

Psalms 89:27

Context

89:27 I will appoint him to be my firstborn son, 5 

the most exalted of the earth’s kings.

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

2 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).

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

4 tn Or perhaps “a chosen one.”

5 sn The firstborn son typically had special status and received special privileges.
