The steadfast love of Yahweh (Ps 89:1-89:2)

A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite

“I will sing of your steadfast love forever!

Yahweh!

With my mouth,

I will proclaim your faithfulness

To all generations.

I declare that

Your steadfast love was established forever.

Your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.”

Psalm 89 is a long psalm proclaiming the faithfulness of God. This psalm is not from David, but rather from Ethan the Ezrahite. Ethan was one of the 4 wise sons of Mahol mentioned in 1 Kings, chapter 4, who was not quite as wise as Solomon. This long psalm begins with the psalmist singing about the steadfast love of Yahweh. This wise psalmist will proclaim the faithfulness of Yahweh for all generations to hear. Yahweh’s love lasts forever. His everlasting faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.
