Yahweh and David (Ps 89:3-89:4)

“You said.

‘I have made a covenant with my chosen one.

I have sworn to my servant David.

‘I will establish your descendants forever.

I will build your throne for all generations.’”


This psalmist recalls the words of Yahweh. He had made a covenant with David. Notice that the covenant is not longer with Abraham or Moses. David was going to have descendants forever so that his throne could continue into the future. This section ends with the musical interlude meditative pause of Selah.
