Psalms Scripture Reading - Psalm 89:38-51 American Standard Version

But thou hast cast off and rejected,
Thou hast been wroth with thine anointed.
Thou hast abhorred the covenant of thy servant:
Thou hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.
Thou hast broken down all his hedges;
Thou hast brought his strongholds to ruin.
All that pass by the way rob him:
He is become a reproach to his neighbors.
Thou hast exalted the right hand of his adversaries;
Thou hast made all his enemies to rejoice.
Yea, thou turnest back the edge of his sword,
And hast not made him to stand in the battle.
Thou hast made his brightness to cease,
And cast his throne down to the ground.
The days of his youth hast thou shortened:
Thou hast covered him with shame. Selah
How long, O Jehovah? wilt thou hide thyself for ever?
How long shall thy wrath burn like fire?
Oh remember how short my time is:
For what vanity hast thou created all the children of men!
What man is he that shall live and not see death,
That shall deliver his soul from the power of Sheol? Selah
Lord, where are thy former lovingkindnesses,
Which thou swarest unto David in thy faithfulness?
Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants;
How I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty peoples,
Wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Jehovah,
Wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed.
