In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 89:1-52, the psalm continues saying, 89:17 For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted. 89:18 For our shield belongs to the Lord, And our king to the Holy One of Israel. 89:19 Once You spoke in vision to Your godly ones, And said, ‘I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people. (NASB) What vision did the Lord speak unto the godly ones? The Lord God states, 89:31 If they violate My statutes And do not keep My commandments, 89:32 Then I will punish their transgression with the rod And their iniquity with stripes. 89:33 ‘But I will not break off My lovingkindness from him, Nor deal falsely in My faithfulness. 89:34 ‘My covenant I will not violate, Nor will I alter the utterance of My lips. 89:35 ‘Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David. 89:36 ‘His descendants shall endure forever And his throne as the sun before Me. (NASB) It is important to remember that though we are in a covenant relationship with the Lord, the Lord will punish transgression. Though a person commits a transgression, if he repents, the Lord will remain faithful to His covenant. What does it mean that He swears to His holiness? Read more here: Tehillim 98-Part1B
