Psalms 89:19 Once you spoke
in a vision, to your faithful people you said: "I have bestowed strength
on a warrior; I have exalted a young man from among the people
20 I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him
21 My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him
22 No enemy will subject him to tribute; no wicked man will oppress him
23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries
24 My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn will be exalted
25 I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers
| Living Bible: He will
hold sway from the Euphrates to the Mediterranean Sea
In Exodus 23:31, however, God promises Moses: "I will establish your borders from the Red Sea to the Sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the River. I will hand over to you the people who live in the land and you will drive them out before you.
In other words, the sea referred to in Psalm 89 could be both or the either of the two.
26 He will call out to me, 'You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.
27 I will also appoint him my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth
28 I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail
29 I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure
30 "If his sons forsake my law and do not follow my statutes
31 If they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands
32 I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging
33 But I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness
34 I will not violate my covenant or alter what my lips have uttered
35 Once for all, I have sworn by my holiness--and I will not lie to David-
36 That his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun
37 It will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky." <Selah
