|New International Version (© 2011)|
And I will appoint him to be my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth.
King James Bible
Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
American Standard Version
I also will make him my first-born, The highest of the kings of the earth.
Young's Literal Translation
I also first-born do appoint him, Highest of the kings of the earth.
Psalm 89:27 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I will make him my first-born - I will deal with him as a father by his first-born son, to whom a double portion of possessions and honors belong. First-born. is not always to be understood literally in Scripture. It often signifies simply a well-beloved, or best-beloved son; one preferred to all the rest, and distinguished by some eminent prerogative. Thus God calls Israel his son, his first-born, Exodus 4:22. See also Sirach 36:12. And even Ephraim is called God's first-born, Jeremiah 31:9. In the same sense it is sometimes applied even to Jesus Christ himself, to signify his supereminent dignity; not the eternal Sonship of his Divine nature, as inveterate prejudice and superficial thinking have supposed.
