Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"It shall be established forever like the moon, And the witness in the sky is faithful." Selah.

King James Bible
It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
like the moon, established forever, a faithful witness in the sky." Selah
Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

it shall. That is, as long as the sun and moon shall endure, as long as time shall last, his kingdom shall continue among men. The moon is probably termed a faithful witness, because by her, particularly, time is measured. Her decrease and increase are especially observed by every nation; and by these time is generally estimated, especially among eastern nations:--So many moons is a man old--so many moons since such an event happened; and even their years are reckoned by lunations. Or, the rainbow may be intended; that faithful sign which God has established in the clouds, that the earth shall no more be destroyed by water.
