The Lord Gives Dominion to the King.

A Psalm of David.

110 (A)The Lord says to my Lord:
(B)Sit at My right hand
Until I make (C)Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”
The Lord will stretch out Your strong (D)scepter from Zion, saying,
(E)Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”
Your (F)people [a]will volunteer freely on the day of Your [b]power;
(G)In [c]holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn,
[d]Your youth are to You as the (H)dew.

(I)The Lord has sworn and will (J)not [e]change His mind,
“You are a (K)priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”
The Lord is (L)at Your right hand;
He [f]will (M)shatter kings in the (N)day of His wrath.
He will (O)judge among the nations,
He [g]will fill them with (P)corpses,
He [h]will (Q)shatter the [i]chief men over a broad country.
He will (R)drink from the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He will (S)lift up His head.

The Lord Praised for His Goodness.

111 [j]Praise [k]the Lord!
I (T)will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart,
In the (U)company of the upright and in the assembly.
(V)Great are the works of the Lord;
They are [l](W)studied by all who delight in them.
[m](X)Splendid and majestic is His work,
And (Y)His righteousness endures forever.
He has caused His [n]wonders [o]to be remembered;
The Lord is (Z)gracious and compassionate.
He has (AA)given [p]food to those who [q]fear Him;
He will (AB)remember His covenant forever.
He has made known to His people the power of His works,
In giving them the inheritance of the nations.

The works of His hands are [r](AC)truth and justice;
All His precepts (AD)are trustworthy.
They are (AE)upheld forever and ever;
They are performed in [s](AF)truth and uprightness.
He has sent (AG)redemption to His people;
He has [t]ordained His covenant forever;
(AH)Holy and [u]awesome is His name.
10 The [v](AI)fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
All those who [w]follow (AJ)His commandments have a good understanding;
His (AK)praise endures forever.

Prosperity of One Who Fears the Lord.

112 [x]Praise [y]the Lord!
(AL)Blessed is a person who [z]fears the Lord,
Who greatly (AM)delights in His commandments.
His [aa](AN)descendants will be mighty [ab]on the earth;
The generation of the (AO)upright will be blessed.
(AP)Wealth and riches are in his house,
And his righteousness endures forever.
Light shines in the darkness (AQ)for the upright;
He is (AR)gracious, compassionate, and righteous.
It goes well for a person who (AS)is gracious and lends;
He will [ac]maintain his cause in judgment.
For he will (AT)never be shaken;
The (AU)righteous will be [ad]remembered forever.

He will not fear (AV)bad news;
His (AW)heart is steadfast, (AX)trusting in the Lord.
His (AY)heart is firm, he (AZ)will not fear,
[ae]But will (BA)look with satisfaction on his enemies.
[af]He (BB)has given freely to the poor,
His righteousness endures forever;
His (BC)horn will be exalted in honor.

10 The (BD)wicked will see it and be [ag]vexed,
He will (BE)gnash his teeth and (BF)melt away;
The (BG)desire of the wicked will perish.
