Sit at My Right Hand

A Psalm of David.

110 (A)The Lord says to my Lord:
    (B)“Sit at my right hand,
(C)until I make your enemies your (D)footstool.”

The Lord sends forth (E)from Zion
    (F)your mighty scepter.
    (G)Rule in the midst of your enemies!
(H)Your people will (I)offer themselves freely
    on the day of your (J)power,[a]
    in (K)holy garments;[b]
from the womb of the morning,
    the dew of your youth will be yours.[c]
(L)The Lord has (M)sworn
    and will (N)not change his mind,
(O)“You are (P)a priest (Q)forever
    after the order of (R)Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at your (S)right hand;
    he will (T)shatter kings on (U)the day of his wrath.
He will (V)execute judgment among the nations,
    (W)filling them with corpses;
he will (X)shatter chiefs[d]
    over the wide earth.
He will (Y)drink from the brook by the way;
    therefore he will lift up his head.

Great Are the Lord's Works

111 [e] (Z)Praise the Lord!
I (AA)will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
    in the company of (AB)the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the (AC)works of the Lord,
    (AD)studied by all who delight in them.
(AE)Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
    and his (AF)righteousness endures forever.
He has (AG)caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
    the Lord is gracious and merciful.
He provides food for those who fear him;
    he (AH)remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people the power of his works,
    in giving them the inheritance of the nations.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
    all his precepts are (AI)trustworthy;
they are (AJ)established forever and ever,
    to be performed with (AK)faithfulness and uprightness.
He sent (AL)redemption to his people;
    he has (AM)commanded his covenant forever.
    (AN)Holy and awesome is his name!
10 (AO)The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
    all those who practice it have (AP)a good understanding.
    His (AQ)praise endures forever!

The Righteous Will Never Be Moved

112 [f] (AR)Praise the Lord!
(AS)Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
    who (AT)greatly delights in his commandments!
His (AU)offspring will be mighty in the land;
    (AV)the generation of the upright will be blessed.
(AW)Wealth and riches are in his house,
    and his (AX)righteousness endures forever.
Light dawns in the darkness (AY)for the upright;
    he is gracious, merciful, and (AZ)righteous.
It is well with the man who (BA)deals generously and lends;
    who conducts his affairs with justice.
For the righteous will (BB)never be moved;
    (BC)he will be remembered forever.
He is not (BD)afraid of bad news;
    his (BE)heart is firm, (BF)trusting in the Lord.
His heart is steady;[g] he will not be afraid,
    until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
He has (BG)distributed freely; he has given to the poor;
    his righteousness endures forever;
    his (BH)horn is exalted in honor.
10 The wicked man sees it and is angry;
    he (BI)gnashes his teeth and (BJ)melts away;
    (BK)the desire of the wicked will perish!
