English Standard Version
Sit at My Right Hand
A Psalm of David.
2 The Lord sends forth (E)from Zion
(F)your mighty scepter.
(G)Rule in the midst of your enemies!
3 (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]
4 (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.”
5 The Lord is at your (S)right hand;
he will (T)shatter kings on (U)the day of his wrath.
6 He will (V)execute judgment among the nations,
(W)filling them with corpses;
he will (X)shatter chiefs[d]
over the wide earth.
7 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.
2 Great are the (AC)works of the Lord,
(AD)studied by all who delight in them.
3 (AE)Full of splendor and majesty is his work,
and his (AF)righteousness endures forever.
4 He has (AG)caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
the Lord is gracious and merciful.
5 He provides food for those who fear him;
he (AH)remembers his covenant forever.
6 He has shown his people the power of his works,
in giving them the inheritance of the nations.
7 The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are (AI)trustworthy;
8 they are (AJ)established forever and ever,
to be performed with (AK)faithfulness and uprightness.
9 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!
2 His (AU)offspring will be mighty in the land;
(AV)the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 (AW)Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his (AX)righteousness endures forever.
4 Light dawns in the darkness (AY)for the upright;
he is gracious, merciful, and (AZ)righteous.
5 It is well with the man who (BA)deals generously and lends;
who conducts his affairs with justice.
6 For the righteous will (BB)never be moved;
(BC)he will be remembered forever.
7 He is not (BD)afraid of bad news;
his (BE)heart is firm, (BF)trusting in the Lord.
8 His heart is steady;[g] he will not be afraid,
until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.
9 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!
