‘I saw Adonai always before me,
for He is at my right hand so that I might not be shaken.

    You will fill me with joy in Your presence.’[a]

    “Sit at my right hand,

    for Your feet.”’[d]

36 “Therefore let the whole house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him—this Yeshua whom you had crucified—both Lord and Messiah!”
