A Psalm of David.

rSit at my right hand,

suntil I make your enemies your tfootstool.

The Lord sends forth ufrom Zion

vyour mighty scepter.

wRule in the midst of your enemies!

xYour people will yoffer themselves freely

on the day of your zpower,1

in aholy garments;2

from the womb of the morning,

the dew of your youth will be yours.3

bThe Lord has csworn

and will dnot change his mind,

eYou are fa priest gforever

after the order of hMelchizedek.

The Lord is at your iright hand;

he will jshatter kings on kthe day of his wrath.

He will lexecute judgment among the nations,

mfilling them with corpses;

he will nshatter chiefs4

over the wide earth.

He will odrink from the brook by the way;

therefore he will lift up his head.

in the company of rthe upright, in the congregation.

Great are the sworks of the Lord,

uFull of splendor and majesty is his work,

and his vrighteousness endures forever.

He has wcaused his wondrous works to be remembered;

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 ytrustworthy;

they are zestablished forever and ever,

to be performed with afaithfulness and uprightness.

He sent bredemption to his people;

he has ccommanded his covenant forever.

dHoly and awesome is his name!

10  eThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;

all those who practice it have fa good understanding.

His gpraise endures forever!

112  1 hPraise the Lord!

iBlessed is the man who fears the Lord,

who jgreatly delights in his commandments!

His koffspring will be mighty in the land;

lthe generation of the upright will be blessed.

mWealth and riches are in his house,

and his nrighteousness endures forever.

Light dawns in the darkness ofor the upright;

he is gracious, merciful, and prighteous.

It is well with the man who qdeals generously and lends;

who conducts his affairs with justice.

For the righteous will rnever be moved;

she will be remembered forever.

He is not tafraid of bad news;

his uheart is firm, vtrusting in the Lord.

His heart is steady;2 he will not be afraid,

until he looks in triumph on his adversaries.

He has wdistributed freely; he has given to the poor;

his righteousness endures forever;

his xhorn is exalted in honor.

10  The wicked man sees it and is angry;

he ygnashes his teeth and zmelts away;

athe desire of the wicked will perish!

Who Is like the Lord Our God?

113  bPraise the Lord!

cPraise, O dservants of the Lord,

eBlessed be the name of the Lord

from this time forth and forevermore!

fFrom the rising of the sun to its setting,

gthe name of the Lord is hto be praised!

The Lord is ihigh above all nations,

and his jglory above the heavens!

kWho is like the Lord our God,

who is seated on high,

who llooks far down

on the heavens and the earth?

He mraises the poor from the dust

and lifts the needy from the ash heap,

to make them nsit with princes,

with the princes of his people.

He ogives the barren woman a home,

making her the joyous mother of children.

bPraise the Lord!

Tremble at the Presence of the Lord

114  When pIsrael went out from Egypt,

the house of Jacob from qa people of strange language,

Judah became his rsanctuary,

Israel his dominion.

sThe sea looked and fled;

tJordan turned back.

uThe mountains skipped like rams,

the hills like lambs.

What vails you, O sea, that you flee?

O Jordan, that you turn back?

O mountains, that you skip like rams?

O hills, like lambs?

wTremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord,

at the presence of the God of Jacob,

who turns xthe rock into ya pool of water,

zthe flint into a spring of water.
