The LORD Gives Dominion to the King
110 1 Jehovah said unto my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet. 2 Jehovah shall send the sceptre of thy might out of Zion: rule in the midst of thine enemies. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in holy splendour: from the womb of the morning [shall come] to thee the dew of thy youth. 4 Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art priest for ever after the order of Melchisedek.
5 The Lord at thy right hand will smite through kings in the day of his anger. 6 He shall judge among the nations; he shall fill [all places] with dead bodies; he shall smite through the head over a great country. 7 He shall drink of the brook in the way; therefore shall he lift up the head.
The LORD's Care for His People
111 1 Hallelujah! I will celebrate Jehovah with [my] whole heart, in the council of the upright, and in the assembly. 2 Great are the works of Jehovah; sought out of all that delight in them. 3 His work is majesty and splendour, and his righteousness abideth for ever. 4 He hath made his wonders to be remembered: Jehovah is gracious and merciful. 5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him; he is ever mindful of his covenant.
6 He hath shewn his people the power of his works, to give them the heritage of the nations. 7 The works of his hands are truth and judgment; all his precepts are faithful: 8 Maintained for ever and ever, done in truth and uprightness. 9 He sent deliverance unto his people; he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and terrible is his name. 10 The fear of Jehovah is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all they that do [his precepts]: his praise abideth for ever.
The Prosperity of Him Who Fears the LORD
112 1 Hallelujah! Blessed is the man that feareth Jehovah, that delighteth greatly in his commandments. 2 His seed shall be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright shall be blessed. 3 Wealth and riches [shall be] in his house; and his righteousness abideth for ever. 4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness; he is gracious, and merciful, and righteous. 5 It is well with the man that is gracious and lendeth; he will sustain his cause in judgment.
6 For he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance. 7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is fixed confiding in Jehovah; 8 His heart is maintained, he is not afraid, until he see [his desire] upon his oppressors. 9 He scattereth abroad, he giveth to the needy; his righteousness abideth for ever: his horn shall be exalted with honour. 10 The wicked [man] shall see [it] and be vexed; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.
Judgment of Immorality
5 1 It is universally reported [that there is] fornication among you, and such fornication as [is] not even among the nations, so that one should have his father's wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and ye have not rather mourned, in order that he that has done this deed might be taken away out of the midst of you. 3 For I, [as] absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged as present, 4 [to deliver,] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (ye and my spirit being gathered together, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ), him that has so wrought this: 5 to deliver him, [I say,] [being] such, to Satan for destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 6 Your boasting [is] not good. Do ye not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
7 Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, according as ye are unleavened. For also our passover, Christ, has been sacrificed; 8 so that let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of malice and wickedness, but with unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.
9 I have written to you in the epistle not to mix with fornicators; 10 not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the avaricious and rapacious, or idolaters, since [then] ye should go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you, if any one called brother be fornicator, or avaricious, or idolater, or abusive, or a drunkard, or rapacious, not to mix with [him]; with such a one not even to eat. 12 For what have I [to do] with judging those outside also? ye, do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But those without God judges. Remove the wicked person from amongst yourselves.
