The LORD Gives Dominion to the King
1101 The Lord said to my lord, Be seated at my right hand, till I put all those who are against you under your feet. 2 The Lord will send out the rod of your strength from Zion; be king over your haters. 3 Your people give themselves gladly in the day of your power; like the dew of the morning on the holy mountains is the army of your young men. 4 The Lord has made an oath, and will not take it back. You are a priest for ever, after the order of Melchizedek.
5 In the day of his wrath kings will be wounded by the Lord at your right hand. 6 He will be judge among the nations, the valleys will be full of dead bodies; the head over a great country will be wounded by him. 7 He will take of the stream by the way; so his head will be lifted up.
The LORD's Care for His People
1111 Let the Lord be praised. I will give praise to the Lord with all my heart, among the upright, and in the meeting of the people. 2 The works of the Lord are great, searched out by all those who have delight in them. 3 His work is full of honour and glory; and his righteousness is unchanging for ever. 4 Certain for ever is the memory of his wonders: the Lord is full of pity and mercy. 5 He has given food to his worshippers; he will keep his agreement in mind for ever.
6 He has made clear to his people the power of his works, giving them the heritage of the nations. 7 The works of his hands are faith and righteousness; all his laws are unchanging. 8 They are fixed for ever and ever, they are done in faith and righteousness. 9 He has sent salvation to his people; he has given his word for ever: holy is his name and greatly to be feared. 10 The fear of the Lord is the best part of wisdom: all those who keep his laws are wise: his praise is eternal.
The Prosperity of Him Who Fears the LORD
1121 Let the Lord be praised. Happy is the man who gives honour to the Lord, and has great delight in his laws. 2 His seed will be strong on the earth; blessings will be on the generation of the upright. 3 A store of wealth will be in his house, and his righteousness will be for ever. 4 For the upright there is a light shining in the dark; he is full of grace and pity. 5 All is well for the man who is kind and gives freely to others; he will make good his cause when he is judged.
6 He will not ever be moved; the memory of the upright will be living for ever. 7 He will have no fear of evil news; his heart is fixed, for his hope is in the Lord. 8 His heart is resting safely, he will have no fear, till he sees trouble come on his haters. 9 He has given with open hands to the poor; his righteousness is for ever; his horn will be lifted up with honour. 10 The sinner will see it with grief; he will be wasted away with envy; the desire of the evil-doers will come to nothing.
