Psalms 110-114 - The LORD Gives Dominion to the King; The LORD Praised for His Goodness

Psalm 110

The LORD Gives Dominion to the King.

A Psalm of David.

1 The LORD says to my Lord:

"Sit at My right hand

Until I make Your enemies

a footstool for Your feet."

2 The LORD will stretch forth Your strong

scepter from Zion, saying,

"Rule in the midst of Your enemies."

3 Your people will volunteer freely

in the day of Your power;

In holy array, from the womb of the dawn,

Your youth are to You as the dew.

4 The LORD has sworn and will not

change His mind,

"You are a priest forever

According to the order of Melchizedek."

5 The Lord is at Your right hand;

He will shatter kings in the day of His wrath.

6 He will judge among the nations,

He will fill them with corpses,

He will shatter the chief men over

a broad country.

7 He will drink from the brook by the wayside;

Therefore He will lift up His head.

Psalm 111

The LORD Praised for His Goodness.

1 Praise the LORD!

I will give thanks to the LORD

with all my heart,

In the company of the upright and

in the assembly.

2 Great are the works of the LORD;

They are studied by all who delight in them.

3 Splendid and majestic is His work,

And His righteousness endures forever.

4 He has made His wonders to be


The LORD is gracious and compassionate.

5 He has given food to those who fear Him;

He will remember His covenant forever.

6 He has made known to His people

the power of His works,

In giving them the heritage of the nations.

7 The works of His hands are truth and justice;

All His precepts are sure.

8 They are upheld forever and ever;

They are performed in truth and uprightness.

9 He has sent redemption to His people;

He has ordained His covenant forever;

Holy and awesome is His name.

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning

of wisdom;

A good understanding have all those who do

His commandments;

His praise endures forever.

Psalm 112

Prosperity of the One Who Fears the LORD.

1 Praise the LORD!

How blessed is the man who fears the LORD,

Who greatly delights in His commandments.

2 His descendants will be mighty on earth;

The generation of the upright will be blessed.

3 Wealth and riches are in his house,

And his righteousness endures forever.

4 Light arises in the darkness for the upright;

He is gracious and compassionate

and righteous.

5 It is well with the man who is gracious

and lends;

He will maintain his cause in judgment.

6 For he will never be shaken;

The righteous will be remembered forever.

7 He will not fear evil tidings;

His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.

8 His heart is upheld, he will not fear,

Until he looks with satisfaction

on his adversaries.

9 He has given freely to the poor,

His righteousness endures forever;

His horn will be exalted in honor.

10 The wicked will see it and be vexed,

He will gnash his teeth and melt away;

The desire of the wicked will perish.

Psalm 113

The LORD Exalts the Humble.

1 Praise the LORD!

Praise, O servants of the LORD,

Praise the name of the LORD.

2 Blessed be the name of the LORD

From this time forth and forever.

3 From the rising of the sun to its setting

The name of the LORD is to be praised.

4 The LORD is high above all nations;

His glory is above the heavens.

5 Who is like the LORD our God,

Who is enthroned on high,

6 Who humbles Himself to behold

The things that are in heaven

and in the earth?

7 He raises the poor from the dust

And lifts the needy from the ash heap,

8 To make them sit with princes,

With the princes of His people.

9 He makes the barren woman abide

in the house

As a joyful mother of children.

Praise the LORD!

Psalm 114

God's Deliverance of Israel from Egypt.

1 When Israel went forth from Egypt,

The house of Jacob from a people

of strange language,

2 Judah became His sanctuary,

Israel, His dominion.

3 The sea looked and fled;

The Jordan turned back.

4 The mountains skipped like rams,

The hills, like lambs.

5 What ails you, O sea, that you flee?

O Jordan, that you turn back?

6 O mountains, that you skip like rams?

O hills, like lambs?

7 Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,

Before the God of Jacob,

8 Who turned the rock into a pool of water,

The flint into a fountain of water.
