Morning Psalm 99

1   The LORD is king; let the peoples tremble!
He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!
2   The LORD is great in Zion;
he is exalted over all the peoples.
3   Let them praise your great and awesome name.
Holy is he!
4   Mighty King, lover of justice,
you have established equity;
you have executed justice
and righteousness in Jacob.
5   Extol the LORD our God;
worship at his footstool.
Holy is he!

6   Moses and Aaron were among his priests,
Samuel also was among those who called on his name.
They cried to the LORD, and he answered them.
7   He spoke to them in the pillar of cloud;
they kept his decrees,
and the statutes that he gave them.

8   O LORD our God, you answered them;
you were a forgiving God to them,
but an avenger of their wrongdoings.
9   Extol the LORD our God,
and worship at his holy mountain;
for the LORD our God is holy.

EVENING PSALM 110

1   The LORD says to my lord,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies your footstool.”

2   The LORD sends out from Zion
your mighty scepter.
Rule in the midst of your foes.
3   Your people will offer themselves willingly
on the day you lead your forces
on the holy mountains.
From the womb of the morning,
like dew, your youth will come to you.
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 on the day of his wrath.
6   He will execute judgment among the nations,
filling them with corpses;
he will shatter heads
over the wide earth.
7   He will drink from the stream by the path;
therefore he will lift up his head.
