A Psalm of Asaph. God has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods he holds judgment:
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;
Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one, in your splendor and majesty!
Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord, mighty in battle!
I have set the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Salvation belongs to the Lord; your blessing be on your people! Selah

And whoever will not listen to my words that he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him.
“The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen—
For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
