8 But about the Son [the Father says to Him],
“Your throne, [a]O God, is forever and ever,
And the [b]scepter of [absolute] righteousness is the scepter of [c]His kingdom.
“You have loved righteousness [integrity, virtue, uprightness in purpose] and have hated lawlessness [injustice, sin].
Therefore God, Your God, Has anointed You
With the oil of gladness above Your companions.”(A)
