I'm not sure where you get this from, unless you have been confused by
the New Testament quotations of verse 1 which use the same word KURIOS
for YHWH and ADON. The personal references in the psalm seem clear:
there is one YHWH, also called ADONAY in v.5 in some texts, who is
speaking and promising help to the human "my lord" (ADON) of v.1 who is
referred to as "you" in the rest of the psalm. No sign of a second

It still seems to me that "you" is on the right hand of YHWH in verse 1
yet verse 5 says that ADONAY (YHWH) is the one on the right hand.  Are
you saying that they have changed places from verse 1 to verse 5? Who do
you think "my lord" is in verse 1?
