Assurance of Victory for God's Priest-King
Of David. A Psalm.
1The Lord says to my lord,
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies your footstool.”
2The Lord sends out from Zion
your mighty scepter.
Rule in the midst of your foes.
3Your people will offer themselves willingly
on the day you lead your forces
on the holy mountains.#110.3 Another reading is in holy splendor
From the womb of the morning,
like dew, your youth#110.3 Cn: Heb the dew of your youth will come to you.
4The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind,
“You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”#110.4 Or forever, a rightful king by my edict
5The Lord is at your right hand;
he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.
6He will execute judgment among the nations,
filling them with corpses;
he will shatter heads
over the wide earth.
7He will drink from the stream by the path;
therefore he will lift up his head.
