1 A Psalm of David. The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool."
2 The Lord will send forth the scepter of your virtue from Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies.
3 It is with you from the beginning, in the day of your virtue, in the splendor of the saints. From conception, before the light-bearer, I begot you.
4 The Lord has sworn, and he will not repent: "You are a priest forever, according to the order of Melchizedek."
5 The Lord is at your right hand. He has broken kings in the day of his wrath.
6 He will judge between the nations; he will fill up ruination. He will shatter heads in the land of the many.
7 He will drink from the torrent on the way. Because of this, he will exalt the head.
