A psalm by David.
1 The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit in the highest position in heaven
until I make your enemies your footstool.”
2 The Lord will extend your powerful scepter from Zion.
Rule your enemies who surround you.
3 Your people will volunteer when you call up your army.
Your young people will come to you in holy splendor
like dew in the early morning.#Or “You have the dew of your youth.”
4 The Lord has taken an oath and will not change his mind:
“You are a priest forever, in the way Melchizedek was a priest.”
5 The Lord is at your right side.
He will crush kings on the day of his anger.
6 He will pass judgment on the nations
and fill them with dead bodies.
Throughout the earth he will crush ⌊their⌋ heads.
7 He will drink from the brook along the road.
He will hold his head high.
