A psalm of David.
110:1 Here is the Lord’s proclamation2 to my lord:3
“Sit down at my right hand4 until I make your enemies your footstool!”5
110:2 The Lord6 extends7 your dominion8 from Zion.
Rule in the midst of your enemies!
110:3 Your people willingly follow you9 when you go into battle.10
On the holy hills11 at sunrise12 the dew of your youth13 belongs to you.14
110:4 The Lord makes this promise on oath15 and will not revoke it:16
“You are an eternal priest17 after the pattern of18 Melchizedek.”19
110:5 O sovereign Lord,20 at your right hand
he strikes down21 kings in the day he unleashes his anger.22
110:6 He executes judgment23 against24 the nations;
he fills the valleys with corpses;25
he shatters their heads over the vast battlefield.26
110:7 From the stream along the road he drinks;
then he lifts up his head.27
