Psalms 110

Psalm 1101

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
