Psalm 110 English Standard Version

The LORD Gives Dominion to the King

110 1  The Lord says to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool." 2  The Lord sends forth from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your enemies! 3  Your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power,[1] in holy garments;[2] from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.[3] 4  The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, "You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek."

5  The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. 6  He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs[4] over the wide earth. 7  He will drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head.
