Psalm 110:1-7 New International Version

The LORD Gives Dominion to the King

110 1  The Lord says to my lord:[1]"Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." 2  The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying, "Rule in the midst of your enemies!" 3  Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning's womb.[2] 4  The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: "You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek."

5  The Lord is at your right hand[3] ; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath. 6  He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth. 7  He will drink from a brook along the way,[4]and so he will lift his head high.
