Of David. A Psalm.
The Lord says to my lord, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool.”
2 The Lord sends out from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your foes. 3 Your people will offer themselves willingly on the day you lead your forces on the holy mountains.[a] From the womb of the morning, like dew, your youth[b] will come to you. 4 The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”[c]
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 heads over the wide earth. 7 He will drink from the stream by the path; therefore he will lift up his head.
a. Psalm 110:3 Another reading is in holy splendor
b. Psalm 110:3 Cn: Heb the dew of your youth
c. Psalm 110:4 Or forever, a rightful king by my edict
