Tree of Life Version
My Lord is a Kohen Forever
1 A psalm of David.
Adonai declares to my Lord:
“Sit at My right hand
until I make your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”[a]
2 Adonai will extend your mighty rod from Zion:
“Rule in the midst of your enemies.”[b]
3 Your people will be a freewill offering in a day of your power.
In holy splendors, from dawn’s womb,
yours is the dew of your youth.
4 Adonai has sworn, and will not His mind:
“You are a Kohen forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”[c]
5 My Lord is at your right hand.
He will shatter kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He will judge among the nations, heaping up corpses.
He will crush heads over the entire land.
7 He will drink from a stream along the way
—so His head will be exalted.
