Psalm 110 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Psalm 110

The Priestly King

A psalm of David.

This is the declaration of the Lord
to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies your footstool.”
The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion.
Rule[a] over your surrounding[b] enemies.
Your people will volunteer
on your day of battle.[c]
In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn,
the dew of your youth belongs to you.[d]
The Lord has sworn an oath and will not take it back:
“You are a priest forever
according to the pattern of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at your right hand;
he will crush kings on the day of his anger.
He will judge the nations, heaping up corpses;
he will crush leaders over the entire world.
He will drink from the brook by the road;
therefore, he will lift up his head.

Psalm 110 New Living Translation (NLT)

Psalm 110

A psalm of David.

The Lord said to my Lord,[a]
    “Sit in the place of honor at my right hand
until I humble your enemies,
    making them a footstool under your feet.”

The Lord will extend your powerful kingdom from Jerusalem[b];
    you will rule over your enemies.
When you go to war,
    your people will serve you willingly.
You are arrayed in holy garments,
    and your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew.

The Lord has taken an oath and will not break his vow:
    “You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord stands at your right hand to protect you.
    He will strike down many kings when his anger erupts.
He will punish the nations
    and fill their lands with corpses;
    he will shatter heads over the whole earth.
But he himself will be refreshed from brooks along the way.
    He will be victorious.
