Psalm 110Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A praise song of David.

110 The Lord said to my lord,[a]
    “Sit at my right side, while I put your enemies under your control.”

The Lord will cause your kingdom to grow, beginning at Zion,
    until you rule the lands of your enemies!
Your people will gladly join you
    when you gather your army together.
You will wear your special clothes
    and meet together early in the morning.
Your young men will be all around you
    like dew on the ground.[b]

The Lord has made a promise with an oath
    and will not change his mind:
“You are a priest forever—
    the kind of priest Melchizedek was.”

My Lord is at your right side.
    He will defeat the other kings when he becomes angry.
He will judge the nations.
    The ground will be covered with dead bodies.
    He will punish the leaders of powerful nations all around the world.

The king will drink from a stream on the way.
    Then he will lift his head and become strong![c]


  1. Psalm 110:1 my lord That is, the king.
  2. Psalm 110:3 The Hebrew text here is hard to understand. Literally, “Your people will be freewill offerings on your day of power. In holy splendor from the womb of dawn your dew of youth will be yours.”
  3. Psalm 110:7 lift his head and become strong Literally, “lift his head.” Here, the poet probably means two things: “he will raise his head after drinking the water,” and “he will become strong or important.”
