110 1 David prophesieth of the power and everlasting kingdom given to Christ,  4 and of his Priesthood, which should put an end to the Priesthood of Levi.

A Psalm of David.

The [a]Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

The Lord shall send the rod of thy power out of [b]Zion: be thou ruler in the midst of thine enemies.

Thy people shall come willingly at the time of assembling [c]thine army in holy beauty: the youth of thy womb shall be as the morning dew.

The Lord sware, and will not repent, Thou art a Priest forever, after the order of [d]Melchizedek.

The Lord that is at thy right hand, shall wound kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall be judge among the heathen: he shall fill all with dead bodies, and smite the [e]head over great countries.

He shall [f]drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up his head.
