Psalm 110 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
God Appoints the King both King and Priest
1 A psalm of David.
The Lord says to my lord:
“Sit at my right hand,
while I make your enemies your footstool.”
2 The scepter of your might:
the Lord extends your strong scepter from Zion.
Have dominion over your enemies!
3 Yours is princely power from the day of your birth.
In holy splendor before the daystar,
like dew I begot you.
4 The Lord has sworn and will not waver:
“You are a priest forever in the manner of Melchizedek.”
5 At your right hand is the Lord,
who crushes kings on the day of his wrath,
6 Who judges nations, heaps up corpses,
crushes heads across the wide earth,
7 Who drinks from the brook by the wayside
and thus holds high his head.
