Psalm 110

A psalm by David.

Yahweh said to my Lord,
    “Sit in the highest position in heaven
        until I make your enemies your footstool.”

Yahweh will extend your powerful scepter from Zion.
    Rule your enemies who surround you.

Your people will volunteer when you call up your army.
    Your young people will come to you in holy splendor
        like dew in the early morning.[a]

Yahweh has taken an oath and will not change his mind:
    “You are a priest forever, in the way Melchizedek was a priest.”

Adonay is at your right side.
    He will crush kings on the day of his anger.
He will pass judgment on the nations
    and fill them with dead bodies.
        Throughout the earth he will crush their heads.
He will drink from the brook along the road.
    He will hold his head high.
