Psalm 110

Assurance of Victory for God’s Priest-King

Of David. A Psalm.

The Lord says to my lord,
    “Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies your footstool.”(A)

The Lord sends out from Zion
    your mighty scepter.
    Rule in the midst of your foes.(B)
Your people will offer themselves willingly
    on the day you lead your forces
    on the holy mountains.[a]
From the womb of the morning,
    like dew, your youth[b] will come to you.(C)
The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind,
    “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”[c](D)

The Lord is at your right hand;
    he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.(E)
He will execute judgment among the nations,
    filling them with corpses;
he will shatter heads
    over the wide earth.(F)
He will drink from the stream by the path;
    therefore he will lift up his head.(G)
