The Priestly King

A Davidic psalm.

1 The Lord declared to my Lord: "Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool."a
2 The Lord will extend Your mighty scepter from Zion. Ruleb over Your surroundingc enemies.
3 Your people will volunteer on Your day of battle.d In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn, the dew of Your youth belongs to You.e
4 The Lord has sworn an oath and will not take it back: "Forever, You are a priest like Melchizedek."f
5 The Lord is at Your right hand; He will crush kings on the day of His anger.
6 He will judge the nations, heaping up corpses;g He will crush leaders over the entire world.
7 He will drink from the brook by the road; therefore, He will lift up His head.
