1 The Lord said to my lord, 1 "Sit here at my right side until I put your enemies under your feet."
2 From Zion the Lord will extend your royal power. "Rule over your enemies," he says.
3 On the day you fight your enemies, your people will volunteer. Like the dew of early morning your young men will come to you on the sacred hills.
4 The Lord made a solemn promise and will not take it back: 2 "You will be a priest forever in the priestly order of Melchizedek."
5 The Lord is at your right side; when he becomes angry, he will defeat kings.
6 He will pass judgment on the nations and fill the battlefield with corpses; he will defeat kings all over the earth.
7 The king will drink from the stream by the road, and strengthened, he will stand victorious.
