Psalm 110

Of David. A psalm.

1 What the LORD says to my master: "Sit right beside me until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet!"
2 May the LORD make your mighty scepter reach far from Zion! Rule over your enemies!
3 Your people stand ready on your day of battle. "In holy grandeur, from the dawn's womb, fight! Your youthful strength is like the dew itself."
4 The LORD has sworn a solemn pledge and won't change his mind: "You are a priest forever in line with Melchizedek."
5 My master, by your strong hand, God has crushed kings on his day of wrath.
6 God brings the nations to justice, piling the dead bodies, crushing heads throughout the earth.
7 God drinks from a stream along the way, then holds his head up high.
