Psalms 110

Listen to Psalms 110
1 1The LORD says to my Lord: 2"Sit at my right hand, 3until I make your enemies your 4footstool."
2 The LORD sends forth 5from Zion 6your mighty scepter. 7Rule in the midst of your enemies!
3 8Your people will 9offer themselves freely on the day of your 10power,[a] in 11holy garments;[b] from the womb of the morning, the dew of your youth will be yours.[c]
4 12The LORD has 13sworn and will 14not change his mind, 15"You are 16a priest 17forever after the order of 18Melchizedek."
5 The Lord is at your 19right hand; he will 20shatter kings on 21the day of his wrath.
6 He will 22execute judgment among the nations, 23filling them with corpses; he will 24shatter chiefs[d] over the wide earth.
7 He will 25drink from the brook by the way; therefore he will lift up his head.
