The LORD Gives Dominion to the King.

A Psalm of David.

1 1The LORD says to my Lord: "2Sit at My right hand Until I make 3Your enemies a footstool * for Your feet."
2 The LORD will stretch forth Your strong 4scepter from Zion, saying, "5Rule in the midst of Your enemies."
3 Your 6people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; 7In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the 8dew.
4 9The LORD has sworn and will 10not change His mind, "You are a 11priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek."
5 The Lord is 12at Your right hand; He will 13shatter kings in the 14day of His wrath.
6 He will 15judge among the nations, He will fill them with 16corpses, He will 17shatter the chief men over a broad country.
7 He will 18drink from the brook by the wayside; Therefore * He will 19lift up His head.
