The Psalms

Psalm 110

The kingdom, 1-3; the priesthood, 4; the conquest, 5, 6; and the passion of Christ, 7.

1 [A Psalm of David.] The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool."

2 The LORD will send the rod of your strength out of Zion. Rule in the midst of your enemies.

3 Your people shall be willing in the day of your power, in the beauties of holiness. From the womb of the morning, you have the dew of your youth.

4 The LORD has sworn and will not repent, "You are a priest forever after the order of Melchisedek."

5 The Lord at your right hand will strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

6 He will judge among the heathen. He will fill the places with the dead bodies. He will wound the heads over many countries.

7 He will drink of the brook in the way. Therefore, he will lift up the head.
