Psalm 110

Sit at My Right Hand

A Psalm of David.

1The Lord says to my Lord:

“Sit at my right hand,

until I make your enemies your footstool.”

2The Lord sends forth from Zion

your mighty scepter.

Rule in the midst of your enemies!

3Your people will offer themselves freely

on the day of your power,1

in holy garments;2

from the womb of the morning,

the dew of your youth will be yours.3

4The Lord has sworn

and will not change his mind,

“You are a priest forever

after the order of Melchizedek.”

5The Lord is at your right hand;

he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.

6He will execute judgment among the nations,

filling them with corpses;

he will shatter chiefs4

over the wide earth.

7He will drink from the brook by the way;

therefore he will lift up his head.
