Psalm 110–111

Psalm 110

Of David. A psalm.

The Lord saysc to my lord:a

“Sit at my right handd

until I make your enemies

a footstool for your feet.”e

The Lord will extend your mighty scepterf from Zion,g saying,

“Ruleh in the midst of your enemies!”

Your troops will be willing

on your day of battle.

Arrayed in holy splendor,i

your young men will come to you

like dew from the morning’s womb.b j

The Lord has sworn

and will not change his mind:k

“You are a priest forever,l

in the order of Melchizedek.m

The Lord is at your right handc;n

he will crush kingso on the day of his wrath.p

He will judge the nations,q heaping up the deadr

and crushing the rulerss of the whole earth.

He will drink from a brook along the way,d

and so he will lift his head high.t

Psalm 111a
