King James Version

Psalm 110

1The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

The Lord shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Psalm 110

Psalm 110

A psalm of David.

The Lord says to my lord,
    “Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies
    under your control.”

The Lord will make your royal authority spread out from Zion to other lands.
    He says, “Rule over your enemies who are all around you.”
Your troops will be willing to fight for you
    on the day of battle.
Your young men will be wrapped in holy majesty.
    They will come to you like the fresh dew that falls early in the morning.

The Lord has made a promise.
    He will not change his mind.
He has said, “You are a priest forever,
    just like Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at your right hand.
    He will crush kings on the day when he is angry.
He will judge the nations. He will pile up dead bodies on the field of battle.
    He will crush the rulers of the whole earth.
He will drink from a brook along the way and receive new strength.
    And so he will win the battle.
