Of David. A Psalm. 1

The LORD says to my lord, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool.”

2

The LORD sends out from Zion your mighty scepter. Rule in the midst of your foes. 3 Your people will offer themselves willingly on the day you lead your forces on the holy mountains. a Gk: Heb their From the womb of the morning, like dew, your youth b Gk: Heb They have risen up and have been put to shame will come to you. 4 The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” c Another reading is in holy splendor

5

The Lord is at your right hand; he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath. 6 He will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter heads over the wide earth. 7 He will drink from the stream by the path; therefore he will lift up his head.
