Of David. A psalm.1 The Lord says to my lord: ▼
▼ Or Lord
‘Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.’
2 The Lord will extend your mighty sceptre from Zion, saying,
‘Rule in the midst of your enemies!’
3 Your troops will be willing
on your day of battle.
Arrayed in holy splendour,
your young men will come to you
like dew from the morning’s womb. ▼
▼ The meaning of the Hebrew for this sentence is uncertain.
4 The Lord has sworn
and will not change his mind:
‘You are a priest for ever,
in the order of Melchizedek.’
5 The Lord is at your right hand ▼
▼ Or My lord is at your right hand, Lord;
he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
6 He will judge nations, heaping up the dead
and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.
7 He will drink from a brook along the way; ▼
▼ The meaning of the Hebrew for this clause is uncertain.
and so he will lift his head high.
