Psalm 110

1    The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at my right hand,  

until I make your enemies your footstool.’

2    May the Lord stretch forth the sceptre of your power;  

rule from Zion in the midst of your enemies.

3    ‘Noble are you on this day of your birth;  

on the holy mountain, from the womb of the dawn

    the dew of your new birth is upon you.’

4    The Lord has sworn and will not retract:  

‘You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.’

5    The king at your right hand, O Lord,  

shall smite down kings in the day of his wrath.

6    In all his majesty, he shall judge among the nations,  

smiting heads over all the wide earth.

7    He shall drink from the brook beside the way;  

therefore shall he lift high his head.
