Psalm 110
International Standard Version Par ▾ 

A Davidic psalm

A Priestly Ruler

1A declaration from the LORDa to my Lord:

“Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies your footstool.”

2When the LORD extends your mighty scepter from Zion,

rule in the midst of your enemies.

3Your soldiersb are willing volunteers on your day of battle;

in majestic holiness, from the womb,

from the dawn, the dew of your youth belongs to you.

4The LORD took an oath and will never recant:

“You are a priest forever,

after the manner of Melchizedek.”

5The Lord is at your right hand;

he will utterly destroy kings in the time of his wrath.

6He will execute judgment against the nations,

filling gravesc with corpses.

He will utterly destroy leaders far and wide.

7He will drink from a stream on the way,

then hold his head high.

a 110:1 So MT; LXX reads The LORD said
b 110:3 Lit. people
c 110:6 The Heb. lacks graves
