Psalm 110
New American Bible Revised Edition

Psalm 110*

God Appoints the King both King and Priest

1A psalm of David.

The Lord says to my lord:*

“Sit at my right hand,

while I make your enemies your footstool.”*a

2The scepter of your might:

the Lord extends your strong scepter from Zion.

Have dominion over your enemies!

3Yours is princely power from the day of your birth.

In holy splendor before the daystar,

like dew I begot you.b

4The Lord has sworn and will not waver:

“You are a priest forever in the manner of Melchizedek.”*c

5At your right hand is the Lord,

who crushes kings on the day of his wrath,d

6Who judges nations, heaps up corpses,

crushes heads across the wide earth,

7*Who drinks from the brook by the wayside

and thus holds high his head.e
