Psalms 110:1-7

Of David. A melody. 110  The utterance of Jehovah to my Lord* is:+ “Sit at my right hand+ Until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.”+   The rod+ of your strength Jehovah will send out of Zion,+ [saying:] “Go subduing in the midst of your enemies.”+   Your people+ will offer themselves willingly*+ on the day of your military force.+ In the splendors of holiness,+ from the womb of the dawn,* You have your company of young men just like dewdrops.*+   Jehovah has sworn+ (and he will feel no regret):+ “You are a priest to time indefinite+ According to the manner of Mel·chiz′e·dek!”+   Jehovah* himself at your right hand+ Will certainly break kings to pieces on the day of his anger.+   He will execute judgment among the nations;+ He will cause a fullness of dead bodies.+ He will certainly break to pieces the head one over a populous land.+   From the torrent valley in the way he will drink.+ That is why he will raise high [his] head.*+
