Psalms 110:1-7

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • A king and priest like Melchizedek

    • ‘Rule in the midst of your enemies’ (2)

    • Willing young ones like dewdrops (3)

Of David. A melody. 110  Jehovah declared to my Lord: “Sit at my right hand+ Until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.”+   Jehovah will extend the scepter of your power 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 splendid holiness, from the womb of the dawn, You have your company of young men just like dewdrops.   Jehovah has sworn an oath, and he will not change his mind:* “You are a priest forever+ In the manner of Mel·chizʹe·dek!”+   Jehovah will be at your right hand;+ He will crush kings on the day of his anger.+   He will execute judgment against* the nations;+ He will fill the land with dead bodies.+ He will crush the leader* of a vast land.*   He* will drink from the stream along the road. Therefore, he will hold his head high.
