The Lord and His Chosen King
1 The Lord said to my lord,
“Sit here at my right side
until I put your enemies under your feet.”
2From Zion the Lord will extend your royal power.
“Rule over your enemies,” he says.
3On the day you fight your enemies,
your people will volunteer.
Like the dew of early morning
your young men will come to you on the sacred hills.
4 The Lord made a solemn promise and will not take it back:
“You will be a priest forever
in the priestly order of Melchizedek.”
5The Lord is at your right side;
when he becomes angry, he will defeat kings.
6He will pass judgment on the nations
and fill the battlefield with corpses;
he will defeat kings all over the earth.
7The king will drink from the stream by the road,
and strengthened, he will stand victorious.
