Assurance of Victory for God’s Priest-King

A Psalm of David.

The Lord says to my lord:

“Sit at my right hand,

till I make your enemies your footstool.”

The Lord sends forth from Zion

your mighty scepter.

Rule in the midst of your foes!

Your people will offer themselves freely

on the day you lead your host

upon the holy mountains.[a]

From the womb of the morning

like dew your youth[b] will come to you.

The Lord has sworn

and will not change his mind,

“You are a priest for ever

after the order of Melchiz′edek.”

The Lord is at your right hand;

he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.

He will execute judgment among the nations,

filling them with corpses;

he will shatter chiefs[c]

over the wide earth.

He will drink from the brook by the way;

therefore he will lift up his head.
