Psalm of David
1 Jehovah said to my Lord: »Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.«
2 Jehovah will extend your powerful scepter from Zion. He will say: »Rule in the midst of your enemies.«
3 Your people will volunteer in the day of your power. Your young people will come to you in holy splendor like dew from the womb of the dawn in the early morning.
4 Jehovah has taken an oath and will not change his mind: »You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.«
5 Jehovah is at your right hand. He will crush kings in the day of his anger.
6 He will pass judgment on the nations and fill them with dead bodies. Throughout the earth he will execute their rulers.
7 He will drink from the brook along the road. He will hold his head high.
