Priest Forever

Psalm 110

    Yahweh says to my lord:
“Sit at my right hand,
until I make your enemies your footstool.”

    Yahweh sends forth from Zion
your mighty scepter.
Rule in the midst of your enemies!
    Your people will offer themselves freely
on the day of your power,
in holy garments;
from the womb of the morning,
the dew of your youth will be yours.
    Yahweh has sworn
and will not change his mind,
“You are a priest forever
after the order of Melchizedek.”

    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
over the wide earth.
    He will drink from the brook by the way;
therefore he will lift up his head.
