You Are a Priest Forever
Of David. A Psalm.
Yahweh says to my Lord:
“Sit at My right hand
Until I put Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet.” 2
Yahweh will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying,
“Have dominion in the midst of Your enemies.” 3
Your people will offer themselves freely in the day of Your power;
In the splendor of holiness, from the womb of the dawn,
The dew of Your youthfulness will be Yours.
Yahweh has sworn and will not change His mind,
“You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.” 5
The Lord is at Your right hand;
He will crush kings in the day of His anger. 6
He will render justice among the nations,
He will fill them with corpses,
He will crush the head that is over the wide earth. 7
He will drink from the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He will lift up His head.
