The Lord Gives Dominion to the King.
1The Lord (Father) says to my Lord (the Messiah, His Son),
“Sit at My right hand
Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet [subjugating them into complete submission].”
2The Lord will send the scepter of Your strength from Zion, saying,
“Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”
3Your people will offer themselves willingly [to participate in Your battle] in the day of Your power;
In the splendor of holiness, from the womb of the dawn,
Your young men are to You as the dew.
4The Lord has sworn [an oath] and will not change His mind:
“You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”
5The Lord is at Your right hand,
He will crush kings in the day of His wrath.
6He will execute judgment [in overwhelming punishment] among the nations;
He will fill them with corpses,
He will crush the chief men over a broad country.
7He will drink from the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He will lift up His head [triumphantly].
