King, Priest and Conqueror
1 A psalm of David.
The LORD says to you, my lord:
"Take your throne at my righthand,
while I make your enemies your footstool."
2 The scepter of your sovereign might the LORD will extend from Zion.
The LORD says: "Rule over your enemies!
3 Yours is princely power from the day of your birth.
In holy splendor before the daystar,
like the dew I begot you."
4 The LORD has sworn and will not waver:
"Like Melchizedek you are a priest forever."
5 At your right hand is the Lord,
who crushes kings on the day of wrath,
6 Who, robed in splendor, judges nations,
crushes heads across the wide earth,
7 Who drinks from the brook by the wayside and thus holds high the head.
