A. The LORD said unto my Lord,
Sit thou at my right hand,
until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
2 The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
B. 3 Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power,
in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning:
thou hast the dew of thy youth.
A’. 4 The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent,
Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.
B’. 5 The Lord at thy right hand
a. shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
b. 6 He shall judge among the heathen,
b’. he shall fill the places with the dead bodies;
a’. he shall wound the heads over many countries.
7 He shall drink of the brook in the way:
therefore shall he lift up the head.
