(A psalm by David.)
The Lord Gives Victory
“Sit at my right side,
until I make your enemies
into a footstool for you.”

2 The Lord will let your power
reach out from Zion,
and you will rule
over your enemies.
3 Your glorious power
will be seen on the day
you begin to rule.
You will wear the sacred robes
and shine like the morning sun
in all of your strength.
4 The Lord has made a promise
that will never be broken:
“You will be a priest forever,
just like Melchizedek.”

5 The Lord is at your right side,
and when he gets angry
he will crush
the other kings.
6 He will judge the nations
and crack their skulls,
leaving piles of dead bodies
all over the earth.
7 He will drink from any stream
that he chooses, while winning
victory after victory.
