|Jehovah Gives Dominion to the King|
|A Psalm of David.|
| ||JEHOVAH saith unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand,|
Until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
| ||Jehovah will send 1 forth the rod 2 of thy strength out of Zion:|
Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
| ||Thy people offer 3 themselves willingly|
In the day of thy power, 4 in 5 holy array:
Out of the womb of the morning
Thou 6 hast the dew of thy youth.
| ||Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent:|
Thou art a priest for ever
After the order 7 of Melchizedek.
| ||The Lord at thy right hand|
Will 8 strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
| ||He will judge among the nations,|
He 9 will 10 fill the places with dead bodies;
He will 11 strike through the head in 12 many countries.
| ||He will drink of the brook in the way:|
Therefore will he lift up the head.
