Book V
Jehovah Gives Dominion to the King
A Psalm of David.
[1]  JEHOVAH saith unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand,
Until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
[2]  Jehovah will send 1 forth the rod 2 of thy strength out of Zion:
Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.
[3]  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.
[4]  Jehovah hath sworn, and will not repent:
Thou art a priest for ever
After the order 7 of Melchizedek.
[5]  The Lord at thy right hand
Will 8 strike through kings in the day of his wrath.
[6]  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.
[7]  He will drink of the brook in the way:
Therefore will he lift up the head.
