GOD'S WORD® Translation
1[A psalm by David.] The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit in the highest position in heaven until I make your enemies your footstool."
2The LORD will extend your powerful scepter from Zion. Rule your enemies who surround you.
3Your people will volunteer when you call up your army. Your young people will come to you in holy splendor like dew in the early morning.
4The LORD has taken an oath and will not change his mind: "You are a priest forever, in the way Melchizedek was a priest."
5The Lord is at your right side. He will crush kings on the day of his anger.
6He will pass judgment on the nations and fill them with dead bodies. Throughout the earth he will crush [their] heads.
7He will drink from the brook along the road. He will hold his head high.
