1 The LORD says to my lord: [^1] "Sit at my right hand ¶ until I make your enemies ¶ a footstool for your feet."
2 The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying, ¶ "Rule in the midst of your enemies!"
3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. ¶ Arrayed in holy splendor, ¶ your young men will come to you ¶ like dew from the morning's womb. [^2]
4 The LORD has sworn ¶ and will not change his mind: ¶ "You are a priest forever, ¶ in the order of Melchizedek."
5 The Lord is at your right hand [^3] ; ¶ he will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
6 He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth.
7 He will drink from a brook along the way, [^4] and so he will lift his head high.
