A Priest Forever

December 4, 2016

Book: Psalms

Psalm 110:

The Lord says to my Lord:

“Sit at my right hand,

until I make your enemies your footstool.”

The Lord sends forth from Zion

your mighty scepter.

Rule in the midst of your enemies!

Your people will offer themselves freely

on the day of your power,1

in holy garments;2

from the womb of the morning,

the dew of your youth will be yours.3

The Lord has sworn

and will not change his mind,

“You are a priest forever

after the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at your right hand;

he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.

He will execute judgment among the nations,

filling them with corpses;

he will shatter chiefs4

over the wide earth.

He will drink from the brook by the way;

therefore he will lift up his head.
