Psalms 109

Dixit Dominus. Christ’s exaltation and everlasting priesthood.

[1] The Lord said to my Lord: Sit thou at my right hand: Until I make thy enemies thy footstool. [2]The Lord will send forth the sceptre of thy power out of Sion: rule thou in the midst of thy enemies. [3] With thee is the principality in the day of thy strength: in the brightness of the saints: from the womb before the day star I begot thee. [4] The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent: Thou art a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech. [5] The Lord at thy right hand hath broken kings in the day of his wrath.

[6] He shall judge among nations, he shall fill ruins: he shall crush the heads in the land of the many. [7] He shall drink of the torrent in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
