1 The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit in the place of honor at My right hand until I humble Your enemies, making them a footstool under Your feet."
2 The LORD will extend Your powerful kingdom from Jerusalem; You will rule over Your enemies.
3 When You go to war, Your people will serve You willingly. You are arrayed in holy garments, and Your strength will be renewed each day like the morning dew.
4 The LORD has taken an oath and will not break His vow: "You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek."
5 The Lord stands at Your right hand to protect You. He will strike down many kings when His anger erupts.
6 He will punish the nations and fill their lands with corpses; He will shatter heads over the whole earth.
7 But He Himself will be refreshed from brooks along the way. He will be victorious
You are a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek.
It's great when we get to see the psalms explained in the New Testament. Jesus Himself explains in Matthew 22:44 that when David speaks of Him in verse 1, he refers to Him as Lord, showing clearly that Jesus is not only a descendant of David but the Son of God!
Hebrews 6:6-10 also explains how Jesus is our forever High Priest as mentioned in verse 4 of this Psalm.

Jesus, "Who are you?" is the most important question I can ever ask or answer. Thank you that you are fully God and fully man. Help me to tell others about You!
