Psalms 110
The Priestly King
A Davidic psalm.
1This is the declaration of the Lord
to my Lord:
“Sit at My right hand
until I make Your enemies Your footstool.” # Mt 22:44; Mk 12:36; Lk 20:42-43; Ac 2:34-35; 1Co 15:25; Heb 1:13
2The Lord will extend Your mighty scepter from Zion.
Rule # One Hb ms, LXX, Tg read You will rule over Your surrounding # Lit Rule in the midst of Your enemies. # Ps 45:6; Ezk 19:14
3Your people will volunteer
on Your day of battle. # Lit power # Jdg 5:2
In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn,
the dew of Your youth belongs to You. # Hb obscure # 1Ch 16:29; Ps 96:9

“Forever, You are a priest
like Melchizedek.” # Gn 14:18; Heb 5:6,10; 7:17,21
5The Lord is at Your right hand;
He will crush kings on the day of His anger. # Ps 16:8; 68:14

He will crush leaders over the entire world. # Ps 68:21

therefore, He will lift up His head. # Ps 27:6
