See series: Through My Bible

Psalm 110

The Lord’s Decree to My Lord

By David. A psalm.

The First Decree of the Lord

The decree of the Lord to my lord: [1]
“Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies
    a footstool under your feet.”

Description of King Messiah’s Rule

The Lord will stretch out your strong scepter from Zion.
Rule in the midst of your enemies.
Your people will be willing on the day of your power.
In majesty of holiness, from the womb of the dawn,
    the dew of your youth will be yours. [2]

The Second Decree of the Lord

The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind:
“You are a priest forever, in the manner of Melchizedek.”

Description of King Messiah’s Rule

The Lord is at your right hand.
He will crush kings on the day of his wrath.
He will judge the nations.
He will fill valleys with corpses. [3]
He will crush heads over the wide world. [4]
He will drink from a stream beside the way;
therefore, he will lift up his head.


  1. Psalm 110:1 The second lord in verse 1 is not one of the divine names that are usually rendered Lord or Lord. It is the common noun for lord. It does refer to Christ but as a description, not a title.
  2. Psalm 110:3 Verse 3 is cryptic. The translation is quite literal.
  3. Psalm 110:6 The translation combines the Hebrew and Greek variants.
  4. Psalm 110:6 Or crush the head of the wide world
