The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“[[A Psalm of David.]] The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth.

The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.”

– Psalm 110:1- 4 (KJV)

  1. Psalm 110
    The Lord’s Decree to My Lord
    By David. A psalm.

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

    (Description of King Messiah’s Rule)
    2 The Lord will stretch out your strong scepter from Zion.
    Rule in the midst of your enemies.
    3 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.[b]

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

    a. 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.
    b. Psalm 110:3 Verse 3 is cryptic. The translation is quite literal.
    c. Psalm 110:6 The translation combines the Hebrew and Greek variants.
    d. Psalm 110:6 Or crush the head of the wide world
