PSALM 110 - Important Confusion 20 Feb 2020
Psalm 110 holds important messages. Nevertheless even Jesus raises in the new testament the question how David can say such things as verse 1.
I assume that most of the psalm applies to Jesus himself. Is it meant that Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father? Then it follows ... till the time ...
Please may some of you explain this psalm to me. And then ... how should I pray it?
1 [Of David. Psalm]
Yahweh declared to my Lord,
'Take your seat at my right hand,
till I have made your enemies your footstool.'
2 Yahweh will stretch out the sceptre of your power;
from Zion you will rule your foes all around you.
3 Royal dignity has been yours from the day of your birth,
sacred honour from the womb, from the dawn of your youth.
4 Yahweh has sworn an oath he will never retract,
you are a priest for ever of the order of Melchizedek.
5 At your right hand, Lord,
he shatters kings when his anger breaks out.
6 He judges nations, heaping up corpses,
he breaks heads over the whole wide world.
7 He drinks from a stream as he goes,
and therefore he holds his head high.
