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

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

3 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.

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

5 The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath.

6 He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.

7 He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

Matthew Henry's Psalms Chapter 110 Bible commentary...

Christ's kingdom.

- Glorious things are here spoken of Christ. Not only he should be superior to all the kings of the earth, but he then existed in glory as the eternal Son of God. Sitting is a resting posture: after services and sufferings, to give law, to give judgment. It is a remaining posture: he sits like a king for ever. All his enemies are now in a chain, but not yet made his footstool. And his kingdom, being set up, shall be kept up in the world, in despite of all the powers of darkness. Christ's people are a willing people. The power of the Spirit, going with the power of the world, to the people of Christs, is effectual to make them willing. They shall attend him in the beautiful attire of holiness; which becomes his house for ever. And he shall have many devoted to him. The dew of our youth, even in the morning of our days, ought to be consecrated to our Lord Jesus. Christ shall not only be a King, but a Priest. He is God's Minister to us, and our Advocate with the Father, and so is the Mediator between God and man. He is a Priest of the order of Melchizedek, which was before that of Aaron, and on many accounts superior to it, and a more lively representation of Christ's priesthood. Christ's sitting at the right hand of God, speaks as much terror to his enemies as happiness to his people. The effect of this victory shall be the utter ruin of his enemies. We have here the Redeemer saving his friends, and comforting them. He shall be humbled; he shall drink of the brook in the way. The wrath of God, running in the curse of the law, may be considered as the brook in the way of his undertaking. Christ drank of the waters of affliction in his way to the throne of glory. But he shall be exalted. What then are we? Has the gospel of Christ been to us the power of God unto salvation? Has his kingdom been set up in our hearts? Are we his willing subjects? Once we knew not our need of his salvation, and we were not willing that he should reign over us. Are we willing to give up every sin, to turn from a wicked, insnaring world, and rely only on his merits and mercy, to have him for our Prophet, Priest, and King? and do we desire to be holy? To those who are thus changed, the Saviour's sacrifice, intercession, and blessing belong.

The work of God will not be a burden but the best work to engage in doing. Holiness will be easily practiced in this corrupt world and the work of righteousness shall be peace and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever Isaiah 32 17 . Our God is Able.

Samson Kamoru's Psalms Chapter 110 comment on 2/22/2014, 1:53am...

The LORD said to my Lord sit at my right hand until First is that this verse indeed shows the level of relationship David had with the Lord A deed rooted relationship to have been granted access to such significant and end time related revelation of Christ Jesus Second is that the verse reveals the discussions which took between God and of course his beloved son Christ Jesus on the need for Christ to exercise patience until his enemies are brought to him and are made his footstool which means or suggest that God was assuring his son Christ Jesus that those who are opposed to him and who rejected him in a shortwhile will be brought to divine justice which would of course be at the judgment seat of Christ Jesus His enemies are those who yielded themselves to the will and ways of the devil against the will of the Almighty God as represented in the person of Christ Jesus and his work of salvation on the cross at calvary

This psalm is a great blessing to me. It means that with God on my side all my enemies can submit to me. On the other hand leadership is enjoyable with this knowledge this psalm. Those who work under us can work willingly when we submit ourselves to God.
