Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Psalms 110:1


110:1 The Lord - God the father. Said - Decreed it from eternity, and in due time published this decree, and actually executed it; which he did when he raised up Christ from the dead, and brought him into his heavenly mansion. Unto - Unto his son the Messiah, whom David designedly calls his Lord, to admonish the whole church, that although he was his son according to his human nature, yet he had an higher nature, and was also his Lord, as being God blessed for ever, and consequently Lord of all things. The Hebrew word Adon is one of God's titles, signifying his power and authority over all things, and therefore is most fitly given to the Messiah, to whom God hath delegated all his power #Matt 28:18|. Sit - Now take thy rest and the possession of that sovereign kingdom and glory, which by right belongeth to thee; do thou rule with me with equal power and majesty, as thou art God; and with an authority and honour far above all creatures, as thou art man. Make - By my almighty power communicated to thee as God by eternal generation, and vouchsafed to thee as mediator. Enemies - All ungodly men, sin and death, and the devil. Footstool - Thy slaves and vassals.


Discussion for Psalms 110

    Enemies that are against Christ and Christians are both physical and spiritual. Christian can have a continuous victory like David if we sit close enough to Our savior Jesus and eventually rest on every side like David had later in his life.
  • I take it that since Christ is the king of the universe, he will assassinate those who refuse to submit to His rule. After all he has the power to kill and also to raise back to life at the general resurrection.
  • Mary Ellen
    the more I READ GODS WORD THE MORE HIS GLORY, POWER AND SPLENDOR IS. GOD IS OUR EVER LASTING PRIEST, FATHER, SAVIOUR, LORD, KING, COMFORTER, ENCOURAGER, GOD IS EVERYTHING BREAD WHEN WE ARE HUNGRY AND WATER WHEN WE ARE THIRSTY. AND LET EVERYONE SAY AMEN , AND AMEN.
  • Oyejide Samuel for verse 3
    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.
