Spurgeon's Verse Expositions of the Bible
Psalms 110



Verses 1-7

Psalms 110:1. The LORD said unto my Lord.

Or Jehovah said unto my Adonai.

Psalms 110:1-2. 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.

This is the Messiah, this is Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. Where are his subjects?

Psalms 110:3. 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.

A willing people shall make up the forces of this great King, and upon them the freshness of the morning shall rest.

Psalms 110:4. The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

King and priest. None other of the house of David save our Lord Jesus Christ could claim the union of these two offices. In Christ we have a King and a priest, as also with Melchisedec of old, a great type of Jesus.

Psalms 110:5-7. The Lord at thy right hand, shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.

This conqueror shall be refreshed in his journey; therefore, shall he lift up the head.

This exposition consisted of readings from Psalms 110:1-7; Hebrews 7:1-14.
