Matthew 22:43-45 The Passion Translation (TPT)

43 Then Jesus said to them, “How is it that David, inspired by the Holy Spirit, could call his son the Lord? For didn’t he say:

44 The Lord Jehovah said to my Lord,
    ‘Sit near me in the place of authority
    until I subdue all your enemies under Your feet’?[a]

45 “So how could David call his own son ‘the Lord Jehovah’?”[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Matthew 22:44 See Ps. 110:1, which is the Old Testament passage of Scripture most often quoted in the New Testament.
  2. Matthew 22:45 As translated from the Aramaic. To those who insisted on only interpreting the Scriptures literally, Jesus was proving there was a deeper spiritual interpretation. To say the Messiah would be the Son of David means that the Anointed One would manifest the qualities and devotion that David walked in. A true “spiritual” son of David.

Matthew 22:43-45 New International Version (NIV)

43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says,

44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord:
    “Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies
    under your feet.”’[a]

45 If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?”
