Psalm 110 New King James Version (NKJV)

Announcement of the Messiah’s Reign

A Psalm of David.

110 The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion.
Rule in the midst of Your enemies!

Your people shall be volunteers
In the day of Your power;
In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning,
You have the dew of Your youth.
The Lord has sworn
And will not relent,
“You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at Your right hand;
He shall [a]execute kings in the day of His wrath.
He shall judge among the nations,
He shall fill the places with dead bodies,
He shall [b]execute the heads of many countries.
He shall drink of the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He shall lift up the head.

Psalm 110 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The Lord Gives Dominion to the King.

A Psalm of David.

110 The Lord (Father) says to my Lord (the Messiah, His Son),
“Sit at My right hand
Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet [subjugating them into complete submission].”

The Lord will send the scepter of Your strength from Zion, saying,
“Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”

Your people will offer themselves willingly [to participate in Your battle] in the day of Your power;
In the splendor of holiness, from the womb of the dawn,
Your young men are to You as the dew.


The Lord has sworn [an oath] and will not change His mind:
[a]You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”

The Lord is at Your right hand,
He [b]will crush kings in the day of His wrath.

He will execute judgment [in overwhelming punishment] among the nations;
He will fill them with corpses,
He will crush the chief men over a broad country.

He will drink from the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He will lift up His head [triumphantly].

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 110:4 In rabbinic legend, Shem (the son of Noah) was Melchizedek, and God had planned to make him the first high priest. But when he blessed Abraham without first blessing God (Gen 14:18f), God gave the priesthood to Abraham instead.
  2. Psalm 110:5 Lit has smashed, probably a prophetic construction, and so in v 6.
