The Songs of Jesus
He Came to Reign Forever
110 The Lord says to my Lord:
“Sit at My right hand
Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”
2 The Lord will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying,
“Rule in the midst of Your enemies.”
3 Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power;
In holy array, from the womb of the dawn,
Your youth are to You as the dew.
4 The Lord has sworn and will not change His mind,
“You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”
5 The Lord is at Your right hand;
He will shatter kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He will judge among the nations,
He will fill them with corpses,
He will shatter the chief men over a broad country.
7 He will drink from the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He will lift up His head.
Psalm 110 is not only the most quoted psalm in all of the New Testament, but it also contains the most quoted verse in all of the New Testament—Psalm 110:1. In this passage we are going to see three prophetic oracles or statements by God to the Messiah. This psalm provides us with four specific facets of the Messiah whose birth we celebrate on this Christmas Eve: Jesus is our God, Jesus is our King, Jesus is our Priest, and Jesus is our Judge.
