Amplified Bible

Psalm 110

The Lord Gives Dominion to the King.

A Psalm of David.

1The 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.

诗篇 110

上帝和祂拣选的王

大卫的诗歌。

1耶和华对我主说:
“你坐在我的右边,
等我使你的仇敌成为你的脚凳。”
耶和华必从锡安扩展你的王权,
你必统管你的仇敌。
你跟仇敌作战的时候,
你的百姓必甘心跟从,
他们衣着圣洁,
如清晨的甘露。
耶和华起了誓,永不反悔,
祂说:“你照麦基洗德的模式永远做祭司。”
主在你身旁保护你,
祂发怒的时候,必毁灭列王。
祂要审判列国,
使列国尸横遍野。
祂要毁灭世上的首领。
祂要喝路旁的溪水,
祂必精神抖擞。
