Ps 110 : The Davidic king.

A royal oracle proclaimed to the Davidic monarch, perhaps at his coronation. The psalm is frequently used in the New Testament of Jesus’ resurrection (Acts 2.34–35; 1 Cor 15.25; Eph 1.20; Heb 1.13 ).

1–2 :

God promises the Davidic monarch in Jerusalem (Zion) victory over his enemies, prostrate before him (Josh 10.24 ).

3 :

The Heb text is extremely difficult; it may refer to the king's warrior exploits and his “birth” into royal status (Ps 2.7n.).

4 :

The king as priest; David and Solomon frequently served in priestly roles (see 2 Sam 6.13,17; 8.18; 1 Kings 3.4 ). For Melchizedek, see Gen 14.17–24 .

5–6 :

With divine help, the king will destroy rulers of the nations, perhaps rebellious vassals of the Davidic empire (Ps 2.2,10–11 ).

7 :

Refreshment for the king after battle, or a ritual of coronation (1 Kings 1.9,39 ).
