Mark 12:37

12:37 David himself calls him Lord. Jesus argues that, while the Messiah is descended from David, His royal dignity and power far surpass those of David, for David addresses this King as “my Lord” (Ps. 110:1). This king is uniquely associated with the Lord (Ps. 110:2). Such clear and faithful interpretation of Scripture is heard “gladly” (cf. Luke 24:32).
