110 ·The Lord said [L Utterance/Oracle of the Lord] to my Lord, “Sit at my right ·side [L hand] until I put your enemies under your ·control [L feet; Matt. 22:44; 26:64; Mark 12:36; 16:19; Luke 20:42–44; 22:59; Acts 2:34–35; Rom. 8:34; 1 Cor. 15:25; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3, 13; 8:1; 10:12–13; 12:2].” 2 The Lord will ·enlarge [L send] ·your kingdom [L the scepter of your strength; C symbol of royal power] beyond ·Jerusalem [L Zion; C location of the Temple], and ·you will rule over [L give you dominion in the midst of] your enemies. 3 Your people will ·join [freely offer themselves to] you on ·your day of battle [L the day of your power/army]. You have been dressed in ·holiness [splendor of holiness] from ·birth [L the womb of dawn]; you have the ·freshness of a child [L dew of your youth].
4 The Lord has made a promise and will not ·change his mind [waver]. He said, “You are a priest forever, a priest like Melchizedek [C in reference to an ancient priest-king in Jerusalem; ultimately fulfilled in Christ; Gen. 14:18; Heb. 5:6; 7:17, 21].”
5 The Lord is ·beside you to help you [L by your right hand]. ·When he becomes angry [L In the day of his anger], he will ·crush [shatter] kings. 6 He will judge those nations, filling them with ·dead bodies [corpses]; he will ·defeat rulers [L crush/shatter heads] ·all over the [L throughout the wide] world. 7 ·The king [or The Lord; L He] will drink from the brook on the way. Then he will ·be strengthened [L lift up his head].
