Listen to this chapter in Hebrew:

1  A Psalm of David. Hashem saith unto my lord: ‘Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.’

א  לְדָוִד מִזְמוֹר נְאֻם יְהוָה לַאדֹנִי שֵׁב לִימִינִי עַד אָשִׁית אֹיְבֶיךָ הֲדֹם לְרַגְלֶיךָ.

2  The rod of Thy strength Hashem will send out of Tzion: ‘Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.’

ב  מַטֵּה עֻזְּךָ יִשְׁלַח יְהוָה מִצִּיּוֹן רְדֵה בְּקֶרֶב אֹיְבֶיךָ.

3  Thy people offer themselves willingly in the day of thy warfare; in adornments of holiness, from the womb of the dawn, thine is the dew of thy youth.

ג  עַמְּךָ נְדָבֹת בְּיוֹם חֵילֶךָ בְּהַדְרֵי קֹדֶשׁ מֵרֶחֶם מִשְׁחָר לְךָ טַל יַלְדֻתֶיךָ.

4  Hashem hath sworn, and will not repent: ‘Thou art a Kohen for ever after the manner of Melchizedek.’

nish-BA a-do-NAI v’-LO yi-na-KHAYM a-TAH kho-HAYN l’-o-LAM al div-ra-TEE mal-KEE TZE-dek

ד  נִשְׁבַּע יְהוָה וְלֹא יִנָּחֵם אַתָּה כֹהֵן לְעוֹלָם עַל דִּבְרָתִי מַלְכִּי צֶדֶק.

110:4   Melchizedek

This psalm speaks of the coronation of a king, possibly David. It includes praises and blessings to the king of Israel who rules from Zion, who will judge the nation, lead the army, and follow in the ways of the Lord. God sees the king as a kind of priest, as he serves the people and represents them to God, much like a priest does in the Temple. The first king/priest was not from the family of Abraham, but is praised in the Bible as a great king in Jerusalem who recognizes Abraham’s justice and blesses God in Abraham’s presence. This was Melchizedek, who brought bread and wine to Abraham after his battle against the four kings (Genesis 14:18-20).

5  The Lord at thy right hand doth crush kings in the day of His wrath.

ה  אֲדֹנָי עַל יְמִינְךָ מָחַץ בְּיוֹם אַפּוֹ מְלָכִים.

6  He will judge among the nations; He filleth it with dead bodies, He crusheth the head over a wide land.

ו  יָדִין בַּגּוֹיִם מָלֵא גְוִיּוֹת מָחַץ רֹאשׁ עַל אֶרֶץ רַבָּה.

7  He will drink of the brook in the way; therefore will he lift up the head.

ז  מִנַּחַל בַּדֶּרֶךְ יִשְׁתֶּה עַל כֵּן יָרִים רֹאשׁ.

  • This psalm speaks of the making of a king, the coronation of a king, perhaps even King David himself. We are told that it contains the praises that are made to him as king of Israel. Who will judge all nations from Zion. lead the armies. Follow the ways of The Lord thy God. God sees the King as a kind of Priest. Ahead of his nation. He serves his people and represents them all before the throne of God. As we are told much like the Priest do in the very Temple of God. We are then told that the first king/priest was not from the family of Abraham. I do not understand this. Since in a real thought are not all the Children of Israel descents of Abraham? I am a little bit confused on this? However we are told that the king recognizes recognizes Abraham’s justice and blesses God in Abraham’s presence. This was Melchizedek, This is in the spirit of Melchizedek. Who we knew had brought the bread and wine to Abraham after hiss battle with the four kings.

    One day and we hope soon with the coming of the Messiah, Israel will be once again the center of the world as it was always meant to be. The great and wonderful unifies of the World under the Messiah. The Third and final Temple will be built to welcome Him. Earth will finally be a peace under Messiah's rule. This within our lifetime. Amen. Carl
