Albert Barnes' Notes on the Whole Bible - Psalms 110:7

He shall drink of the brook in the way - The design here seems to be to represent the Messiah as a victorious king and conqueror pursuing his enemies. In the previous verse the psalmist had represented him under the image of one engaged in battle, and slaying his enemies with a great slaughter. He here represents him as pursuing those who should escape from the battle, and as pursuing them without fainting or exhaustion. He is like one who finds abundant springs and streams of water in his... read more

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Psalms 110:7

Psalms 110:7. He shall drink of the brook in the way That is, says Houbigant, the brook Cedron, I suppose; David pointing out the passion of our Lord, by a continuance of the metaphor wherewith he began. Jesus was exalted because of his sufferings; therefore did he lift up his head, Hebrews 12:2. This is the more general interpretation of the verse. It expresses, says Poole, “the humiliation and passion of the Messiah, to prevent a great mistake which might arise in men’s minds concerning... read more

Bridgeway Bible Commentary - Psalms 110:1-7

Psalms 110:0 The ideal priest-kingMelchizedek was priest-king of the Canaanite city-state of Salem, later known as Jerusalem. He was a man so pure and upright that he was called king of peace, king of righteousness and priest of the Most High God (Hebrews 7:1-10). He first appears in the biblical record when he met and blessed Abraham, who was returning after a victory over some raiders. Abraham refused to take any reward from those who benefited from the victory, but instead made offerings to... read more

E.W. Bullinger's Companion Bible Notes - Psalms 110:7

of = from. The verse begins with this word (Hebrew = M = from), and thus corresponds with the "from" of Psalms 110:3 (member M, above). the head = [his] head. read more

Coffman Commentaries on the Bible - Psalms 110:7

"He will drink of the brook in the way:Therefore will he lift up the head."This verse is for the purpose of indicating the humanity of the Messiah. Just as in Isaiah, where Immanuel (The Messiah) is revealed as a member of the Godhead by his name (Immanuel), and then his humanity is stressed by the fact of his eating butter and honey (Isaiah 7:14-15), here we have a glimpse of the same thing. This great Judge of all men and all nations, "in the way," that is, the way of his earthly ministry,... read more

Thomas Coke

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible - Psalms 110:7

Psalms 110:7. He shall drink of the brook in the way— "That is," says Houbigant, "the brook Cedron, I suppose;" David pointing out the passion of our Lord, by a continuance of the metaphor wherewith he began. Jesus was exalted because of his suffering, therefore did he lift up his head. See Hebrews 12:2. This is the more general interpretation of the verse. There are some, however, who give it a different meaning, and suppose that by drinking of the brook in the way, is meant the succour and... read more

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 110:1-7

Psalms 110This is a prophetic messianic royal psalm that describes a descendant of David who would not only be his son but his Lord. [Note: See Chisholm, "A Theology . . .," pp. 271-73, for further discussion of this psalm’s classification in the light of the New Testament’s use of it. See also Waltke, pp. 887-96, for discussion of messianism, and the Messiah and the New Testament.] This descendant would be both a king and a priest. David was a prophet, and in this psalm he revealed new... read more

Thomas Constable

Expository Notes of Dr. Thomas Constable - Psalms 110:5-7

3. The victory of Messiah 110:5-7Messiah’s victory over His enemies will be great. David saw Messiah presently seated at God the Father’s right hand (cf. Hebrews 8:1; Hebrews 10:12). In the future He will wage war (cf. Joel 3:2; Joel 3:11-14; Revelation 16:16; Revelation 19:13-15). Messiah drinking by a brook pictures Him renewing His strength. Yahweh will exalt Messiah because of His victorious conquest. [Note: See Allen, Rediscovering Prophecy, pp. 173-94.] Later revelation helps us... read more

John Dummelow

John Dummelow's Commentary on the Bible - Psalms 110:1-7

A fragment of an ode of victory to a priestking—’Worthy,’ says Luther,’ to be set in a frame of gold and diamonds.’ A truly Messianic Ps., finding its fulfilment in the triumphs of Christ in the world, and quoted Matthew 22:43; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:42; Acts 2:34; Hebrews 1:13; Hebrews 5:6: see Intro.1. Lit. ’Oracle of Jehovah to my lord.’ The Psalmist seems to hear God addressing the king, whom Jehovah invites to a seat at His right hand, the place of honour. Our Lord applies this v. in the... read more
