Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers - Psalms 110:7

(7) Drink . . . lift up.—The victorious leader, “faint yet pursuing” (Judges 8:4), pauses at the stream that crosses his path, and then refreshed, with head once more erect, continues his pursuit of the foe. Such is undoubtedly the meaning of this verse, and we need not suppose a sudden change of subject, as some critics do, as if the picture representing a thirsty warrior were unworthy of Jehovah. Poetry knows nothing of such timidity, and with the grand scene of Isaiah 63:1-6, of the hero... read more

Expositor's Dictionary of Texts - Psalms 110:1-7

Creation's Witness to the Youth of Jesus Psalms 110:3 On the one hand, we have the eternal youth of Christ, and for us who are Christians, Christ is the Creator. On the other hand, we have this great creation, the handiwork of this eternal youth. Let us try and discover the witness of creation to the perpetual youth of Jesus Christ. I. First, then, youth is the season of abounding energy. There is an eager strenuousness in opening life that is tamed or tempered by the advance of years: I look... read more

Expositor's Bible Commentary - Psalms 110:1-7

Psalms 110:1-7Does our Lord’s attribution of this psalm to David foreclose the question of its authorship for those who accept His authority? Many, who fully recognise and reverently bow to that authority, think that it does not, and appeal for support of their view to the unquestionable limitations of His earthly knowledge. It is urged that His object in His argument with the Pharisees, in which this psalm is quoted by Him, {Matthew 22:41-46 and parallels} is not to instruct them on the... read more

Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible - Psalms 110:1-7

Psalms 110:0 The Psalm of the King-Priest 1. His person, exaltation and waiting (Psalms 110:1 ) 2. His manifestation and His glory (Psalms 110:2-4 ) 3. His judgment and His glory (Psalms 110:5-7 ) Seven verses only, but what revelations and depths we find here! The Psalm is frequently quoted in the New Testament. Who is the person of whom the first verse testifies? Here is the critics’ answer. “Is the Psalm Messianic? Looking at it by itself, and without prepossession, one would not say... read more

Geneva Study Bible - Psalms 110:7

110:7 He shall {f} drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.(f) Under this comparison of a captain that is so eager to destroy his enemies that he will not scarce drink by the way, he shows how God will destroy his enemies. read more

James Gray

James Gray's Concise Bible Commentary - Psalms 110:1-7

The first psalm in this lesson is one of the imprecatory or cursing psalms, in the interpretation of which we should keep in mind the principles already stated: (1) that the writer speaks as a prophet; (2) that the enemies are not merely personal to him but enemies of God; (3) that they are not individuals so much as nations; and (4) that they are considered at a time when the incorrigible condition has been reached, and they have become permanently fixed in opposition to the Most High. The... read more

Robert Hawker

Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary - Psalms 110:7

I do not presume to decide the point, but I am very much inclined to think that Christ's drinking of the brook, was meant in allusion to the sufferings of Jesus. The brook Cedron, over which he passed in his way to the garden, the night of his dolorous agony, received all the filth of the temple, arising from the sacrifices. Hence, therefore, Christ drinking of it in his way, should seem to imply that all the guilt and iniquities of his people were emptied upon Jesus. He drank of it. The cup of... read more

Paul E. Kretzmann

The Popular Commentary by Paul E. Kretzmann - Psalms 110:1-7

A Psalm of Christ, Our King and High Priest. A psalm of David, altogether prophetic in character, setting before the Church of the Old Testament the Messiah as the Lord of David. No other psalm, no other prophecy, is quoted so often in the New Testament as this psalm. Cf Matthew 22:44; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:42; Acts 2:34; 1 Corinthians 15:25; Hebrews 1:13; 1 Peter 3:22. Compare also Psalms 45:6-Judges :, where the same idea is brought out. v. 1. The Lord said unto my Lord, literally,... read more
