A Study of Psalm 110 

Who was the LORD speaking to in Psalms 110:1 when the LORD says “Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.” Rabbinic Jews see this as a scribe was recording as God was speaking to David and not the Messiah.

The Rabbinic view stipulates that the Messiah, when He comes, will be a Man, a human born to ordinary human beings. His existence is derived from Deuteronomy 18:18 and as a man will rule on this earth, but never die.

But Christian view is that He is the Son of God who pre-existed even before being born into this world. ‘The LORD said to my Lord…’ Christians say that this is God the Father speaking from His throne to His Son.

The presentation here is the correct view. Alternate views, which make little sense, could be found in Jews for Judaism and Rabbi Toviah Singer.

Psalm 110

A Psalm of David: The LORD said unto my Lord, “Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.” — David was speaking, a Psalm he wrote; and in the original Hebrew it is: The LORD (יְהוָ֨ה YHVH, Yehovah) said unto my lord (לַֽאדֹנִ֗י ladoni; that is, David’s lord), “Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.”

— Christians identifies the Father speaking to his Son, who was also the Messiah, identified as the Word in the Targum, whom John wrote of him in his Gospel, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” John 1:1

— under the inspiration of God, or in the spirit of God, David alleged that there was a time when the Son’s enemies were not under his footstool. He has many enemies, but Satan, his archrival, being chief of them.

— The Targum is, “the Lord (יְהוָ֨ה) said in his Word.”

The LORD shall send the rod of Thy strength out of Zion. Rule Thou in the midst of Thine enemies!

Thy people shall be willing in the day of Thy power; in the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, Thou hast the dew of Thy youth.

The LORD hath sworn and will not repent: “Thou art a priest for ever, after the order of Melchizedek. — this “order of Melchizedek” is Yeshua, our High Priest. Hebrews 7:3 describes Melchizedek as being “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life, but made like the Son of God, [and one who] remains a priest continually.

— whoever Melchizedek is, he couldn’t have been the Father because he is the “priest of the Most High God.”

The LORD (יְהוָ֨ה) at Thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of His wrath. — the LORD; one of the 134 changes to Adonai listed by EW Bullinger in Appendix 32 of The Companion Bible; it should be “The LORD (יְהוָ֨ה YHVH, Yehovah” as in the original Text;

— this is a prime example of “the lying pen of the scribes” found in Jeremiah 8:8

— notice that the second Lord sitting on the right hand of the Father in verse 2 has become LORD (יְהוָ֨ה) in verse 5. By doing so, the Soferim blurred the evidence of another YHVH; he, being the Son of the Most High;

— by such tampering, the Sopherim corrupted the Sacred Text; hence the blinded Jews couldn’t figure out the second Being in the Godhead; he’s actually the Son in Psalm 2:7 and Proverbs 30:4.

“I will declare the decree: The LORD (יְהוָ֨ה) hath said unto Me, ‘Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten Thee” Psalm 2:7

“Who hath ascended up into heaven or hath descended? Who hath gathered the wind in His fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, if thou canst tell?” Proverbs 30:4

From the above, it is obvious that the LORD (יְהוָ֨ה) has a Son; and, teasing the sceptics. asks what is His name and what is His Son’s name.

He shall judge among the heathen, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall wound the heads over many countries.

He shall drink of the brook on the way; therefore shall He lift up the head.


Actually, there is only One יְהוָ֨ה Yehovah (and also one God; yet God is in the plural, Elohim) and many Scriptures testify to this, and this One יְהוָ֨ה or One God principle is found in Exodus 23:

20 Behold, I send an Angel (or messenger) before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.

21 Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him. Exodus 23:20-21

Hence the LORDs mentioned in Psalm 110:5 (and Genesis 18-19) were derivative. They were all carrying the message of the original יְהוָ֨ה Yehovah.

Yeshua, the Son, testifies He came in His Father’s name: John 5:43: I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not:

Same thing with the one God concept. God the Father, God the Son, yet there is only one Elohim. Jesus addresses the Father as “the only true God” (John 17:3).

Israel, today as in the past, has many blind shepherd:

“Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see” Isaiah 42:18

“His watchmen are blind; they are all ignorant; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark, sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber” Isaiah 56:10

  2. […] He is also the LORD יְהוָ֑ה” as proven in A Study of Psalm 110 and A Study of Isaiah 11; hence He is the Mighty God as well; it would be blasphemous to attribute […]
