Does Jesus misquote Psalm 110: Who is speaking to whom?



110 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. No, Its basically saying the Most High said unto His Son, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. The Most High is our LORD and Christ is our Lord.


showing two persons so disproves the trinity


Psalm 110 is a psalm of king David, who is in the line of descent leading to the Christ. When religious leaders tried to trap Jesus due to their disbelief in Him being the Lord David prophesied about, He quoted verse 1 of that Psalm. He asked them, "What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They said to him, The Son of David. "He said to them, How then does David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 'The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool'? "If David then call him 'Lord', how is he his son?" He quoted it accurately and forced His detractors to think on the conundrum - David foretells one who would be of his lineage (his 'Son', the Messiah) being addressed by David as his Lord. When Jesus accurately quoted that ancient prophecy, to make religious people stop and think, we are told, "And no man was able to answer him a word, neither did any from that day forth ask him any more questions." (Matthew 22:42-46) Yahweh is the first Lord in that Psalm; Messiah is the next Lord mentioned, who is also David's Lord. But there are not two Lords because the Bible tells Christians that there is only one Lord for them, the Lord Jesus Christ - 1 Corinthians 8:6. This one Lord is the one God - not a second Lord or a second God. The conundrum only becomes brilliantly clear when you recognize just who Jesus really is.


Christ's kingdom. - Glorious things are here spoken of Christ. Not only he should be superior to all the kings of the earth, but he then existed in glory as the eternal Son of God. Sitting is a resting posture: after services and sufferings, to give law, to give judgment. It is a remaining posture: he sits like a king for ever. All his enemies are now in a chain, but not yet made his footstool. And his kingdom, being set up, shall be kept up in the world, in despite of all the powers of darkness. Christ's people are a willing people. The power of the Spirit, going with the power of the world, to the people of Christs, is effectual to make them willing. They shall attend him in the beautiful attire of holiness; which becomes his house for ever. And he shall have many devoted to him. The dew of our youth, even in the morning of our days, ought to be consecrated to our Lord Jesus. Christ shall not only be a King, but a Priest. He is God's Minister to us, and our Advocate with the Father, and so is the Mediator between God and man. He is a Priest of the order of Melchizedek, which was before that of Aaron, and on many accounts superior to it, and a more lively representation of Christ's priesthood. Christ's sitting at the right hand of God, speaks as much terror to his enemies as happiness to his people. The effect of this victory shall be the utter ruin of his enemies. We have here the Redeemer saving his friends, and comforting them. He shall be humbled; he shall drink of the brook in the way. The wrath of God, running in the curse of the law, may be considered as the brook in the way of his undertaking. Christ drank of the waters of affliction in his way to the throne of glory. But he shall be exalted. What then are we? Has the gospel of Christ been to us the power of God unto salvation? Has his kingdom been set up in our hearts? Are we his willing subjects? Once we knew not our need of his salvation, and we were not willing that he should reign over us. Are we willing to give up every sin, to turn from a wicked, insnaring world, and rely only on his merits and mercy, to have him for our Prophet, Priest, and King? and do we desire to be holy? To those who are thus changed, the Saviour's sacrifice, intercession, and blessing belong.


The subject of Psalm 110 is The Priest King and the Priest King here spoken of is David's Lord, a mysterious personage typified by Melchizedek, and looked for by the Jews as the Messiah. He is none other than the apostle and high priest of our profession, Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. The Psalm describes the appointment of the kingly priest, his followers, his battles, and his victory. Hope this helps you Glenda.

TONI101: Psalm 110

Psalm 110:1 is recorded in all four gospels. I don't see where Jesus misquoted it.


The confusion comes from hiding God's name for the reader. They explained by saying whenever you see LORD that is God, and whenever you see Lord that is Jesus. Jesus of course understood the difference. Here is a brief video that explains it:

Jesus never read the bible.


All of Jesus' quotes are fiction, because he is fiction.
