Psalm 111 - Hallelujah! Praise The LORD JESUS!








Psalm 111 NIV








1Praise The LORD.







I will extol The LORD with all my heart






in the council of the upright and in the assembly.






2Great Are the Works of The LORD;
They are pondered by all who delight in them.
3Glorious and Majestic Are HIS Deeds,
and His Righteousness Endures forever.
4HE Has Caused His Wonders To Be Remembered;
The LORD Is Gracious and Compassionate.






5HE Provides food for those who fear HIM;
HE Remembers HIS Covenant forever.
6HE Has Shown HIS people the Power of HIS Works,
Giving them the lands of other nations.
7The Works of HIS Hands Are Faithful and Just;
all His Precepts Are Trustworthy.
8They Are Established for ever and ever,
Enacted in faithfulness and uprightness.
9HE Provided Redemption For HIS people;
HE Ordained HIS Covenant forever—
Holy and Awesome Is HIS Name.

10The Fear of The LORD is the beginning of wisdom;






all who follow HIS Precepts have good understanding.
To HIM Belongs Eternal Praise.










PSALM 111








This and many of the Psalms that follow it seem to have been penned by David for the service of the church in their solemn feasts, and not upon any particular occasion. This is a Psalm of praise. The title of it is “Hallelujah-Praise ye The LORD,” intimating that we must address ourselves to the use of this Psalm with hearts to praise GOD.   


It is composed alphabetically, each sentence beginning with a several letter of the Hebrew alphabet.


The psalmist, exhorting to praise GOD,


I. Sets himself for an example (v. 1).


II. Furnishes us with matter for praise from the Works of GOD.

1. The Greatness of His Works and the Glory of them.

2. The Righteousness of them.

3. The Goodness of them.

4. The Power of them.

5. The Conformity of them to HIS WORD of Promise.

6. The Perpetuity of them.


These observations are intermixed (v. 2-9).


III. He recommends the Holy Fear of GOD, and full obedience to HIS Commands, as the most acceptable way of praising GOD (v. 10).

Who is Who in Psalm 110:1?






Who is Who in Psalm 110:1?






The LORD Says to my LORD:

“Sit At MY Right Hand

Until I Make YOUR enemies

a Footstool for YOUR Feet.”



Hebrew Text




JEHOVAH(FATHER) says to my(David’s) LORD(JESUS CHRIST), sit at MY(FATHER’S) Right Hand Until I(FATHER)Make YOUR(JESUS’) enemies a footstool for YOUR(JESUS’) Feet.






These are The WORDS of JEHOVAH The FATHER To HIS SON The MESSIAH; the "Adon", or LORD, spoken of in Isaiah 6:1, The ONE LORD JESUS, and Only Potentate; The LORD of all, The LORD of David, and of every believer; not by right of creation only, as of all mankind; but by redemption, having bought them; and by right of marriage, having espoused them; and by their own consent, they owning HIM to be their LORD.


The WORDS Said To HIM By JEHOVAH, as follow, Were Said In HIS Mind, In HIS Eternal Purpose and Decree; which HE, Lying In HIS Bosom When HE Foreordained HIM to be The REDEEMER; and in the council and covenant of peace, When HE Promised HIM this Glory as the Reward of HIS Sufferings; and in the prophecies of the Old Testament, which speak as of the Sufferings of CHRIST, so of the Glory that should follow; and when the fact was done, when, after HIS Death, Resurrection, Ascension, and entrance into heaven.


HE Was Placed At FATHER’s Right Hand; of Power and Majesty; expressive of the Honor Done To CHRIST, and The Glory Put On HIM in the human nature, such as angels nor any creature ever had, Hebrews 1:13, it being always accounted honorable to sit at the Right Hand of great personages, 1 Kings 2:19, and also of rule, and power, and authority; Being upon the same Throne with HIS FATHER, Exercising the same government over angels and men; "Sitting" is explained by "Reigning" in 1 Corinthians 15:25.


It also denotes having done HIS Work, and to satisfaction; and therefore is set down, being entered into HIS Rest, and having ceased from HIS Work and Labor, enjoying the Presence of HIS Divine FATHER; in which is fullness of joy, and at whose Right Hand are pleasures for evermore: and it also signifies the continuance of regal honor and power; HE Sits and Continues a King as well as a Priest forever.


Until I Make YOUR enemies YOUR footstool; CHRIST Has HIS enemies; all the enemies of HIS people are HIS; some are overcome already by HIS, as sin, satan, and the world; and the Jews, HIS enemies, who would not have HIM to reign over them, have been destroyed: but as yet all things are not put under HIS Feet, which will be; as antichrist, and the kings of the earth that are with HIM, who will be overcome by HIM; the beast and false prophet will be taken and cast into the lake of fire; where also the old serpent, the devil, after he has been bound and loosed, wall be cast likewise; and when the last enemy, death, shall be destroyed; till that time comes, CHRIST Reigns and Will Reign, and afterwards too, even to all eternity. 


The allusion is to the custom of conquerors treading upon the necks of the conquered; see Joshua 10:24.










Psalm 110 - JEHOVAH Says To HIS SON JESUS, "Sit At MY Right HAND"






Psalm 110 NIV



Of David. A psalm.







1 The LORD Says to my LORD:

“Sit At MY Right Hand





Until I Make YOUR enemies






a Footstool for YOUR Feet.”








2The LORD Will Extend YOUR Mighty Scepter From 

Zion, 



Saying,




“Rule in the midst of YOUR enemies!”







3YOUR Troops will be willing
on YOUR day of battle.
Arrayed in holy splendor,
YOUR young men will come To YOU
like dew from the morning’s womb.


4The LORD Has Sworn

and Will Not Change HIS Mind:


“YOU Are A Priest forever,
in the order of Melchizedek.”






5The LORD Is At YOUR Right Hand ;
HE Will Crush kings on the Day of HIS Wrath.







6HE Will Judge the nations, Heaping up the dead
and Crushing the rulers of the whole earth.

7HE Will Drink From a brook along the way,
and so HE Will Lift HIS Head High.

Psalm 109 - The Betrayal of Judas Iscariot Is Prophesied in Verse 8











Psalm 109 NIV



For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.










1My GOD, WHOM I praise,
Do Not Remain Silent,
2for people who are wicked and deceitful
have opened their mouths against me;
they have spoken against me with lying tongues.






3With words of hatred they surround me;
they attack me without cause.
4In return for my friendship they accuse me,
but I am a man of prayer.
5They repay me evil for good,
and hatred for my friendship.
6Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy;
let an accuser stand at his right hand.
7When he is tried, let him be found guilty,
and may his prayers condemn him.


8 May his days be few;
may another take his place of leadership.






9May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.
10May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be drivena from their ruined homes.
11May a creditor seize all he has;
may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
12May no one extend kindness to him
or take pity on his fatherless children.
13May his descendants be cut off,
their names blotted out from the next generation.
14May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered Before The LORD;
may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.
15May their sins always remain Before The LORD,
that HE May Blot Out their name from the earth.
16For he never thought of doing a kindness,
but hounded to death the poor
and the needy and the brokenhearted.
17He loved to pronounce a curse—
may it come back on him.
He found no pleasure in blessing—
may it be far from him.
18He wore cursing as his garment;
it entered into his body like water,
into his bones like oil.
19May it be like a cloak wrapped about him,
like a belt tied forever around him.
20May this be The LORD'S payment to my accusers,
to those who speak evil of me.


21But YOU, Sovereign LORD,
help me For YOUR Name’s Sake;
out of the goodness of YOUR Love, Deliver me.






22For I am poor and needy,
and my heart is wounded within me.
23I fade away like an evening shadow;
I am shaken off like a locust.
24My knees give way from fasting;
my body is thin and gaunt.


25I am an object of scorn to my accusers;
when they see me, they shake their heads.


26Help me, LORD my GOD;
save me according to YOUR Unfailing Love.

27Let them know that It Is YOUR Hand,
that YOU, LORD, Have Done it.
28While they curse, May YOU Bless;
may those who attack me be put to shame,
but May YOUR servant rejoice.

29May my accusers be clothed with disgrace
and wrapped in shame as in a cloak.
30With my mouth I will greatly extol The LORD;
in the great throng of worshipers I will praise HIM.
31For HE Stands at the right hand of the needy,
to save their lives from those who would condemn them.
