1-3:  The kingdom;
4:  the priesthood;
5-6:  the conquest;
7:  and the passion of Christ.
A.M. 2962.
B.C. 1042.
(Title.)This Psalm was probably composed by David after Nathan's prophetic address; and, from the grandeur of the subject and the sublimity of the expressions, it is evident that it can only refer, as the ancient Jews fully acknowledged, to the royal dignity, priesthood, victories, and triumphs of the MESSIAH.The Lord.
 Book 5, Series 1. Gog attacks Israel. (“The Placement of the Psalms in Prophecy” by B. Anstey)
 In Psalm 109 Christ is remembered in His humiliation; in Psalm 110 He is seen in His exaltation. This psalm is the divine answer to the cry of the preceding psalm. Upon resurrection the Lord Jesus is seen as ascended into the heavens according to the will of God (vs. 1). See also Acts 2:32-35, Heb. 10:12-13. (Book 5. by B. Anstey)
 In this psalm God speaks for Christ, in answer to the prayer of Psalms 109. Thus while Psalms 109, unfolds God’s ways with Christ in humiliation, Psalms 110 presents God’s purpose for Christ in exaltation. (Psalms 110 by H. Smith)
 In the days of Christ’s humiliation men spoke against Christ with a lying tongue; they fought against Christ without a cause, and “persecuted the poor and needy man” (Psa. 109:2-3; 16). God’s answer is to exalt Christ to the place of supreme power in heaven, there to wait until His enemies are made His footstool, when He will have the place of supreme power on earth. (Psalms 110 by H. Smith)
 It is more frequently cited by New Testament writers than any other single portion of Scripture. It is quoted in each of the synoptic gospels to prove that David’s son will be David’s Lord (Matt. 22:43-44; Mark 12:36-37); Luke 20:42-43). It is quoted by Peter in Acts 2:34-35, to prove the exaltation of Christ; by Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:25, to enforce the fact that all Christ’s enemies will be annulled. In Hebrews 1:13, it is used to prove the superiority of Christ over angels; in Hebrews 5:6, to prove His Melchizedek priesthood; in Hebrews 7:17-21, to prove the unchangeable character of His priesthood, and in Hebrews 10:13, to prove His present waiting attitude. (Psalms 110 by H. Smith)
 This is where He has been through this present period of grace (approximately 2000 years). But He who was rejected now reigns, and that publicly. His people who once rejected Him are “willing” (being restored to Him) in this the day of His power. Christ is viewed as King ruling “out of Zion” (vs. 2-3). (Book 5. by B. Anstey)
 (vv. 2-4) The verses that follow unfold God’s purpose for Christ. God has decreed that He shall rule from Zion in the midst of His enemies. In the very scene of His humiliation, and man’s hostility, His power will be displayed. (Psalms 110 by H. Smith)
 Ps. 110:1 gives us the answer to Christ having glorified God perfectly all through His earthly path, taking only that refreshment that came, as He passed along (v. 7). (Hunt’s Sayings - 294 by R. Hunt)
