THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 22 - Verse 44

Verse 44. The Lord said, etc. This is the language of David. "Jehovah said unto my Lord"—the Messiah—" Sit thou," etc. This was a prediction respecting the exaltation of Christ. To be raised to the right hand of a king was significant of favor, trust, and power. See Barnes "Mt 20:21".

This was done respecting Christ, Mr 16:19; Ac 7:55; Ro 8:34; Eph 1:20; Heb 1:3; Heb 8:1; 10:12.

 

Thine enemies thy footstool. A footstool is that which is under the feet when we are sitting—implying that we have it under subjection, or at our control. So he shall put all enemies under his feet—all his spiritual foes—all that rise up against him, Ps 2:9,12 Heb 10:13; 1 Co 15:25.
