The Lord at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
I found this passage to be very perplexing, but a commentary from F.B. Meyer is very helpful,
“The offices of priest and king were jealously kept apart in the old Hebrew monarchy, so the psalmist has to travel into the childhood of the world to find the type of a priesthood. Jesus is King and Priest after a more ancient and abiding order, which, it is testified, is based on a timeless life. Our Lord shall come to the throne from the battlefield. He shall bruise the serpent’s head, but He needs the refreshment of our love and faith. That is the wayside brook.”
Could F.B. be correct? The LORD needs the refreshment of our love and faith; that we are the wayside brook? What a heartwarming thought.
