I'm still not grasping the point, sorry.

Ah. Another expert on Talmud. I swear, there are more experts here than in my Synagogue. Seriously.
Further, both the Midrash on Psalms and the Babylonian Talmud recognize Psalm 110 as referencing the Messiah.
I'm sorry, I don't see how this supports your position.
If you don't believe me, then perhaps you'll listen to the Encyclopedia Judaica:
No, I'm hung up on the fact that the text mentions a king on his throne and a high priest on his throne. Not one guy on two thrones.
I assume you're hang up with the translation is keyed on the plural "crowns" in the passage?
"For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.
