Psalm Chapter 2
V1 Heathen Jews consider anyone not Jewish a heathen, God considers
anyone that is not obedient to Him as heathen.
Rage to be tumultuous to be in commotion’ only appears in Psalms 2:1 where it denotes uproar and plotting of the wicked against the righteousness. The image here is one of a gathering lynch mob.
The first thing evil people do, in protest is to raise their voice level.
Imagine The same is Psalm 1:2 meditation, only here the meditation is to do evil. Saying: eat, sleep, walk and talk evil. Their planning is worthless, empty and to no purpose. They have NO fear of God.
V2 Set station, continue, present themselves, remaining, stand-fast Counsel sit down together, establish, lay for a foundations, instruct.
Imagine that! These leaders of countries are so impressed with themselves and have not fear of God, that they think they can sit down together--come into agreement--and make plans to fight against God-- and more absurdly they think they can win!! Psalm 93:4; Psalm 24:8(all the chapter) Psalm 50:1-6; Psalm 31:1-3; Psalm 61:1-4; Psalm 71:1-7 Psalm 89:1-8 That is why it is a vain thing--worthless; to no purpose, because they can NOT win against.
V3 Bands restraints, cord-something intwined; rope; chain. Evil people don’t want any restraints. Galatians 5:14-25, 1Corinthians 13 Ephesians 5:9-10 Romans 8:4-5. But the things we are not to do they want to live in and not be found guilty.
V 4 He who sits in the Heavens shall laugh. Jewish Bible says “Adonai looks at them in derision”. He looks at them as if they are foreign and/ or mockingly. His Words are unintelligible to them because they are not hearing; they don’t want to hear ergo they cannot understand.
Job 21:7-21 Ever feel like Job? Thinking nothing ever goes wrong with or to the evil people? Their end lis NOT glorious!! Isaiah 17:12-14. The nations will roar like the mighty oceans. The ocean is very powerful. The waves are loud and crashing, BUT on the contrary they will flee at His rebuke as chaff is blown away, as mountain winds carry away the clouds.
Psalm 37:1, 7-11 fret not yourself Psalm 35:5-6 as chaff Isaiah 29:5 small dust Hosea 13:3
V 5 Then He shall speak--to command and vex, affrighted, troubled Jewish Bible--”He terrifies them in His anger”
V6 Jesus: King--set = Anointed, to cast like metal = crowned, Anointed King Lord
V7 Prophecy of coming Messiah Acts 13:33, Hebrews 1:5-6, Hebrews 5:5
V8 Acts 1:8, Psalm 22:27-All ends of the world, Psalm 72:8!! Psalm 89:27 dominion of the Messiah Daniel 7:13-14
John 17:4-5 *2 Peter 3:9
V9 Rod of iron-harsh punish--end times prophecy Revelation 2:27, 12:5, 19:6
V10 punishment is coming if no repentance 1Timothy 2:1-6---This is OUR job!
