Ps 2

Ps. 2 The theme of kingship pervades this psalm. While most of the kingship psalms focus on either divine or human kingship, Ps. 2 masterfully integrates both, contrasting the divine King and His human counterpart with the hostile “kings of the earth.” The psalm has no title, but the New Testament ascribes it to David (Acts 4:25). The New Testament frequently quotes and alludes to this psalm (Matt. 3:17; 17:5; Acts 4:25–27; 13:33; Rom. 1:4; Heb. 1:5; 5:5). Jesus Christ is the Son of David and the Son of God; the promises given to David come to fulfillment in Him.
