The ruler or monarch of a country or realm. God is king of all the earth and human kings are called to rule in accordance with his will. The failure of kings in Israel and Judah after David led to the expectation of a coming king like David. This was fulfilled in Jesus Christ: the true King of Israel and all the world.
Royal PsalmsThese Psalms, although used in honour of the king of the day, possibly at his coronation, share the expectation of a greater king. The NT regards them as fulfilled in Jesus Christ:Ps 2:6-9; Ps 45:1; Ps 72:1; Ps 110:1; Ps 132:10
Jesus Christ is the true King of Israel and of the world
