Why do the nations so furiously rage together, and why do the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth rise up, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord, and against His Anointed.
(Psalms 2:1-2; Acts 4: 25-26)
Psalm 2 is a royal psalm. The subject of this psalm is the establishment of David upon his throne, notwithstanding the opposition made to it by his enemies. However this psalm goes beyond David and points to Christ.
