Psalm 2

The proper response to God’s chosen ruler of Israel.

1–3 Rebellious nations
4–6 God’s sovereign rule
7–9 God establishes His king
10–12 The nations must honor the king

  • In Bible times the relationship between a great king and kings subject to him was often spoken of in terms of “servant” and “son” (v. 7).
  • How does Psalm 1 begin and Psalm 2 end? How do these two Psalms orient you as you begin reading the Psalms?
