Psalm 2

I thought that I might take a stab at interpreting this psalm. It is so full of meaning (as are all the psalms) that I didn't want to miss what it has to say. But When I read this introduction by Spurgeon I realized he did a much better job than I ever could. I then thought maybe I could paraphrase it but that too became something I did not want to do. So here is a direct quote from his "Treasury of David, Volume I"

Why do the nations rage, why do the people plot in vain?
The Kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
"Let us break their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us."

He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in His wrath; and terrify them in his furry, saying,
"As for me I have set my king on Zion, my Holy hill."

I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, "You are my son; today I have begotten you.
Ask of me and I shall make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them to pieces like a potters vessel."

Now, therefore, O kings, be wise, be warned, O rulers of the earth.
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you parish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled.
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
