    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:1

    ¶ ¿Por qu se amotinan los gentiles, y los pueblos piensan vanidad?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 2:1

    Verse 1. Why do the
    heathen rage ] It has been supposed that David composed this Psalm after he had taken Jerusalem from the Jebusites, and made it the head of the kingdom; 2 Sam. v. 7-9. The Philistines, hearing this, encamped in the valley of Rephaim, nigh to Jerusalem, and Josephus, Antiq. lib. vii. c. 4, says that all Syria, Phoenicia, and the other circumjacent warlike people, united their armies to those of the Philistines, in order to destroy David before he had strengthened himself in the kingdom. David, having consulted the Lord, 2 Sam. v. 17-19, gave them battle, and totally overthrew the whole of his enemies. In the first place, therefore, we may suppose that this Psalm was written to celebrate the taking of Jerusalem, and the overthrow of all the kings and chiefs of the neighbouring nations. In the second place we find from the use made of this Psalm by the apostles, Acts iv. 27, that David typified Jesus Christ; and that the Psalm celebrates the victories of the Gospel over the Philistine Jews, and all the confederate power of the heathen governors of the Roman empire.

    The heathen, ywg goyim, the nations; those who are commonly called the Gentiles.

    Rage, wgr rageshu, the gnashing of teeth, and tumultuously rushing together, of those indignant and cruel people, are well expressed by the sound as well as the meaning of the original word. A vain thing. Vain indeed to prevent the spread of the Gospel in the world. To prevent Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, from having the empire of his own earth. So vain were their endeavours that every effort only tended to open and enlarge the way for the all- conquering sway of the scepter of righteousness.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - We are here told who would appear as adversaries to Christ. As thi world is the kingdom of Satan, unconverted men, of every rank, party and character, are stirred up by him to oppose the cause of God. But the rulers of the earth generally have been most active. The truths an precepts of Christianity are against ambitious projects and worldl lusts. We are told what they aim at in this opposition. They woul break asunder the bands of conscience, and the cords of God' commandments; they will not receive, but cast them away as far as the can. These enemies can show no good cause for opposing so just and holy a government, which, if received by all, would bring a heaven upo earth. They can hope for no success in so opposing so powerful kingdom. The Lord Jesus has all power both in heaven and in earth, an is Head over all things to the church, notwithstanding the restles endeavours of his enemies. Christ's throne is set up in his church that is, in the hearts of all believers.
