Psalm 2 Commentary

Psalm 2 Commentary

The eternal battle of evil against godliness comes to the fore once again: evil is fighting against the institution of the LORD. It is evil against the instituted kingship. Dominion is threatened by the combined forces of evil.

Our minds are quickly brought back to our own battles. The enemy fights the peace and the rule of Christ within the saint. Instead of meditating on the Law of the LORD day and night, you start thinking about problems. Fear occupies your mind endlessly. You want to fight back. You want to inflict pain on the attackers. Godliness disappears in the process. The devil wins the battle at this point.

But the One enthroned in heaven laughs. He has a solution for this confusion. The King, also called the Son, is installed as lord over all. The thought here is that the saint need not fear. Importantly, the saint must have the confidence that the Son wins the day, regardless. The real battle is actually against the Son. Let the saint elevate his battles to the Son, who alone is able to defeat the enemy.

Cast all your burdens upon the LORD Jesus Christ. He cares for you. Don’t fight the enemy by yourself. You can only sin in the process. An attack on the saint can always generate sinful elements: worry, fear, thoughts of revenge, possible injustice, and doubt. Leave it at the feet of the One enthroned in heaven. He alone can fight these battles while laughing.
