The Enemies of Christ
Psalm 2:6
Yet have I set my king on my holy hill of Zion.

I. THE ENEMIES OF CHRIST. Great men described here partly from their wickedness, and partly from their weakness. They imagine vain things, but cannot carry then: out.

II. CHRIST THE LORD. The prophet brings in God the Father speaking, and the Son answering. The words of the Father are, "I have set My King"; where we have the inauguration of Christ, or His calling to the crown: the answer of the Son, "I will preach the law," which sets forth His willing obedience to publish and proclaim the laws of the kingdom: the reply of the Father, containing the reward that Christ was to have upon the publication of the gospel; which was an addition to His empire, by the conversion and access of the Gentiles, and the confusion of His enemies.

III. ADMONITION TO THE PRINCES AND JUDGES OF THE EARTH. What are they taught? To know their duty, and to do it. And the time for doing it is now. The reason is double, drawn from His wrath and the consequent punishment, and from the happy condition of those who learn to know Him, and fear, and serve, and adore Him.

(William Nicholson.)
