Jesus Both King and King's Son
Psalm 72:1-20
Give the king your judgments, O God, and your righteousness to the king's son.…

"The king — the king's son." We see that our Lord is here termed both "king" and "the king's son"; both as respect to His human nature and also as to His Divine origin; for the Father of the universe may, of course, be properly denominated King. Agreeably to this designation we find on Turkish coins the inscription, "Sultan, son of Sultan."

(George Phillips.)
