Psalms - Songs from a Shepherd's Harp

Psalm 2 – Crown him with many crowns

Introduction: Psalm 2 is a royal or coronation psalm. Quoted or aluded to over 18x in NT, Psalm 2 is Messianic
(Acts 4:24-27; 13:33; Heb. 1:5; 5:5; Rev. 2:27; 12:5; 19:15).
We hear four speakers:

I. The voice of the nations - Conspiracy (1-3)

a) The People
b) The Plot
c) The Prophecy

II. The voice of the Father – Mockery (4-6)

a) God Laughs
b) God Speaks
c) God Crowns

III. The voice of the Son – Victory (7-9)

a) His Sonship
• “You are my Son”
• “Today I have begotten you”

b) His Heirship
• Universal Possession
• Unlimited Power

IV. The voice of the Spirit – Opportunity (10-12) (1)

Conclusion: “Repent or perish!”

The Spirit offers rebels conditions of peace:
• “Be wise,…instructed” – Intellect
• “Serve the LORD” – Will
• “Kiss the Son” – Heart
