If Psalm 1 is about the blessed man, then Psalm 2 is about the rebellious man. In many ways Psalm 1 and 2 parallel Genesis 1-4. In Genesis 1 and 2 Adam was the blessed man. Beginning in Genesis 3, Adam became the rebellious man. In Genesis 4, Cain continues the rebellion and went out from God. Now in Psalm 2 the descendants of Adam are in full rebellion against God, but God has the final word. Thus, Psalm 2 is an exhortation to humankind to abandon their rebellious plans against the Lord and His anointed king and to submit to the authority of the Son whom God has ordained to rule the nations with a rod of iron.
