Psalms 2:2

Context

2:2 The kings of the earth 1  form a united front; 2 

the rulers collaborate 3 

against the Lord and his anointed king. 4 

Psalms 2:6

Context

2:6 “I myself 5  have installed 6  my king

on Zion, my holy hill.”

1 sn The expression kings of the earth refers somewhat hyperbolically to the kings who had been conquered by and were subject to the Davidic king.

2 tn Or “take their stand.” The Hebrew imperfect verbal form describes their action as underway.

3 tn Or “conspire together.” The verbal form is a Niphal from יָסַד (yasad). BDB 413-14 s.v. יָסַד defines the verb as “establish, found,” but HALOT 417 s.v. II יסד proposes a homonym meaning “get together, conspire” (an alternate form of סוּד, sud).

4 tn Heb “and against his anointed one.” The Davidic king is the referent (see vv. 6-7).

5 tn The first person pronoun appears before the first person verbal form for emphasis, reflected in the translation by “myself.”

6 tn Or perhaps “consecrated.”
