I. Satan incites people to fruitlessly join together to meditate on rebelling against God's authority in their lives
1 Why do the nations rage, and the people plot/imagine 1:2 a vain thing? Acts 4:25; 13:33; Heb 1:5; 5:5
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed 1Sam 16, saying
3 "Let us break piel their bonds in pieces and cast away hiphil their cords from us." Isa 14:14 Satan leads rebels
Pr 11:21 Though they join forces, the wicked will not go unpunished; but the posterity of the righteous will be delivered.
II. God mocks the mockers and will devastatingly destroy those who displease Him, yet will establish His chosen
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision 1:1. Ps 11:4; 37:13; 59:8; Pr 1:26
5 Then He shall speak/promisepiel to them in His wrath, and distress piel them in His deep displeasure: Ex 32; Dt 32; Nah 1; Rev
6 "Yet I have set/installed My King on My holy hill of Zion."
Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
III. God establishes His leadership to obliterate the rebels and inherit His blessings
7 "I will declare piel the decree: The LORD has said to Me, ' You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ac 4:25; 13:33; Heb 4:7
2Sam 7:14 I will be his father, and he shall be my son.
8 Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.
9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash piel them to pieces like a potter's vessel.' " Rev 2:27; 12:5; 19:15
Rev 2:27 ' He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels' as I also have received from My Father;
IV. The wise humbly submit and serve in fear, joy, and trust, and are blessed as a result (instead of perishing)
10 Now therefore, be wise hiph, O kings; be chastened/instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Dt 6:12-15; Heb 12:25,28-29
12a Kiss piel the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way 1:6, when His wrath is kindled but a little.
12b Blessed 1:1 are all those who put their trust in Him.
Ps 5:10 Pronounce them guilty, O God! Let them fall by their own counsels; Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions, For they have rebelled against You. 11 But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. 7:1; 11:1; 16:1; 17:7, etc.
