Heathen kingdoms have continuously rebelled against God and His laws. Even kings of His own people, the Israelites have turned their backs against Him. The psalmist prophesied that there was to be a King in the future who would break and dash rebellious nations to pieces like pieces of pottery. That King, the Son of God would rule from His holy hill of Zion.
The psalmist presented the problem: Rebellious kings; the solution: The King of Zion, the Son of God; the necessary response: Serve the Lord in humble submission. “Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.”
