Psalm 2 Why Heathen Rage

Psalm 2:1 WHY do the heathen rage,
        and the people imagine a vain thing?

And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. 1 Samuel 8:7

According to all the works
which they have done
since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt

even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. 1 Samuel 8:8

God understood that they wanted to worship like the nations:

Ezek. 20:30 Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom after their abominations? 

Ezek. 20:31 For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you. 

"What you have in your mind shall never be, when you say, 'We will be like the Gentiles, like the families in other countries, serving wood and stone.' Ezek 20:32 

"It is said, in Tosaphoth, that the sin lay 'not in demanding a king, but in the mode of so doing, 'like all the nations' virtually equivalent to a wish to become like surrounding idolaters." Professor Keil finds the wrong "In... nothing more than forsaking him to serve other gods." (Haley, p. 229-230).

"The religious activities by which the people sought to please Yahweh provoked only scorn from the prophet, for the festal and cultic activities obscured Yahweh's real nature and activity (4:4-5).

"If we take Amos' words as they stand, there seems to be little doubt that he condemned the entire religious pattern--feasts, sacrifices, ritual music, offerings, tithes--everything. Jerald LaRue, Old Testament Life and Liturature (ch 18) 

The heathen is that to which God abandoned Israel BECAUSE of musical idolatry.

Psa. 115:2 Wherefore should the heathen say,
        Where is now their God?
Psa. 115:3 But our God is in the heavens:
        he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.
Psa. 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold,
       the work of men’s hands.

Psa. 115:6 They have ears, but they hear not:
      noses have they, but they smell not:
Psa. 115:7 They have hands, but they handle not:
      feet have they, but they walk not:
      neither speak they through their throat.
Psa. 115:8 They that make them are like unto them;
      so is every one that trusteth in them.

Is. 59:2 But your iniquities have separated
       between you and your God,
       and your sins have hid his face from you,
       that he will not hear.
Is. 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, 
      and your fingers with iniquity;
      your lips have spoken lies,
      your tongue hath muttered perverseness.
Is. 59:4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth:
      they trust in vanity, and speak lies;
      they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.
Is. 59:12 For our transgressions are multiplied before thee,
      and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions
       are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
Is. 59:13 In transgressing and lying against the LORD,
      and departing away from our God,
      speaking oppression and revolt,
      conceiving and uttering from the heart
       words of falsehood
Psa. 1:1 Blessed is the man that
      walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,
      nor standeth in the way of sinners,
      nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psa. 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD;
      and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Psa. 1:3 And he shall
      be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
      that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
      his leaf also shall not wither;
      and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Psa. 1:4 The ungodly are not so:
      but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Psa. 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied
      as with marrow and fatness;
      and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:
Psa. 63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed,
       and meditate on thee in the night watches.
Psa. 63:7 Because thou hast been my help,
       therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
Is. 59:11 We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves:
      we look for judgment, but there is none;
      for salvation, but it is far off from us.

Is. 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
      and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob,
      saith the LORD.
Is. 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them,
      saith the LORD;
      My spirit that is upon thee,
      and my words which I have put in thy mouth,
      shall not depart out of thy mouth,
      nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
      nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed,
      saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
Psa. 9:16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah. (probably similar to the modern affettuoso to indicate solemnity of movement); by implication, a

In their solemn festivals they displayed the most extravagant fury in their dances in armour, as well as in the accompanying music of flutes, cymbals, and drums.

I'll suffer him not, nor, for my part, while I'm alive, will I allow him to be corrupted. But you, who are pleading his cause for a son so profligate, was this same your own training, when you were a young man? I declare that for your first twenty years you had not even this much liberty, to move your foot out of the house even a finger's length away from your tutor.

When it did happen so, this evil, too, was added to the evil; both pupil and preceptor were esteemed disgraced. Before the rising of the sun had you not come to the school for exercise, no slight punishment would you have had at the hands of the master of the school.

There did they exercise themselves rather with running, wrestling, the quoit, the javelin, boxing, the ball, and leaping,
        rather than with harlots or with kissing; there did they prolong their lives,
        and not in secret-lurking holes.
Then, when from the hippodrome and school of exercise you had returned home, clad in your belted frock, upon a stool by your masters would you sit;
        and there, when you were reading your book,
        if you made a mistake in a single syllable,

On Psalm II

From the Exposition of the Second Psalm, by the Holy Bishop Hippolytus.

When he came into the world, He was manifested as God and man. And it is easy to perceive the man in Him, when He hungers and shows exhaustion, and is weary and athirst, and withdraws in fear, and is in prayer and in grief, and sleeps on a boat's pillow, and entreats the removal of the cup of suffering, and sweats in an agony, and is strengthened by an angel,

and betrayed by a Judas, and mocked by Caiaphas, and set at nought by Herod, and scourged by Pilate,
and derided by the soldiers, and nailed to the tree by the Jews,
and with a cry commits His spirit to His Father, and drops His head and gives up the ghost, and has His side pierced with a spear, and is wrapped in linen and laid in a tomb, and is raised by the Father on the third day.

And the divine in Him, on the other hand, is equally manifest, when He is worshipped by angels, and seen by shepherds, and waited for by Simeon, and testified of by Anna, and inquired after by wise men, and pointed out by a star, and at a marriage makes wine of water, and chides the sea when tossed by the violence of winds, and walks upon the deep, and makes one see who was blind from birth, and raises Lazarus when dead for four days, and works many wonders, and forgives sins, and grants power to His disciples.

The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. Ps.19:8
