(An interpretation for today. The day of the L-rd)
1Why do nations assemble,
and peoples plot vain things;
Why do nations assemble: Antisemitism and hatred of the Jewish people.
and peoples plot vain things: Throughout the world and particularly the middle east there are plans and schemes to destroy Israel and the Jewish people.
2kings of the earth take their stand,
and regents intrigue together
against the Lord and against His anointed?
kings of the earth: The world leaders and heads of nations, leaders of states and government organizations and leaders of religious foundations and organizations including Churches and Synagogues and leaders of groups of people in general and those that promote antisemitism.
against the Lord and against His anointed?: The G-d of Israel and Elijah the HaMoshiach.
3“Let us break the cords of their yoke,
shake off their ropes from us!”
Let us break the cords of their yoke: Kings who take their stand and regents who intrigue together do not bind the L-rd and His anointed.
4He who is enthroned in heaven laughs;
the Lord mocks at them.
5Then He speaks to them in anger,
terrifying them in His rage,
Then He speaks to them in anger: The L-rd speaks through His scripture and His anointed.
6“But I have installed My king
on Zion, My holy mountain!”
But I have installed My king on Zion: This verse is originally for King David. Today it is prophetic for His anointed Elijah the HaMoshiach who is to clear the way for the L-rd to return to His Temple which must be rebuilt first. When the Temple is installed so to will His anointed be installed in an abode to be honored (Isaiah 11/10).
7Let me tell of the decree:
the Lord said to me,
“You are My son,
I have fathered you this day.
You are My son: Israel was G-d’s first begotten son and then David and then Solomon. Son of G-d is a term of endearment and signifies a close relationship with G-d. This verse was originally for King David. Today it is for Elijah the HaMoshaich who is His anointed Keith Ellis McCarty. A man after G-d’s own heart.
8Ask it of Me,
and I will make the nations your domain;
your estate, the limits of the earth.
your estate, the limits of the earth: G-d’s anointed king is described in Isaiah 53 which provides in verse 12 “Assuredly, I will give him the many as his portion, He shall receive the multitude as his spoil.” The portion and the spoil will cover the earth.
9You can smash them with an iron mace,
shatter them like potter’s ware.”
smash them with an iron mace: “them” in the days of King David were all of the enemies of G-d that he defeated with the sword, mace, rod and arrow. For today “them” are the world leaders and heads of nations, leaders of states and government organizations and leaders of religious foundations and organizations including Churches and Synagogues and leaders of groups of people in general and those that promote antisemitism.
Isaiah 11/4 says that G-d’s anointed king “shall strike down a land with the rod of his mouth And slay the wicked with the breath of his lips.” It will be with the Jewish Bible and the words G-d has His anointed speak and write (type) spoken to him and through him by G-d and the word of the L-rd.
10So now, O kings, be prudent;
accept discipline, you rulers of the earth!
11Serve the Lord in awe;
tremble with fright,
12 pay homage in good faith,
lest He be angered, and your way be doomed
in the mere flash of His anger.
Happy are all who take refuge in Him.
