Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 2:6

_ _ The purpose here declared, in its execution, involves their overthrow.

_ _ Yet — literally, “and,” in an adversative sense.

_ _ I have set — anointed, or firmly placed, with allusion in the Hebrew to “casting an image in a mould.” The sense is not materially varied in either case.

_ _ my king — appointed by Me and for Me (Numbers 27:18).

_ _ upon my holy hill of Zion — Zion, selected by David as the abode of the ark and the seat of God’s visible residence (1 Kings 8:1); as also David, the head of the Church and nation, and type of Christ, was called holy, and the Church itself came to be thus named (Psalms 9:11; Psalms 51:18; Psalms 99:2; Isaiah 8:18; Isaiah 18:7, etc.).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 2:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 2:6

Yet — Notwithstanding all their artifices and combinations. My king — Who ruleth in my stead, and according to my will, and for my glory. Zion — Over my church and people. Zion strictly taken, was an hill on the north part of Jerusalem, where there was a strong fort, called the city of David, but in a more large sense it is put for the city of Jerusalem, for the temple of Jerusalem, built upon the hill of Moriah, which was either a part of mount Sion, or adjoining to it; for the church of the Jews, and for the Christian church.
