_ _ rod of iron — denotes severity (Revelation 2:27).

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 2:9

Them — Those that will not quietly submit to thee, shall be crushed and destroyed by thee. This was in part fulfilled, when the Jews who persisted in unbelief, were destroyed by the Romans power: And in the destruction of the Pagan power, when the Christian religion came to be established. But it will not be compleatly fulfilled, 'till all opposing power and principality be put down.
