The book of Psalms is tied together at significant points by the twin themes of ‘wisdom’ and ‘the king’. The first Psalm was a ‘wisdom’ psalm, pointing out the way of The Blessed. This second Psalm introduces God’s king. He is a king who faces opposition from the rulers of the world. He is a king who invites his enemies to find refuge in him now, while they can. For there is no refuge from God’s ultimate rule, only in it.
