The application of this Psalm to Christ, or the Messiah, is not only obvious, but the words “ against the Lord, and against his Anointed,” are cited in the New Testament,

against the Lord and against his Christ,” as the apostle Peter appealed to the testimony of God as he spake by the mouth of his servant David. Of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together, for to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.' Thus the enmity between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman was manifested at the first, as Jesus said unto the chief priests, and captains of the temple, and the elders, This is your hour, and the power of darkness. The earliest persecutions of the children of the kingdom are shown in the Book of Revelation, as a great red dragon stood ready to devour the man.child so soon as it was born. But the counsel of the Lord has no less determined, that that manchild shall rule the nations with a rod of iron : and that in the day of the wrath of the Lamb, and of his power, He shall dash the heathen in pieces like a potter's vessel, however the kings of the earth set themselves, and whatever counsel the rulers take together, against the Lord, and against his Christ. As surely as the Lord of glory was slain, by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, so surely shall the decree be fulfilled, that he will give unto Christ, his Anointed, the heathen for his inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for his possession.
