In Psalm 2:4-6, God, who is enthroned in heaven laugh at these heathens. He rebuked them and terrifies them in his wrath. God has chosen Jesus Christ to be king over all the earth. Jesus Christ is the king of kings and lord of lords.

Psalm 2 Bible Study
1. Fear God
We must fear God. Fear God means to worship God and obey his commandments. Fear God is not being afraid and timid of God. In 2 Timothy 1:7, for God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. In 2 John 14:27, peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. In Romans 8:15, for ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. In Proverbs 1:7, the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
2. Surrender your problem to God
Blessed are those who take refuge in God. Whenever you face a problem, you should discuss it with God and pray for him to open a door to get you through it. In Matthew 11:28, come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. In Jeremiah 31:25, for I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
