The Certainty of the Righteous One’s Exaltation to the Throne
Though no author is ascribed, yet Acts 4:25, 26, attributes it to David. The psalm starts off with a question and ends with a blessing. In between the two, the answer is given to the query, and the sovereignty of God declared. There is an obvious Messianic content. The psalm reveals the purposes of God in the divine appointment of His Son to the kingship and rule of His people.
The New Testament attests to its prophetic content, and Acts 4:24–27 show how all the apostles confirmed this. Also, Paul, in Acts 13:32–33, and in Hebrews 1:5, establishes the psalm as speaking of Christ. Men are called upon to exercise wisdom, and to subject themselves to this King before it is too late.
