Spoke 2

The Heathen Rage

Psalm 2 chain Psalm 46

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Psalm 2.1f

The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

Psalm 46.1f

The profound integration of the Second Psalm with the nature of the Eternal Godhead is echoed here in Psalm 46 (Spoke 2, Cycle 3). Within the Book of Psalms, the words "heathen" and "rage*" are found together only in the two verses quoted above. The only other place they are found together in all the KJV Bible is in Acts 13.33 when Psalm 2 is quoted with specific reference to its ordinal position as the Second Psalm. We have therefore an internal KeyLink between Psalm 2 (2 = 21 i.e. Spoke 2, Cycle 1) and Psalm 46 (46 = 23 i.e. Spoke 2, Cycle 3)

PPsalm( 21 ) chain PPsalm( 23 )

There are many links from Psalm 46 to various aspects of Spoke 2 of the Bible Wheel and various Inner Wheels and Inner Cycles. I begin with the opening verse of Psalm 46:

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. ... The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth.

Very similar language is found in in Isaiah 24 (Spoke 2 Cycle 2):

And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

The opening words of this verse form a KeyLink between Isaiah 24 and Jeremiah, as explained in Fear, the Pit, and the Snare. The common language is impossible to miss: Both Isaiah 24 and Psalm 46 speak of the earth suffering great cataclysm, expressed in words found in the set (earth, moved, removed, fear, shake). There are probable many more KeyLinks between these verses, but here is the most obvious. Serching the KJV for all verses containing the set (earth, removed) within two verses of the word "shake" yields exactly two passages: Psalm 46 (46 = 23) and Isaiah 24 (24 = 22):

PPsalms( 23 ) chain PIsaiah( 22 )

Alternately, we can write this link in terms of the Chapters, keeping in mind that we are looking at links between the chapter sequences of Psalms and Isaiah:

Psalms 46chainIsaiah 24

The Second Commandment establishes one of the great themes of Spoke 2:

Thou shalt not make graven images, for the Lord is a jealous God.

The Second Letter follows the order of the Godhead, with Beyt refering to God the Son (Ben) as discussed at length in the article exploring the Second Psalm and its relation to Exodus. All of this manifests in the appearance of the King of Glory in Psalm 24 and Book 46 (46 = 23) of the Bible Wheel:

Psalm 24 Book 46 (I Corinthians 2.6f)
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah. Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

This is not a KeyLink because the Lord of Glory also appears in James 2 (which does form a Link between Inner Cycles > James 2). We have therefore this strong thematic link between Psalm 24 and I Corinthians:

Spoke 2 Thematic Link: The King of Glory
PPsalms( 22 ) chain PBible( 23 )

Further ramifications of this theme manifest in the KeyLink between Jeremiah and I Corinthians explained in the Spoke 2 article called Glory in the Lord, and the many links between the Inner Wheel of Isaiah and the Bible Wheel, as seen for example in The Idols Stoop!.
