Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying
“Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us.”
Psalm 2:1-3

Fulfillment in the New Testament

Who through the mouth of our father David, your servant, said by the Holy Spirit,
“‘Why did the Gentiles rage,
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers were gathered together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed’
for truly in this city there were gathered together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel to do whatever your hand and your plan had predestined to take place.

For to which of the angels did God ever say,
“You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”?
Or again,
“I will be to him a father,
and he shall be to me a son”?
Hebrews 1:5

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David. Luke 1:32

And behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17

And we bring you the good news that what God promised to the fathers
this he has fulfilled to us their children by raising Jesus, as also it is written in the second Psalm,

And was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 1:4

Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,

Psalm 8:2

Fulfillment in the New Testament

But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant
and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read,
“‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies
you have prepared praise?”
Matthew 21:15-16

prophecy

Prophecy in the Old Testament

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet.
Psalm 8:5-6

Fulfillment in the New Testament

For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking.
It has been testified somewhere,
“What is man, that you are mindful of him,
or the son of man, that you care for him?
You made him for a little while lower than the angels;
you have crowned him with glory and honor
putting everything in subjection under his feet.”
Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
Hebrews 2:5-9

For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. 1 Corinthians 15:25-27

See also:

And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church. Ephesians 1:22

when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Isaiah 53:10

Fulfillment in the New Testament

“Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants on his throne he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. Acts 2:29-31

Therefore he says also in another psalm,
‘You will not let your Holy One see corruption.’ For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid with his fathers and saw corruption but he whom God raised up did not see corruption.
Acts 13:35-37

We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. Romans 6:9

prophecy

Prophecy in the Old Testament

But I am a worm and not a man,

let him rescue him, for he delights in him!”
Psalm 22:6-8

For zeal for your house has consumed me,
and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fallen on me.
Psalm 69:9

I am an object of scorn to my accusers;
when they see me, they wag their heads.
Psalm 109:25

Fulfillment in the New Testament

And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way. Matthew 27:39-44

For Christ did not please himself, but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached you fell on me.” Romans 15:3

prophecy

Prophecy in the Old Testament

They gave me poison for food,
and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.

My strength is dried up like a potsherd,
and my tongue sticks to my jaws;
you lay me in the dust of death.
Psalm 22:15

Fulfillment in the New Testament

prophecy

Prophecy in the Old Testament

They divide my garments among them,
and for my clothing they cast lots.
Psalm 22:18

Fulfillment in the New Testament

When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and divided them into four parts, one part for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom
so they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.”
This was to fulfill the Scripture which says,
“They divided my garments among them,
and for my clothing they cast lots.”
So the soldiers did these things.
John 19:23-24

fulfillment

Prophecy in the Old Testament

Into your hand I commit my spirit;
you have redeemed me, O LORD, faithful God.
Psalm 31:5

Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many,
and he shall divide the spoil with the strong,
because he poured out his soul to death
and was numbered with the transgressors;
yet he bore the sin of many,
and makes intercession for the transgressors.
Isaiah 53:12

And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. Daniel 9:26

not one of them is broken.
Psalm 34:20

See also:

They shall leave none of it until the morning, nor break any of its bones; according to all the statute for the Passover they shall keep it. Numbers 9:12

Fulfillment in the New Testament

Since it was the day of Preparation, and so that the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away. So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who had been crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. He who saw it has borne witness—his testimony is true, and he knows that he is telling the truth—that you also may believe. For these things took place that the Scripture might be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken.” John 19:31-36

fulfillment

Prophecy in the Old Testament

Let not those rejoice over me
who are wrongfully my foes,
and let not those wink the eye

fulfillment

Prophecy in the Old Testament

Those who seek my life lay their snares;
those who seek my hurt speak of ruin
and meditate treachery all day long.
But I am like a deaf man; I do not hear,
like a mute man who does not open his mouth.
I have become like a man who does not hear,
and in whose mouth are no rebukes.
Psalm 38:12-14

Fulfillment in the New Testament

But when he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he gave no answer. Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not hear how many things they testify against you?” But he gave him no answer, not even to a single charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed. Matthew 27:12-14

fulfillment

Prophecy in the Old Testament

Those who render me evil for good
accuse me because I follow after good.

prophecy

Prophecy in the Old Testament

In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted,
but you have given me an open ear.
Burnt offering and sin offering
you have not required.
Then I said, “Behold, I have come;
in the scroll of the book it is written of me
I delight to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.”
Psalm 40:6-8

Fulfillment in the New Testament

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work.” John 4:34

Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said,
“Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired,
but a body have you prepared for me
in burnt offerings and sin offerings
you have taken no pleasure.
Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come to do your will, O God,
as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.’” When he said above, “You have neither desired nor taken pleasure in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings” (these are offered according to the law) then he added, “Behold, I have come to do your will.” He does away with the first in order to establish the second. And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrews 10:5-10

fulfillment

Prophecy in the Old Testament

Even my close friend in whom I trusted,
who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
Psalm 41:9

For it is not an enemy who taunts me—
then I could bear it;
it is not an adversary who deals insolently with me—
then I could hide from him.

my companion, my familiar friend.
We used to take sweet counsel together;
within God’s house we walked in the throng.

Then when Judas, his betrayer, saw that Jesus was condemned, he changed his mind and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.” And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself. Matthew 27:3-5

“Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who became a guide to those who arrested Jesus. For he was numbered among us and was allotted his share in this ministry.” (Now this man acquired a field with the reward of his wickedness, and falling headlong he burst open in the middle and all his bowels gushed out. And it became known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the field was called in their own language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.) Acts 1:16-19

Therefore it says,
“When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,

“‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
Make the heart of this people dull,

and blind their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”
Isaiah 6:9-10

All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable.
This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet:
“I will open my mouth in parables;
I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.”
Matthew 13:34-35

This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:
‘You will indeed hear but never understand,
and you will indeed see but never perceive.”
For this people’s heart has grown dull,
and with their ears they can barely hear,
and their eyes they have closed,
lest they should see with their eyes
and hear with their ears
and understand with their heart
and turn, and I would heal them.’
Matthew 13:13-15

And he said to them, “To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside everything is in parables
so that
“‘they may indeed see but not perceive,
and may indeed hear but not understand,
lest they should turn and be forgiven.’”
Mark 4:11-12
