( * The main focus of the Psalmist here is the rage that the world, mainly the heathen ( the unbelievers, the ungodly ) have in their vain imaginations, their insanity, of their contempt and unjustified hatred towards the Christians. * )
" You are aware that Christianity didn't even exist at the time the Psalm was written, right? Heathen meant anyone not of the faith of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which we know today as Judaism. "
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
And John goes on and tells us that " THE WORD " became flesh and dwelt among us, that is Jesus Christ Yeshua the Messiah ....
Just who do you think " THE WORD " is ? ... no, wait, are you saying that Christian's have to leave out the total history of the Old Testament because it does not apply to them ? ....
The Old Testament is full of many types, or metaphorical pictures of what is to come, not just a historical record of God's dealings with the Nation of Israel.
The picture, the metaphorical type of the spotless lamb that is for sacrifice for sins in the Old Testament is a forshadow of Jesus Christ Yeshua the Messiah, no, wait, you would tell us it was only for the Jewish sacrifice for sins in the Old Testament,
silly me, for even thinking it was a " foreshadow " of what is to come , that was a " type " or foreshadow of Jesus Christ.

Yes, the Jews have no idea about their own history and religion, it was all a forshadowing for Christianity.
