God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

13:33 second psalm. The quote is from Psalm 2:7, and indicates that the prophecy applies specifically to Christ’s resurrection, rather than His birth. He had been “declared to be the Son of God…by the resurrection from the dead” (Romans 1:4). It is also significant that Paul called it “the second psalm,” just as we do today, thus indicating that the chapter divisions in the book of Psalms are not the product of medieval scholars, but were there from the beginning.

13:34 on this wise. See Isaiah 55:3.

13:35 another psalm. Psalm 16:10.
