This article describes theological and mythological scholarly viewpoints concerning the motif of divine sonship in Genesis 6:1-9 and Psalm 2:1-12. The author, admitting the complex and problematic nature of the inquiry, discusses some of the popular interpretations of both texts and attempts to discern the pros and cons of each reading. Ultimately he points out certain similarities and differences between the two texts. He contends that the motif of divine sonship in Genesis 6 differs in a certain sense from that of Psalm 2. One of the reasons for this difference is that the eschatological expectation of the reign of the Son of God seems to lie behind the text of Psalm 2, whereas, in Genesis 6, it does not.
