2 Why are the [a]nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His [b]Anointed, saying, 3 “Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!”
4 He who [c]sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. 5 Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury, saying, 6 “But as for Me, I have [d]installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”
7 “I will surely tell of the [e]decree of the Lord: He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. 8 ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the [f]nations as Your inheritance, And the veryends of the earth as Your possession. 9 ‘You shall [g]break them with a [h]rod of iron, You shall shatter them like [i]earthenware.’”
10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment; Take warning, O [j]judges of the earth. 11 [k]Worship the Lord with [l]reverence And rejoice with trembling. 12 [m]Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, For His wrath may [n]soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!
