25 By the Holy Spirit, through our father David your ·servant [or child], you said:
‘Why are the ·nations [Gentiles] ·so angry [furious; raging]? Why are the people ·making useless plans [plotting in vain]? 26 The kings of the earth ·prepare to fight [take their stand], and their ·leaders [rulers] ·make plans [or gather; assemble] together against the Lord and his ·Christ [Messiah; Anointed One; Ps. 2:1–2; C the psalm describes the unrest of subject nations at the coronation of Israel’s anointed king].’
27 ·These things really happened when [For truly; Indeed] Herod, Pontius Pilate, and ·some Jews [the people of Israel] and Gentiles all came together here in ·Jerusalem [L this city] against your holy ·servant [child] Jesus, the One you ·made to be the Christ [L anointed; Luke 4:18; C Christ in Greek and Messiah in Hebrew mean “anointed one”]. 28 These people made your plan happen because of your ·power [L hand] and your ·will [purpose]. [orL They did whatever your hand and your purpose predestined/determined beforehand to be done.]
