Psalm 2 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Psalm 2

Coronation of the Son

Why do the nations rebel[a]
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand,
and the rulers conspire together
against the Lord and His Anointed One:[b]
“Let us tear off their chains
and free ourselves from their restraints.”[c]

The One enthroned[d] in heaven laughs;
the Lord ridicules them.
Then He speaks to them in His anger
and terrifies them in His wrath:
“I have consecrated My King[e]
on Zion, My holy mountain.”

I will declare the Lord’s decree:
He said to Me, “You are My Son;[f]
today I have become Your[g] Father.
Ask of Me,
and I will make the nations Your[h] inheritance
and the ends of the earth Your[i] possession.
You will break[j] them with a rod of iron;
You[k] will shatter them like pottery.”[l]

10 So now, kings, be wise;
receive instruction, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with reverential awe
and rejoice with trembling.
12 Pay homage to[m] the Son or He[n] will be angry
and you will perish in your rebellion,[o]
for His[p] anger may ignite at any moment.
All those who take refuge in Him[q] are happy.

ﺍﻟﻤﺰﺍﻣﻴﺮ 2 Arabic Bible: Easy-to-Read Version (ERV-AR)

لِماذا تَتآمَرُ الأُمَمُ،
وَلِماذا تُدَبِّرُ الشُّعُوبُ المَكائِدَ عَبَثاً؟
أعَدَّ مُلُوكُ الأرْضِ أنفُسَهُمْ لِلمَعرَكَةِ.
وَاجتَمَعَ الحُكّامُ مَعاً عَلَى اللهِ وَعَلَى مَسِيحِهِ. [a]
يَقُولُونَ:
«لِنَتَخَلَّصْ مِنْ قُيُودِهِمْ،
وَلْنُلْقِ بِها بَعِيداً عَنّا!»

الجالِسُ فِي السَّماءِ يَضحَكُ،
اللهُ يَهْزَأُ بِهِمْ.
ثُمَّ يَتَحَدَّثُ إلَيْهِمْ فِي غَضَبِهِ،
وَبِسَخَطِهِ يُفزِعُهُمْ وَيَقُولُ:
«قَدْ نَصَّبْتُ مَلِكِي فِي صِهْيَوْنَ – جَبَلِيَ المُقَدَّسِ.»

دَعُونِي أُخبِرُكُمْ بِما
قَضَى بِهِ اللهُ.
قالَ لِي: «أنتَ ابْنِي،
وَأنا اليَوْمَ وَلَدْتُكَ!
اطلُبْ، وَسَأجعَلُ جَمِيعَ الشُّعُوبِ مِيراثاً لَكَ،
وَأطرافَ الأرْضِ مُلْكاً لَكَ.
سَتَحكُمُها بِصَولَجانٍ مِنْ حَدِيدٍ،
وَتُكَسِّرُها كَآنِيَةِ الفَخّارِ.»

10 وَالآنَ، تَعَقَّلُوا أيُّها المُلُوكُ.
وَخُذُوا بِنَصِيحَتِي يا قادَةَ الأرْضِ.
11 اخدِمُوا اللهَ بِخَوْفٍ وَتَوقِيرٍ.
ارتَعِدُوا أمامَهُ ارتِعاداً.
12 اخضَعُوا لِلابْنِ لِئَلّا يَغضَبَ، فَتَهلِكُوا!
لِأنَّ غَضَبَهُ يُوشِكُ أنْ يَنفَجِرَ.
هَنِيئاً لِلمُتَّكِلِينَ عَلَيهِ.
