The Passion Translation
11 Serve and worship the awe-inspiring God.
Recognize his greatness and bow before him,
trembling with reverence in his presence.[a]
12 Fall facedown before him and kiss the Son[b]
before his anger is roused against you.
Remember that his wrath can be quickly kindled!
But many blessings are waiting for all
who turn aside to hide themselves in him!
- Psalm 2:11 Or “Rejoice with trembling.” The Hebrew word for “rejoice” means “to spin around with excited emotions” or “to twirl.”
- Psalm 2:12 Or “be ruled by the Son.” The Hebrew word for “kiss” is nashaq and can also mean “to be ruled by” or “be in subjection to” (the Son). Yet another possible translation of this difficult verse is “be armed with purity.”
