The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the (A)rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His (B)Anointed,[a] saying,
“Let (C)us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens (D)shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have [b]set My King
[c]On My holy hill of Zion.”
