“I will surely tell of the [a]decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are (A)My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
‘Ask of Me, and (B)I will surely give (C)the [b]nations as Your inheritance,
And the very (D)ends of the earth as Your possession.
‘You shall [c](E)break them with a [d]rod of iron,
You shall (F)shatter them like [e]earthenware.’”

10 Now therefore, O kings, (G)show discernment;
Take warning, O [f]judges of the earth.
