“I will announce the [a]decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are (A)My Son,
Today I have fathered You.
Ask it of Me, and (B)I will certainly give (C)the [b]nations as Your inheritance,
And the (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 then, you kings, (G)use insight;
Let yourselves be instructed, you [f]judges of the earth.
