I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, (A)“You are my Son;
    today I have begotten you.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
    and (B)the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall (C)break[a] them with (D)a rod of iron
    and dash them in pieces like (E)a potter's vessel.”

10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
    be warned, O rulers of the earth.
11 (F)Serve the Lord with (G)fear,
    and (H)rejoice with (I)trembling.
12 (J)Kiss (K)the Son,
    lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
    for his (L)wrath is quickly kindled.
(M)Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
