2 Kings on earth rise up and princes plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one:[a](A)
3 “Let us break their shackles and cast off their chains from us!”(A)
4 The one enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord derides them,(A)
5 Then he speaks to them in his anger, in his wrath he terrifies them:
8 Ask it of me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, and, as your possession, the ends of the earth.
