“I will declare the [a]decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
(A)‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
(B)You shall [b]break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”

10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
12 [c]Kiss the Son, lest [d]He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When (C)His wrath is kindled but a little.
(D)Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
