Psalms 2

1Why did the heathen rage, and the nations imagine vain things? 2The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers gathered themselves together, against the Lord, and against His Christ; 3saying, Let us break through Their bonds, and cast away Their yoke from us. 4He that dwells in the heavens shall laugh them to scorn, and the Lord shall mock them. 5Then shall He speak to them in His anger, and trouble them in His fury. 6But I have been made King by Him on Zion His holy mountain, 7declaring the ordinance of the Lord: the Lord has said to Me, You are My Son, today I have begotten You. 8Ask of Me, and I shall give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession. 9You shall rule them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces as a potter's vessel. 10Now therefore understand, you kings: be instructed, all you that judge the earth. 11Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice in Him with trembling. 12Accept correction, lest at any time the Lord be angry, and you should perish from the righteous way. Whenever His wrath shall be suddenly kindled, blessed are all they that trust in Him.
