Psalms 2

1Why do the nations rage, and the peoples meditate vain things? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against Jehovah, and against his anointed, saying, 3Let us break their bonds apart, and cast away their cords from us. 4He who sits in the heavens will laugh. The Lord will have them in derision. 5Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and vex them in his great displeasure. 6Yet I have set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7I will tell of the decree. Jehovah said to me, Thou are my Son, this day I have begotten thee. 8Ask of me, and I will give thee the nations for thine inheritance, and the outermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9Thou shall break them with a rod of iron, thou shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. 10Now therefore be wise, O ye kings. Be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11Serve Jehovah with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, for his wrath will soon be kindled. Blessed are all those who take refuge in him.
