Psalms 21Why do the nations rage,
and the peoples plot a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth take a stand,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord, and against his Anointed, ▼
▼The word "Anointed" is the same as the word for "Messiah" or "Christ." Acts 4:26-26saying,
3"Let's break their bonds apart,
and cast 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 anger,
and terrify them in his wrath:
6"Yet I have set my king on my holy hill of Zion."
7I will tell of the decree.
The Lord said to me, "You are my son.
Today I have become your father. ▼
▼Acts 13:33; Hebrews 1:5
8Ask of me, and I will give the nations for your inheritance,
the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9You shall rule ▼
▼LXX (for Hebrew ra'ah). MT reads "break" (Hebrew ra'a'). Revelation 2:27 12:5 19:15them with a rod of iron.
You shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel." ▼
10Now therefore be wise, you kings.
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11Serve the Lord with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
12Kiss the son ▼
▼See also word used for "son" in Proverbs 31:2, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
for his wrath will soon be kindled.
Blessed are all those who take refuge in him.
