Psalms 21 Why do the nations rage,
and the peoples plot a vain thing?
2 The 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."
4 He who sits in the heavens will laugh.
The Lord will have them in derision.
5 Then 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."
7 I 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
8 Ask of me, and I will give the nations for your inheritance,
the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
9 You 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." ▼
▼ Revelation 2:27
10 Now therefore be wise, you kings.
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss 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.
