2:1 Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain?
2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and his anointed, saying,
2:3 "Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us."
2:4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; the LORD has them in derision.
2:5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying,
2:6 "I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill."
2:7 I will tell of the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my son, today I have begotten you.
2:8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.
2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron, and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."
2:10 Now therefore, O kings, be wise; be warned, O rulers of the earth.
2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, with trembling
2:12 kiss his feet, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way; for his wrath is quickly kindled. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
