Psalm 2

Psalm 2

*aWhy do bthe heathen ||rage,

And the people imagine a vain thing?

The ckings of the earth set themselves,

And the crulers take counsel together,

Against the Lord, and against his danointed, esaying,

Let us fbreak their bands asunder,

And cast away their cords from us.

He that gsitteth in the heavens shall hlaugh:

The Lord shall hihave them in derision.

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath,

And ||vex them in his sore displeasure.

Yet have I set my king

Upon my holy hill of Zion.

I will declare ||the decree:

The Lord hath said unto me, kThou art my Son;

This day have I begotten thee.

Ask of me,

And I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance,

And lthe uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Thou shalt mbreak them nwith a rod of iron;

Thou shalt dash them in pieces olike a potter’s vessel.

10  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings:

Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11  Serve the Lord with fear,

And rejoice with ptrembling.

12  qKiss the rSon, lest he be angry,

And ye perish from the way,

sWhen his wrath is kindled but a little.

tBlessed are uall they that put their trust in him.
