Psalm 2


The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.

1 Why are athe 1nations in an uproar

And the peoples bdevising a vain thing?

2 The akings of the earth take their stand

And the rulers take counsel together

bAgainst the Lord and against His 1cAnointed, saying,

3 “Let us atear their fetters apart

And cast away their cords from us!”

4 He who 1sits in the heavens alaughs,

The Lord bscoffs at them.

5 Then He will speak to them in His aanger

And bterrify them in His fury, saying,

6 “But as for Me, I have 1installed aMy King

Upon Zion, bMy holy mountain.”

7 “I will surely tell of the 1decree of the Lord:

He said to Me, ‘You are aMy Son,

Today I have begotten You.

8 ‘Ask of Me, and aI will surely give bthe 1nations as Your inheritance,

And the very cends of the earth as Your possession.

9 ‘You shall 1abreak them with a 2rod of iron,

You shall bshatter them like 3earthenware.’ ”

10 Now therefore, O kings, ashow discernment;

Take warning, O 1judges of the earth.

11 1Worship the Lord with 2areverence

And rejoice with btrembling.

12 1Do homage to athe Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,

For bHis wrath may 2soon be kindled.

How blessed are all who ctake refuge in Him!
