And the people plot a 3vain thing?
And the brulers take counsel together,
3 “Let dus break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”
4 He who sits in the heavens eshall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
6 “Yet I have 5set My King
6On My holy hill of Zion.”
7 “I will declare the 7decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
f‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
And rejoice with trembling.
And you perish in the way,
When hHis wrath is kindled but a little.
iBlessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
