and the peoples plot in vain?
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and his anointed, saying,
and cast their cords from us.”
the Lord has them in derision.
and terrify them in his fury, saying,
on Zion, my holy hill.”
He said to me, “You are my son,
today I have begotten you.
and the ends of the earth your possession.
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
be warned, O rulers of the earth.
with trembling 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.
Many are rising against me;
there is no help for him in God. [Selah]
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
and he answers me from his holy hill. [Selah]
I wake again, for the Lord sustains me.
who have set themselves against me round about.
Deliver me, O my God!
For thou dost smite all my enemies on the cheek,
thou dost break the teeth of the wicked.
thy blessing be upon thy people! [Selah]
