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!
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update
The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
