Psalm 2
Why do the nations rage *
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth stand up
and the rulers take counsel together *
against the LORD and against his Anointed.
“Let us break their chains,” they say, *
“and cast away their cords from us.”
The One enthroned in the heavens laughs; *
the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his wrath, *
and terrify them in his fury:
“I myself have set my King *
on Zion, my holy hill.”
I will proclaim the decree: *
the LORD said to me, “You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
Ask of me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance, *
and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall rule them with a rod of iron; *
you shall shatter them like pottery.”
Therefore, O kings, be wise; *
be warned, you rulers of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear, *
and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry *
and you perish in the way,
For his wrath is quickly kindled. *
Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
