Why are the nations so violently moved, and why are the thoughts of the people so foolish?
The kings of the earth have taken their place, and the rulers are fixed in their purpose, against the Lord, and against the king of his selection, saying,
Let their chains be broken, and their cords taken from off us.
Then he whose seat is in the heavens will be laughing: the Lord will make sport of them.
Then will his angry words come to their ears, and by his wrath they will be troubled:
But I have put my king on my holy hill of Zion.
