Psalm 2 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 Why do the nations plan rebellion? 1 Why do people make their useless plots? 2 Their kings revolt, their rulers plot together against the Lord and against the king he chose. 3 "Let us free ourselves from their rule," they say; "let us throw off their control." 4 From his throne in heaven the Lord laughs and mocks their feeble plans. 5 Then he warns them in anger and terrifies them with his fury. 6 "On Zion, a my sacred hill," he says, "I have installed my king." 7 "I will announce," says the king, "what the Lord has declared. 2 He said to me: "You are my son; today I have become your father. 8 Ask, and I will give you all the nations; the whole earth will be yours. 9 You will break them with an iron rod; 3 you will shatter them in pieces like a clay pot.' " 10 Now listen to this warning, you kings; learn this lesson, you rulers of the world: 11 Serve the Lord with fear; tremble 12 and bow down to him; b or else his anger will be quickly aroused, and you will suddenly die. Happy are all who go to him for protection.
