Why do the nations gather together? Why do their people devise useless plots?
Kings take their stands. Rulers make plans together against the LORD and against his Messiah by saying,
"Let's break apart their chains and shake off their ropes."
The one enthroned in heaven laughs. The Lord makes fun of them.
Then he speaks to them in his anger. In his burning anger he terrifies them by saying,
"I have installed my own king on Zion, my holy mountain."
