The Messiah’s Reign

1 Why are nations in tumult, and countries plottinga in vain?b 2 [The] kings of [the] earth establish themselves, and the rulers conspirec together against Yahweh and his anointed: 3 "Let us tear off their bonds, and cast their cords from us!" 4 [He who] sits [enthroned] in the heavens laughs. The Lord derides them. 5 Then he speaks to them in his wrath, and in his fury he terrifies them: 6 "But as for me, I have set my king on Zion, my holy mountain." 7 I will tell the decree; Yahweh said to me: "You are my son; today I have begotten you. 8 Ask from me and I will make [the] nations your heritage, and your possession [the] ends of [the] earth. 9 You will break them with an iron rod. Like a potter's vessel you will shatter them." 10 So then, O kings, be wise. Be warned, O rulers of [the] earth. 11 Serve Yahweh with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son lest he be angry and you perish [on the] way, for his anger burns quickly. Blessed are all [who] take refuge in him.
