1Why are 1the anations in an uproar And the peoples2devising a vainthing?
The 3kings of the earthtake their stand And the rulerstakecounseltogether4Against the LORD and against His b5Anointed, saying,
"Let us 6tear their fettersapart And castaway their cords from us!"
He who csits in the heavens7laughs, The Lord8scoffs at them.
5Then He will speak to them in His 9anger And 10terrify them in His fury, saying,
"But as for Me, I have dinstalled11My King Upon Zion, 12My holymountain."
"I will surelytell of the edecree of the LORD: He said to Me, 'You are 13My Son, Today I have begotten You.
8'Ask of Me, and 14I will surely give15the fnations as Your inheritance, And the very 16ends of the earth as Your possession.
'You shall g17break them with a hrod of iron, You shall 18shatter them like iearthenware .' "
10Now therefore, O kings, 19showdiscernment; Takewarning, O jjudges of the earth.
11kWorship the LORD with l20reverence And rejoice with 21trembling.
12mDohomage to 22the Son, that He not becomeangry, and you perish in the way, For 23His wrath may nsoon be kindled. How blessed are all who 24takerefuge in Him!
