Why are the nations so angry? Why are the people making useless plans?
The kings of the earth prepare to fight, and their leaders make plans together against the Lord and his appointed one.
They say, "Let's break the chains that hold us back and throw off the ropes that tie us down."
But the one who sits in heaven laughs; the Lord makes fun of them.
Then the Lord warns them and frightens them with his anger.
He says, "I have appointed my own king to rule in Jerusalem on my holy mountain, Zion."
