1 Why do the Goyim rage, and the Amim (peoples) imagine a vain thing?
2 The Malchei Eretz rise up in rebellion, and the rulers take counsel together against Hashem and against His Moshiach, saying,
3 Let us break their chains asunder, and cast away their fetters from us.
4 He that sitteth enthroned in Shomayim laughs; Adonoi hath them in derision.
5 Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and distress them in His hot displeasure.
6 I have set Malki (My King) upon Tziyon, My Har Kodesh.
7 I will declare the chok (decree): Hashem hath said unto me, Thou art Beni (My Son, i.e. Ben HaElohim Moshiach); HaYom (today) I have begotten thee.
8 Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the Goyim for thine nachalah, and the uttermost parts of ha’aretz for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt rule them with a shevet barzel; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10 Have seichel now therefore, O ye Melachim; be warned, ye Shoftei Aretz.
11 Serve Hashem with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Bar (Ben, Son, [see Hebrew Mishlei 31:2; Ben HaElohim Moshiach; see 2:2,7, above]), lest he be angry, and ye perish from the Derech, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Ashrei are all they that take refuge in him [Moshiach].
