Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Why do the nations plan rebellion? Why do people make their useless plots? 1 Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
2 Their kings revolt, their rulers plot together against the Lord and against the king he chose. 2 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the LORD and against his Anointed One.
3 "Let us free ourselves from their rule," they say; "let us throw off their control." 3 "Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters."
4 From his throne in heaven the Lord laughs and mocks their feeble plans. 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then he warns them in anger and terrifies them with his fury. 5 Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying,
6 "On Zion, my sacred hill," he says, "I have installed my king." 6 "I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill."
