"Let us break their chains,1" they say, "and throw off their fetters."24
The One enthroned3 in heaven laughs;4 the Lord scoffs at them.
Then he rebukes them in his anger5 and terrifies them in his wrath,6 saying,
"I have installed my Kinga7 on Zion,8 my holy hill.9"
I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my Sonb;10 today I have become your Father.c118
Ask of me, and I will make the nations12 your inheritance,13 the ends of the earth14 your possession.
You will rule them with an iron scepterd;15 you will dash them to pieces16 like pottery.17"
Therefore, you kings, be wise;18 be warned, you rulers19 of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear20 and rejoice21 with trembling.2212
Kiss the Son,23 lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath24 can flare up in a moment. Blessed25 are all who take refuge26 in him.
