Why do the nations conspirea and the peoples plot1 in vain?
The kings2 of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed,3 saying,
"Let us break their chains4 and throw off their shackles."54
The One enthroned6 in heaven laughs;7 the Lord scoffs at them.
He rebukes them in his anger8 and terrifies them in his wrath,9 saying,
"I have installed my king10 on Zion,11 my holy mountain.12"
I will proclaim the LORD's decree: He said to me, "You are my son;13 today I have become your father.14
