Why do the nations rage, And the peoples plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth take a stand, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Yahweh, and against his anointed, saying,
"Let us break their bonds apart, And cast away their cords from us."
He who sits in the heavens will laugh. The Lord will have them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his anger, And terrify them in his wrath:
"Yet I have set my king on my holy hill of Zion."
