Psalm 2

NIRV 1 Why do the nations plan evil together? Why do they make useless plans? NIV 1 Why do the nations conspireand the peoples plot in vain? NIRV 2 The kings of the earth take their stand against the Lord. The rulers of the earth gather together against his anointed king. NIV 2 The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, NIRV 3 "Let us break free from their chains," they say. "Let us throw off their ropes." NIV 3 “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” NIRV 4 The One who sits on his throne in heaven laughs. The Lord makes fun of those rulers and their plans. NIV 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. NIRV 5 When he is angry, he warns them. When his anger blazes out, he terrifies them. NIV 5 He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, NIRV 6 He says to them, "I have placed my king on my holy mountain of Zion." NIV 6 “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” NIRV 7 I will announce what the LORD has promised. He said to me, "You are my son. Today I have become your father. NIV 7 I will proclaim the LORD’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. NIRV 8 Ask me, and I will give the nations to you. All nations on earth will belong to you. NIV 8 Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. NIRV 9 You will rule them with an iron rod. You will break them to pieces like clay pots." NIV 9 You will break them with a rod of iron ; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” NIRV 10 Kings, be wise! Rulers of the earth, be warned! NIV 10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. NIRV 11 Serve the LORD and have respect for him. Serve him with joy and trembling. NIV 11 Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. NIRV 12 Obey the son completely, or he will be angry. Your way of life will lead to your death. His anger can blaze out at any moment. Blessed are all those who go to him for safety. NIV 12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
