Psalm 2:1–11

(ESV)
1
Why do the nations rage
 

 

and the peoples plot in vain?
 
2
The kings of the earth set themselves,
 

 

and the rulers take counsel together,
 

 

against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,
 
3
“Let us burst their bonds apart
 

 

and cast away their cords from us.”
 
 
 
4
He who sits in the heavens laughs;
 

 

the Lord holds them in derision.
 
5
Then he will speak to them in his wrath,
 

 

and terrify them in his fury, saying,
 
6
“As for me, I have set my King
 

 

on Zion, my holy hill.”
 
 
 
7
I will tell of the decree:
 
The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;
 

 

today I have begotten you.
 
8
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
 

 

and the ends of the earth your possession.
 
9
You shall break them with a rod of iron
 

 

and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
 
 
 
10
Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
 

 

be warned, O rulers of the earth.
 
11
Serve the LORD with fear,
 

 

and rejoice with trembling.
