Psalm 2

God’s Promise to His Anointed

1

Why do the nations conspire,

and the peoples plot in vain?

2

The kings of the earth set themselves,

and the rulers take counsel together,

against the Lord and his anointed, saying,

3

“Let us burst their bonds asunder,

and cast their cords from us.”

 

4

He who sits in the heavens laughs;

the Lord has them in derision.

5

Then he will speak to them in his wrath,

and terrify them in his fury, saying,

6

“I have set my king on Zion, my holy hill.”

 

7

I will tell of the decree of the Lord:

He 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,

with trembling 12kiss his feet,

or he will be angry, and you will perish in the way;

for his wrath is quickly kindled.

 

Happy are all who take refuge in him.
