Psalm 2

Psalm 2



1: Why do the nations conspire and the people plot in vain?
2: The Kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord. and against his Anointed One.
3: "Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters."
4: The one enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them.
5: Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath saying,  
6: "I have installed my King in Zion, my holy hill."
7: I will proclaim the decree of the Lord: He said to me" You are my Son today I have become your Father
8: Ask of me and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
9: You will rule them with an iron scepter you will dash to them to pieces like pottery"
10: Therefore, you kings will be wise; be warned, you are the rulers of the earth.
11: Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.
12: Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way for his wrath can flare up in a moment.  Blessed area all who take refuge in him.
