2:1 Why do the nations rage, And the peoples plot a vain thing?

2:2 The kings of the earth take a stand, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Yahweh, and against his anointed,{The word "anointed" is the same as the word for "Messiah" or "Christ"} saying,

2:3 "Let's break their bonds apart, And cast away their cords from us."

2:4 He who sits in the heavens will laugh. The Lord will have them in derision.

2:5 Then he will speak to them in his anger, And terrify them in his wrath:

2:6 "Yet I have set my king on my holy hill of Zion."

2:7 I will tell of the decree. Yahweh said to me, "You are my son. Today I have become your father.

2:8 Ask of me, and I will give the nations for your inheritance, The uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.

2:9 You shall break them with a rod of iron. You shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."

2:10 Now therefore be wise, you kings. Be instructed, you judges of the earth.

2:11 Serve Yahweh with fear, And rejoice with trembling.

2:12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, For his wrath will soon be kindled. Blessed are all those who take refuge in him.
