Psalms 2:1-12.v.
 
2:1 Why are the nations in tumultuous agitation, and [why] do the peoples meditate a vain thing?

2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the princes plot together, against Jehovah and against his anointed:

2:3 Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their cords from us!

2:4 He that dwelleth in the heavens shall laugh, the Lord shall have them in derision.

2:5 Then will he speak to them in his anger, and in his fierce displeasure will he terrify them:

2:6 And *I* have anointed my king upon Zion, the hill of my holiness.

2:7 I will declare the decree: Jehovah hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; *I* this day have begotten thee.

2:8 Ask of me, and I will give thee nations for an inheritance, and for thy possession the ends of the earth:

2:9 Thou shalt break them with a sceptre of iron, as a potter's vessel thou shalt dash them in pieces.

2:10 And now, O kings, be ye wise, be admonished, ye judges of the earth.

2:11 Serve Jehovah with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, though his anger burn but a little. Blessed are all who have their trust in him.
