Psalm 2:1-12

2  Why have nations forgathered and peoples made empty propositions? 2  Kings of earth took their stand and potentates concerted a program against Jehovah and against his Anointed, 3  “Let us snap their tether and tear off their ropes.” 4  He who sits in heaven will laugh; the Lord will deride them. 5  Then he will speak to them in his anger and throw them into consternation by his heat, 6  “But I, I have invested my king on my sacred mountain Sion.” 7  I will tell the story of Jehovah’s ordinance: He said to me “You are my son, I myself have today given you birth. 8  Ask me and I will make nations your estate and the ends of earth your holding. 9*  You shall break them with iron truncheon, smash them like crockery.” 10  And now, kings, be canny; take your lesson to heart, judges of earth; 11*  Worship Jehovah in fear and kiss his feet with quaking, 12*  For fear he should be angry and you perish right away, because his anger takes fire easily. Happy are all that take refuge in him.
