The Book of Psalms
Why do the nations rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and terrify them in his sore displeasure, saying,
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I will declare the decree of the LORD, who hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the nations for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be warned, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, for his wrath is kindled quickly. Blessed are all they that take refuge in him.
