The Bible Writes: The Kings Set Themselves Up

The Reign of the Lord's Anointed

rWhy do sthe nations rage1
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and against his tAnointed, saying,
“Let us uburst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us.”

He who vsits in the heavens wlaughs;
the Lord holds them in derision.
Then he will speak to them in his xwrath,
and terrify them in his fury, saying,
“As for me, I have yset my King
on zZion, my aholy hill.”

I will tell of the decree:
The Lord said to me, b“You are my Son;
today I have begotten you.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and cthe ends of the earth your possession.
You shall dbreak2 them with ea rod of iron
and dash them in pieces like fa potter's vessel.”

10  Now therefore, O kings, be wise;
be warned, O rulers of the earth.
11  gServe the Lord with hfear,
and irejoice with htrembling.
12  jKiss kthe Son,
lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,
for his lwrath is quickly kindled.
mBlessed are all who take refuge in him.
