Psalms 2 (asv)
2:1Why do the nations rage,
And the peoples meditate a vain thing?
2:2The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against Jehovah, and against his anointed, saying,
2:3Let us break their bonds asunder,
And cast away their cords from us.
2:4He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh:
The Lord will have them in derision.
2:5Then will he speak unto them in his wrath,
And vex them in his sore displeasure:
2:6Yet I have set my king
2:7I will tell of the decree:
Jehovah said unto me, Thou art my son;
This day have I begotten thee.
2:8Ask of me, and I will give thee the nations for thine inheritance,
And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
2:10Now therefore be wise, O ye kings:
Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
And rejoice with trembling.
2:12Kiss the son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way,
For his wrath will soon be kindled.
Blessed are all they that take refuge in him.
