1 Why do the nations rage, and the peoples meditate on a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers plot together, against Jehovah and against His anointed, saying, 3 Let us break their bands in two and cast away their cords from us.
4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; Jehovah shall mock at them. 5 Then He shall speak to them in His anger, and trouble them in His wrath. 6 Yea, I have set My king on My holy hill, on Zion.
7 I will declare the decree of Jehovah. He has said to Me, You are My Son; today I have begotten You. 8 Ask of Me, and I shall give the nations for Your inheritance; and the uttermost parts of the earth for Your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron; You shall dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
