Psalm 2
Lamsa Bible Par ▾ 
1WHY do the Gentiles rage and the peoples imagine vain things?

2The kings of the earth and the rulers have conspired and have taken counsel together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying,

3Let us break their bands asunder, and let us cast away their yoke from us.

4He that dwells in heaven shall laugh, and the LORD shall mock at them.

5Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and terrify them in his wrath and say,

6I have appointed my king over Zion, my holy mountain,

7To declare my promise; the LORD has said to me, You are my Son; this day have I begotten you.

8Ask of me, and I shall give you the heathen for your inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for your dominion.

9You shall shepherd them with a rod of iron; you shall break them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10Be wise now, therefore, O kings; be instructed, O judges of the earth.

11Serve the LORD with reverence, and uphold him with trembling.

12Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from his way while his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
