Psalm 2
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Why have nations assembled tumultuously? And peoples meditate vanity?

2Kings of the earth station themselves, and princes have been united together, against YHWH, and against His Messiah:

3“Let us draw off Their cords, "" And cast Their thick bands from us.”

4He who is sitting in the heavens laughs, "" The Lord mocks at them.

5Then He speaks to them in His anger, and in His wrath He troubles them:

6“And I have anointed My King, "" On Zion—My holy hill.”

7I declare concerning a statute: YHWH said to me, “You [are] My Son, today I have brought You forth.

8Ask of Me and I give nations [as] Your inheritance, "" And the ends of the earth [for] Your possession.

9You rule them with a scepter of iron, "" You crush them as a vessel of a potter.”

10And now, O kings, act wisely, "" Be instructed, O judges of earth,

11Serve YHWH with fear, "" And rejoice with trembling.

12Kiss the Chosen One [[or Son]], lest He is angry, "" And you perish [from] the way, "" When His anger burns but a little, "" O the blessedness of all trusting in Him!
