Psalms Chapter 2 (Index)

001  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

002  The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

003  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

004  He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

005  Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

006  Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

007  I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

008  Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

009  Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

010  Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

011  Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

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