Version: King James Edition - English
- 1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
- 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
- 3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
- 4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in derision.
- 5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
- 6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
- 7I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
- 8Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
- 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
- 10Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
- 11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
- 12Kiss 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.
