Psalm 2 Coronation of the Son 2 1Why do the nations rebel[G] and the peoples plot in vain? 2The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers conspire together against the Lord and His Anointed One:[H] 3“Let us tear off their chains and free ourselves from their restraints.”[I] 4The One enthroned[J] in heaven laughs; the Lord ridicules them. 5Then He speaks to them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath: 6“I have consecrated My King[K] on Zion, My holy mountain.” 7I will declare the Lord’s decree: He said to Me, “You are My Son;[L] today I have become Your[M] Father. 8Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your[N] inheritance and the ends of the earth Your[O] possession. 9You will break[P] them with a rod of iron; You[Q] will shatter them like pottery.”[R] 10So now, kings, be wise; receive instruction, you judges of the earth. 11Serve the Lord with reverential awe and rejoice with trembling. 12Pay homage to[S] the Son or He[T] will be angry and you will perish in your rebellion,[U] for His[V] anger may ignite at any moment. All those who take refuge in Him[W] are happy.
