Psalm 2

Why are the nations in tumult :
 and why do the peoples cherish a vain dream?
The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers conspire together :
 against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
‘Let us break their bonds asunder :
 let us throw off their chains from us.’
He that dwells in heaven shall laugh them to scorn :
 the Lord will hold them in derision.
Then will he speak to them in his wrath,
   and terrify them in his fury :
 ‘I, the Lord, have set up my king on Zion my holy hill.’
I will announce the Lord’s decree,
   that which he has spoken :
 ‘You are my son, this day have I begotten you.
‘Ask of me,
   and I will give you the nations for your inheritance :
 the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
‘You shall break them with a rod of iron :
 and shatter them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.’
Now therefore be wise, O kings :
 be advised, you that are judges of the earth.
