Psalms 2 (asv)

Psalms 2 (asv)

2:1Why do the nations rage,

And the peoples meditate a vain thing?

2:2The kings of the earth set themselves,

And the rulers take counsel together,

Against Jehovah, and against his anointed, saying,

2:3Let us break their bonds asunder,

And cast away their cords from us.

2:4He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh:

The Lord will have them in derision.

2:5Then will he speak unto them in his wrath,

And vex them in his sore displeasure:

2:6Yet I have set my king

Upon my holy hill of Zion.

2:7I will tell of the decree:

Jehovah said unto me, Thou art my son;

This day have I begotten thee.

2:8Ask of me, and I will give thee the nations for thine inheritance,

And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

2:9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron;

Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

2:10Now therefore be wise, O ye kings:

Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

2:11Serve Jehovah with fear,

And rejoice with trembling.

2:12Kiss the son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way,

For his wrath will soon be kindled.

Blessed are all they that take refuge in him.
