1: Why have nations tumultuously assembled? And do peoples meditate vanity? 2: Station themselves do kings of the earth, And princes have been united together, Against Jehovah, and against His Messiah: 3: 'Let us draw off Their cords, And cast from us Their thick bands.' 4: He who is sitting in the heavens doth laugh, The Lord doth mock at them. 5: Then doth He speak unto them in His anger, And in His wrath He doth trouble them: 6: 'And I -- I have anointed My King, Upon Zion -- My holy hill.' 7: I declare concerning a statute: Jehovah said unto me, 'My Son Thou [art], I to-day have brought thee forth. 8: Ask of Me and I give nations -- thy inheritance, And thy possession -- the ends of earth. 9: Thou dost rule them with a sceptre of iron, As a vessel of a potter Thou dost crush them.' 10: And now, O kings, act wisely, Be instructed, O judges of earth, 11: Serve ye Jehovah with fear, And rejoice with trembling. 12: Kiss the Chosen One, lest He be angry, And ye lose the way, When His anger burneth but a little, O the happiness of all trusting in Him!
