2:1 Why do the nations rage, And the peoples plot a vain thing?
2:2 The kings of the earth take a stand, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Yahweh, and against his anointed, saying,
2:4 He who sits in the heavens will laugh. The Lord will have them in derision.
2:5 Then he will speak to them in his anger, And terrify them in his wrath:
2:6 Yet I have set my king on my holy hill of Zion."
2:7 I will tell of the decree. Yahweh said to me, "You are my son. Today I have become your father.
2:8 Ask of me, and I will give the nations for your inheritance, The uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.
2:10 Now therefore be wise, you kings. Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
2:11 Serve Yahweh with fear, And rejoice with trembling.
2:12 Kiss the son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, For his wrath will soon be kindled. Blessed are all those who take refuge in him. Psalm 3 A Psalm by David, when he fled from Absalom, his son.
