1 Why do the tribes and nations rage
And form a vain design?
Kings of the earth do set themselves
and princes plotting join,
Against Jehovah and his Christ,
with one consent, and say,
3 "Let us asunder break their bands
and cast their cords away!"
4 But He ho sits in heaven will laugh,
The Lord will them deride;
5 In anger then to them He'll speak,
in wrath to vex their pride.
6 "See I have set my king upon
Zion my holy hill,
7 And the immutable decree
Proclaim abroad I will."
8 The Lord said, "Thou my Son, this day.
have I begotten thee!
Ask, and the nations I will give
thine heritage to be.
9 And of the earth thou shalt possess
The utmost coasts abroad;
Thy foes shalt break as potters ware,
and crush with iron rod."
10 And now ye kings, be wise; be learned
ye who earth's judges are;
11 Serve ye the LORD with reverence,
rejoice with trembling fear.
12 Kiss ye the Son, lest by his wrath
ye perish in our way:
When once his wrath a little burns,
blessed all that on him stay.
