¶ Why do the heathen grudge? Why do the people imagine vain things? The kings of the earth stond up, and the rulers are come together, against the LORD, and against his anointed. Let us break their bonds asunder, and cast away their yoke from us. Nevertheless he that dwelleth in heaven, shall laugh them to scorn: yea even the Lord himself shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Sion.
¶ As for me, I will preach the law, whereof the LORD hath said unto me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee. Desire of me, and I shall give thee the Heathen for thine inheritance; Yea the uttermost parts of the world for thy possession. Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and break them in pieces like an earthen vessel.
¶ Be wise now therefore, O ye kings, be warned, ye that are judges of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice before him with reverence. Kiss the Son, lest the Lord be angry, and so ye perish from the right way. For his wrath shall be kindled shortly: blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
