Psalm 2

Psalm 2

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

1
Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?

2
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,

3
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

4
He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.

5
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:

6
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”

7
“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.

8
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

9
You shall break[a] them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’”

10
Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.

11
Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.

12
Kiss the Son,[b] lest [c] He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him.
