Psalms 2

Psalm 2
Coronation of the Son
1Why#Ac 4:25–26 do the nations rage#Is 17:12–13
and the peoples plot in vain?#Ps 83:2–3
2The kings of the earth take their stand,#Jr 49:19; 50:44
and the rulers conspire together
against the Lord and his Anointed One:#2:2 Or anointed one#1Sm 2:10; 12:3,5; 2Sm 22:51; Ps 18:50; 20:6; 28:8
3“Let’s tear off their chains
and throw their ropes off of us.”#Is 58:6; Jr 5:5; Nah 1:13
4The one enthroned#2:4 Lit who sits in heaven laughs;
the Lord ridicules them.#Ps 37:13; 59:8
5Then he speaks to them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath:#Ps 90:7
6“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”#Ps 48:2; Is 24:23
7I will declare the Lord’s decree.
He said to me, “You are my Son;#2:7 Or son, also in v. 12
today I have become your Father.#Mt 3:17; Lk 3:22; Ac 13:33; Heb 1:5; 5:5
8Ask of me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance
and the ends of the earth your possession.#Jos 23:4; Ps 111:6
9You will break them with an iron scepter;
you will shatter them like pottery.”#Ps 89:23; Rv 2:26–27; 12:5; 19:15
10So now, kings, be wise;
receive instruction, you judges of the earth.
11Serve the Lord with reverential awe
and rejoice with trembling.#Heb 12:28
12Pay homage to#2:12 Lit Kiss the Son or he will be angry
and you will perish in your rebellion,#2:12 Lit perish in the way#Jn 3:18
for his anger may ignite at any moment.#2Th 1:7–8
All who take refuge in him are happy.#Ps 5:11; 34:8,22
