CEBCommon English Bible
1Why do the nations rant?
Why do the peoples rave uselessly?
2The earth’s rulers take their stand;
the leaders scheme together
against the LORD and
against his anointed one.
3"Come!" they say.
"We will tear off their ropes
and throw off their chains!"
4The one who rules in heaven laughs;
my Lord makes fun of them.
5But then God speaks to them angrily;
then he terrifies them with his fury:
6"I hereby appoint my king on Zion,
my holy mountain!"
