1Why do the Goyim rage, and the Amim (peoples) imagine a vain thing? 2The Malchei Eretz rise up in rebellion, and the rulers take counsel together against Hashem and against His Moshiach, saying, 3Let us break their chains asunder, and cast away their fetters from us. 4He that sitteth enthroned in Shomayim laughs; Adonoi hath them in derision. 5Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and distress them in His hot displeasure. 6I have set Malki (My King) upon Tziyon, My Har Kodesh. 7I will declare the chok (decree): Hashem hath said unto me, Thou art Beni (My Son, i.e. Ben HaElohim Moshiach); HaYom (today) I have begotten thee. 8Ask of Me, and I shall give thee the Goyim for thine nachalah, and the uttermost parts of ha'aretz for thy possession. 9Thou shalt rule them with a shevet barzel; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. 10Have seichel now therefore, O ye Melachim; be warned, ye Shoftei Aretz. 11Serve Hashem with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12Kiss the Bar (Ben, Son, [see Hebrew Mishlei 31:2; Ben HaElohim Moshiach; see 2:2,7, above]), lest he be angry, and ye perish from the Derech, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Ashrei are all they that take refuge in him [Moshiach].
