Coronation of the Son
1Why # Ac 4:25-26 do the nations rebel # Or conspire, or 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: # Or anointed one # 1Sm 2:10; 12:3,5; 2Sm 22:51; Ps 18:50; 20:6; 28:8
3“Let us tear off their chains
and free ourselves from their restraints.” # Lit and throw their ropes from us # Is 58:6; Jr 5:5; Nah 1:13
4The One enthroned # 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 consecrated My King # Or 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; # Or me, “You are My son
today I have become Your # Or 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 # Or your inheritance
and the ends of the earth Your # Or your possession. # Jos 23:4; Ps 111:6
9You will break # LXX, Syr, Tg read shepherd them with a rod of iron;
You # Or you will shatter them like pottery.” # Lit a potter’s vessel # 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 # Lit Kiss the Son or He # Or son, otherwise he will be angry
and you will perish in your rebellion, # Lit perish way # Jn 3:18
for His # Or his anger may ignite at any moment. # 2Th 1:7-8
All those who take refuge in Him # Or him are happy. # Ps 5:11; 34:8,22
