Why do the heathen so furiously | rage together?
* and why do the people im- | -agine• a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth stand up, and the rulers take | counsel• together
* against the LORD, and a- | -gainst his Anointed:
3 Let us break their | bonds asunder,
* and cast a- | -way their cords from us.
4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall | laugh them• to scorn:
* the Lord shall | have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them | in his wrath,
* and vex them | in his sore displeasure:
6 Yet have I | set my King
* upon my | holy hill of Sion.
7 I will rehearse | the decree;
* the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son, this day have | I begotten thee.
8 Desire of me, and I shall give thee the nations for | thine inheritance,
* and the utmost parts of the | earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt bruise them with a | rod of iron,
* and break them in pieces | like a potter's vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, | O ye kings;
* be instructed, ye that are | judges of the earth.
11 Serve the | LORD in fear,
* and rejoice | unto him with reverence.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and so ye perish from the right way, if his wrath be kindled, yea | but a little.
* Blessed are all they that | put their trust in him.
Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,
* and | to the Holy Ghost,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,
* world without | end. Amen.
