Coronation of the Son
1 Why do the nations rebel[a] and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand, and the rulers conspire together against the Lord and His Anointed One:[b] 3 “Let us tear off their chains and free ourselves from their restraints.”[c]
7 I will declare the Lord’s decree: He said to Me, “You are My Son;[f] today I have become Your[g] Father. 8 Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your[h] inheritance and the ends of the earth Your[i] possession. 9 You will break[j] them with a rod of iron; You[k] will shatter them like pottery.”[l]
10 So now, kings, be wise; receive instruction, you judges of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with reverential awe and rejoice with trembling. 12 Pay homage to[m] the Son or He[n] will be angry and you will perish in your rebellion,[o] for His[p] anger may ignite at any moment. All those who take refuge in Him[q] are happy.
