Amplified Bible

Psalm 2

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.

1Why are the [a]nations in an [b]uproar [in turmoil against God],
And why do the people devise a vain and hopeless plot?

The kings of the earth take their stand;
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and His Anointed (the Davidic King, the Messiah, the Christ), saying,

“Let us break apart their [divine] bands [of restraint]
And cast away their cords [of control] from us.”


He who sits [enthroned] in the heavens laughs [at their rebellion];
The [Sovereign] [c]Lord scoffs at them [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].

Then He will speak to them in His [profound] anger
And terrify them with His displeasure, saying,

“Yet as for Me, I have anointed and firmly installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”


“I will declare the decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son;
This day [I proclaim] I have begotten You.

‘Ask of Me, and I will assuredly give [You] the nations as Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth as Your possession.

‘You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall shatter them [in pieces] like earthenware.’”

10 
Now therefore, O kings, act wisely;
Be instructed and take warning, O leaders (judges, rulers) of the earth.
11 
Worship the Lord and serve Him with reverence [with awe-inspired fear and submissive wonder];
Rejoice [yet do so] with trembling.
12 
Kiss (pay respect to) the [d]Son, so that He does not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may soon be kindled and set aflame.
How blessed [fortunate, prosperous, and favored by God] are all those who take refuge in Him!

  4. Psalm 2:12 The word in the original is bar, taken to be the Aramaic for “son.” But it is surprising that an Aramaic word would be used here. The ancient rabbis maintained that a different word with the same spelling in Hebrew was intended, whose meaning is “pure.” They claimed that it is a reference to the Torah, on the ground that all the words in the Torah are pure.

시편 2

메시아의 승리와 그의 왕국

1어째서 이방 나라들이
떠들어대며 민족들이
헛된 일을 꾸미는가?
세상의 왕들이 들고 일어나며
지도자들이 함께 모여
여호와와 그의 기름 부은 자를
대적하여
“자, 우리가
[a]그의 사슬을 끊어 버리고
그의 속박에서
벗어나자” 하는구나.

하늘에 계신 여호와께서 웃으시며
그들을 비웃으신다.
그러고서 분노하사
그들을 꾸짖고 놀라게 하시며
“내가 나의 거룩한 산 시온에
내 왕을 세웠다” 하시는구나.

[b]여호와께서 택하신 왕이
대답하신다.
“여호와께서 선포하신 것을
내가 알리노라.
그가 나에게 말씀하셨다.
‘너는 내 아들이다.
오늘 내가 너를 낳았다.
나에게 구하라.
내가 모든 나라를 너에게 줄 것이니
온 세상이 네 소유가 되리라.
네가 쇠막대기로 그들을 다스리며
질그릇같이 부숴 버릴 것이다.’ ”

10 세상의 왕들과 지도자들아,
이제 너희는 이 경고를 듣고
교훈을 얻어라.
11 여호와를 두려운 마음으로 섬기고
떨며 즐거워하여라.
12 그 아들에게 입맞추어라.
그렇지 않으면
그의 분노가 순식간에 터져
너희가 망할 것이다.
여호와를 의지하는 자는
복이 있으리라.
