Psalm 2

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed.

1Why are the [a]nations in an uproar
And the peoples devising a vain thing?
The kings of the earth take their stand
And the rulers take counsel together
Against the Lord and against His [b]Anointed, saying,
“Let us tear their fetters apart
And cast away their cords from us!”

He who [c]sits in the heavens laughs,
The Lord scoffs at them.
Then He will speak to them in His anger
And terrify them in His fury, saying,
“But as for Me, I have [d]installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”

“I will surely tell of the [e]decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the [f]nations as Your inheritance,
And the very ends of the earth as Your possession.
‘You shall [g]break them with a [h]rod of iron,
You shall shatter them like [i]earthenware.’”

10 Now therefore, O kings, show discernment;
Take warning, O [j]judges of the earth.
11 [k]Worship the Lord with [l]reverence
And rejoice with trembling.
12 [m]Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For His wrath may [n]soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!

诗篇 2

上帝膏立的君王

1列国为何咆哮?
万民为何枉费心机?
世上的君王一同行动,
官长聚集商议,
要抵挡耶和华和祂所膏立的王。
他们说:
“让我们挣断他们的锁链,
脱去他们的捆索!”
坐在天上宝座上的主必笑他们,
祂必嘲笑他们。
那时,祂必怒斥他们,
使他们充满恐惧。
祂说:
“在我的锡安圣山上,
我已立了我的君王。”
那位君王说:
“我要宣告耶和华的旨意,
祂对我说,‘你是我的儿子,
我今日成为你父亲。
你向我祈求,我必把列国赐给你作产业,
让天下都归你所有。
你要用铁杖统治他们,
把他们像陶器一般打碎。’”
10 君王啊,要慎思明辨!
世上的统治者啊,要接受劝诫!
11 要以敬畏的心事奉耶和华,
要喜乐也要战战兢兢。
12 要降服在祂儿子面前,
免得祂发怒,
你们便在罪恶中灭亡,
因为祂的怒气将临。
投靠祂的人有福了!
