Psalm 2:7-12

View Full Chapter

7I will proclaim the LORD ’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father.

8Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.

9You will break them with a rod of iron Or will rule them with an iron scepter (see Septuagint and Syriac) ; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

10Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth.

11Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. 12Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
