The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

1 WHY ado the 1nations 2rage, And the people plot a 3vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the arulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His bAnointed,1 saying,
3 “Let aus break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.”

4 He who sits in the heavens ashall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.
5 Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:
6 “Yet I have 1set My King 2On My holy hill of Zion.”

7 “I will declare the 1decree: The LORD has said to Me, a‘You are My Son,
