Why do the gentiles rage,
And the peoples meditate emtiness?
The sovereigns of the earth take their stand,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against Yahweh and against His Messiah,
“Let us tear apart Their bonds,
And throw away Their ropes from us.”
He who is sitting in the heavens laughs,
Yahweh mocks at them.
Then He speaks to them in His wrath,
And troubles them in His rage, saying,
“But I, I have set My Sovereign on Tsiyon,
My set-apart mountain.”
“I inscribe for a law: Yahweh has said to Me,
‘You are My Son, today I have brought You forth.
‘Ask of Me, and I make the gentiles Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth Your possession.
‘Break them with a rod of iron,
Dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel'”
And now, be wise, O sovereigns;
Be instructed, you rulers of the earth.
Serve Yahweh with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest He be enraged,
And you perish in the way,
For soon His wrath is to be kindled.
Blessed are all those taking refuge in Him.
Shabbat Shalom Everyone!
