|<< Psalm 2 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot futility?
2The kings and rulers of the Earth stood up and counseled together against Lord Jehovah and against his Messiah:
3“Let us cut their bands and cast their yoke from us!”
4He who sits in Heaven will laugh and Lord Jehovah will mock them.
5But this he will speak against them in his passion, and in his anger he will trouble them:
6“I have set my King on Zion, on the mountain of my holiness.”
7“To declare concerning my covenant, Lord Jehovah said to me, 'You are my Son and today I have begotten you'.”
8“Ask of me and I shall give you the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the Earth as your Empire.”
9“You shall shepherd them with a scepter of iron and like a potter's vessels you will shatter them.”
10“Now, Kings, be wise, and be instructed, Judges of Earth.”
11“Serve Lord Jehovah in awe, and hold to him with trembling.”
12“Kiss The Son, lest Lord Jehovah be angry, and you be destroyed from his way because his wrath burns even a little; blessed are all who trust upon him.”
