"Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles."
King James Bible
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
American Standard Version
Let us break their bonds asunder, And cast away their cords from us.
Young's Literal Translation
'Let us draw off Their cords, And cast from us Their thick bands.'
Psalm 2:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Let us break their bands - These are the words of the confederate heathen powers; and here, as Bishop Horne well remarks, "we may see the ground of opposition; namely, the unwillingness of rebellious nature to submit to the obligations of Divine laws, which cross the interests, and lay a restraint on the desires of men. Corrupt affections are the most inveterate enemies of Christ, and their language is, We will not have this man to reign over us. Doctrines would be readily believed if they involved in them no precepts; and the Church may be tolerated in the world if she will only give up her discipline."
