Psalm 2
King James Bible: Purple Letter EditionERP 
1Why do the nations {heathen} rage, and the peoples imagine a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against His anointed, saying, 3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4He Who sitteth in the heavens shall laugh; the LORD shall have them in derision. 5Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His great {sore} displeasure. 6Yet have I set My King upon My holy hill of Zion. 7I will declare the decree: The LORD hath said unto Me, Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten Thee. 8Ask of Me, and I shall give Thee the nations {heathen} for Thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for Thy possession. 9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

10Be wise now, therefore, O ye kings; be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they who put their trust in Him.
