For my eyes have seen your salvation,Which you preparedBefore the face of all peoples;A light for revelation to the Gentiles,And the glory of your people Israel.
Psalm 2Why do the nations rage,And the peoples meditate a vain thing?The kings of the earth set themselves,And the rulers take counsel together,Against Yahweh, and against his anointed, saying,Let us break their bonds into pieces,And cast away their cords from us.He that sits in the heavens will laugh:The Lord will hold them in derision.Then will he speak unto them in his wrath,And terrify them in his severe displeasure saying:Yet I have set my kingUpon my holy hill of Zion.I will tell of the decree:Yahweh said to me, You are my son;This day I have begotten you.Ask of me, and I will give you the nations for your inheritance,And the uttermost parts of the earth for your possession.You will break them with a rod of iron;You will dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.Now therefore be wise, O you kings:Be instructed, you judges of the earth.Serve Yahweh with fear,And rejoice with trembling.Kiss the son, Or else he become angry, and you perish in the way,For his wrath will soon be kindled.Blessed are all that take refuge in him.
