Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?||
"Why have the nations raged?"|
(Unknown, 12th Century)
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel
together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the LORD shall have them in
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.||
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son;
this day have I begotten thee.||
Ask of me, and I shall
give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of
the earth for thy possession.||
(2:8-9) "Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance ... Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces
like a potter's vessel."|
If you ask God, he'll force heathens to be your slaves and help you
"dash them in pieces."
(2:12) "Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way."
Kiss the Son or God will get angry and might have to kill you.
Thou shalt break them
with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath
is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
