1-Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2-The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take council together, against the lord, and against his anointed, saying,

3-Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4-He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

5-Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6-Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zi’on.

7-I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8-Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9-Thou shalt break them with a rod  in of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

10-Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11-Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12-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.

Be wise of vain people. Be wise of rulers that go against the Lord. Stay with the Lord. Fear the Lord, as this is a sign of faith. God will cast out our enemies. Ask of the Lord, and it will be given.  The Son will kindle against the non-believers. Trust in the Lord. Proverbs28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool; but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

Psalms 25:2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.


A collection of 150 psalms, whose Hebrew name is “The Book of Praise.” Authors of individual psalms include David, Solomon, Moses, Asaph, and others who are anonymous. The variety and unity of Psalms have given this book a unique place in the devotional life of the individual and the Church. Almost every aspect of man’s relation to God is depicted in these poems: simple trust, the sense of sin, appeal to a higher power in time of trouble, and the conviction that the world is in the hands of a  loving God.
