“But as for Me, I have [a]installed (A)My King
Upon Zion, (B)My holy mountain.”

“I will surely tell of the [b]decree of the Lord:
He said to Me, ‘You are (C)My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
‘Ask of Me, and (D)I will surely give (E)the [c]nations as Your inheritance,
And the very (F)ends of the earth as Your possession.
‘You shall [d](G)break them with a [e]rod of iron,
You shall (H)shatter them like [f]earthenware.’”

10 Now therefore, O kings, (I)show discernment;
Take warning, O [g]judges of the earth.
11 [h]Worship the Lord with [i](J)reverence
And rejoice with (K)trembling.
12 [j]Do homage to (L)the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way,
For (M)His wrath may [k]soon be kindled.
How blessed are all who (N)take refuge in Him!
