Psalm 2:8

Hebrew Bible

7 The king says, “I will announce the Lord’s decree. He said to me: ‘You are my son. This very day I have become your father. 8 Ask me, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance, the ends of the earth as your personal property. 9 You will break them with an iron scepter; you will smash them like a potter’s jar.’” 10 So now, you kings, do what is wise; you rulers of the earth, submit to correction.

Revelation 2:26

New Testament

25 However, hold on to what you have until I come. 26 And to the one who conquers and who continues in my deeds until the end, I will give him authority over the nations— 27 he will rule them with an iron rod, and like clay jars he will break them to pieces, 28 just as I have received the right to rule from my Father—and I will give him the morning star.
