2 The kings of the earth form a united front; the rulers collaborate against the Lord and his anointed king. 3 They say, “Let’s tear off the shackles they’ve put on us. Let’s free ourselves from their ropes.” 4 The one enthroned in heaven laughs in disgust; the Lord taunts them. 5 Then he angrily speaks to them and terrifies them in his rage, saying, 6 “I myself have installed my king on Zion, my holy hill.”
11 But the oppressed will possess the land and enjoy great prosperity. 12 Evil men plot against the godly and viciously attack them. 13 The Lord laughs in disgust at them, for he knows that their day is coming. 14 Evil men draw their swords and prepare their bows, to bring down the oppressed and needy, and to slaughter those who are godly. 15 Their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.
