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.”
6 They return in the evening;they growl like dogsand prowl around outside the city. 7 Look, they hurl insults at meand openly threaten to kill me, for they say, “Who hears?” 8 But you, O Lord, laugh in disgust at them; you taunt all the nations. 9 You are my source of strength. I will wait for you. For God is my refuge. 10 The God who loves me will help me; God will enable me to triumph over my enemies.
