Psalm 2:1-2; Psalm 2:4

The Reign of the Lord's Anointed

rWhy do sthe nations rage1

and the peoples plot in vain?

The kings of the earth set themselves,

and the rulers take counsel together,

against the Lord and against his tAnointed, saying,


He who vsits in the heavens wlaughs;

the Lord holds them in derision.
