God’s Righteous King

Psalms 1, 2

Blessed is the man 

who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, 

nor stands in the way of sinners, 

nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 

but his delight is in the law of the Lord, 

and on his law he meditates day and night. 

He is like a tree 

planted by streams of water 

that yields its fruit in its season, 

and its leaf does not wither. 

In all that he does, he prospers. 

The wicked are not so, 

but are like chaff that the wind drives away. 

Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, 

nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 

for the Lord knows the way of the righteous, 

but the way of the wicked will perish. 

The Reign of the Lord’s Anointed

Why do the nations rage 

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 Anointed, saying, 

“Let us burst their bonds apart 

and cast away their cords from us.” 

He who sits in the heavens laughs; 

the Lord holds them in derision. 

Then he will speak to them in his wrath, 

and terrify them in his fury, saying, 

“As for me, I have set my King 

on Zion, my holy hill.” 

I will tell of the decree: 

The Lord said to me, “You are my Son; 

today I have begotten you. 

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, 

and the ends of the earth your possession. 

You shall break them with a rod of iron 

and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.” 

10  Now therefore, O kings, be wise; 

be warned, O rulers of the earth. 

11  Serve the Lord with fear, 

and rejoice with trembling. 

12  Kiss the Son, 

lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, 

for his wrath is quickly kindled. 

Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
