The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 2  

2:1 Why have the Gentiles raged, and the people devised vain things?

2:1 Quare fremuerunt gentes et populi meditati sunt inania

2:2 The kings of the earth stood up, and the princes met together, against the Lord and against his Christ.

2:2 Adstiterunt reges terrae et principes convenerunt in unum adversus Dominum et adversus Christum eius

2:3 Let us break their bonds asunder: and let us cast away their yoke from us.

2:3 Disrumpamus vincula eorum et proiciamus a nobis iugum ipsorum

2:4 He that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh at them: and the Lord shall deride them.

2:4 Qui habitat in caelis inridebit eos et Dominus subsannabit eos

2:5 Then shall he speak to them in his anger, and trouble them in his rage.

2:5 Tunc loquetur ad eos in ira sua et in furore suo conturbabit eos

2:6 But I am appointed king by him over Sion his holy mountain, preaching his commandment.

2:6 Ego autem constitutus sum rex ab eo super Sion montem sanctum eius praedicans praeceptum eius

2:7 The Lord hath said to me: Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee.

2:7 Dominus dixit ad me filius meus es tu ego hodie genui te

2:8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the Gentiles for thy inheritance, and the utmost parts of the earth for thy possession.

2:8 Postula a me et dabo tibi gentes hereditatem tuam et possessionem tuam terminos terrae

2:9 Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron, and shalt break them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

2:9 Reges eos in virga ferrea tamquam vas figuli confringes eos

2:10 And now, O ye kings, understand: receive instruction, you that judge the earth.

2:10 Et nunc reges intellegite erudimini qui iudicatis terram

2:11 Serve ye the Lord with fear: and rejoice unto him with trembling.

2:11 Servite Domino in timore et exultate ei in tremore

2:12 Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry, and you perish from the just way.

2:12 Adprehendite disciplinam nequando irascatur Dominus et pereatis de via iusta

2:13 When his wrath shall be kindled in a short time, blessed are all they that trust in him.

2:13 Cum exarserit in brevi ira eius beati omnes qui confidunt in eo
