Psalm 2, a sonnet

The nations rage and peoples vainly plot,
And kings of earth will take all of the day,
They talk against God and his Son. They say:
Let’s burst or chains and escape from this lot.
The Lord who sits in in heaven laughs at will,
He holds them in derision. We shall see.
Him terrify them, saying, “As for me
I’ve set my king on Zion’s holy hill.”
He said to me, “You are my son today,
I have begotten you, now ask me lad.
To break, to dash, the world for your possessing.”
Kings of the earth be warned, do not dismay,
With fear now serve the Lord, go and be glad,
Take refuge in him and you will have blessing.
