Epistles to the Cyberchurch - Su Min

To: en & more
From: Su Min
Subject: Psalm 2

My dearest family & friends Grace and peace to you in all the corners of the earth, North, South, East, West: Bangkok, Singapore, London or in the air!

The 2nd Psalm is most enjoyed in the amplified version where we see how clearly the coming Messiah is prophesied:

  1. Why do the nations assemble with commotion [uproar and confusion of voices], and why do the people imagine (meditate upon and devise an empty scheme?
  2. The kings of the earth take their places; the rulers take council together against the Lord and His Anointed One (the Messiah, the Christ). They say
  3. Let us break Their bands [of restraint] asunder and cast Their cords [of control] from us.
  4. He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [and in supreme contempt He mocks them].
  5. He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury saying
  6. Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King (firmly) on My holy hill of Zion.
  7. I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day [I declare] I have begotten You.
  8. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession.
  9. You shall break them with a rod of iron; you shall dash them into pieces like potters ware.
  10. Now therefore, O you kings, act wisely; be instructed and warned, O you rulers of the earth.
  11. Serve the Lord with reverent awe and wonder and worshipful fear; rejoice and be in high spirits with trembling [lest you displease Him].
  12. Kiss the Son [pay homage to Him in purity] lest He be angry and you perish in the way, for soon shall His wrath be kindled. O blessed (happy fortunate and to be envied) are all those who seek refuge and put their trust in Him!
Let us close in prayer

(love, Su Min)
