The Triumphant Messiah
(Acts 4:23–31)

1Why doe the heathen rage, & the people murmure in vaine?

2The Kings of the earth band themselues, and the princes are assembled together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

3Let vs breake their bands, and cast their cordes from vs.

4But he that dwelleth in the heauen, shall laugh: the Lord shall haue them in derision.

5Then shall hee speake vnto them in his wrath, & vexe them in his sore displeasure, saying,

6Euen I haue set my King vpon Zion mine holy mountaine.

7I will declare the decree: that is, the Lord hath said vnto me, Thou art my Sonne: this day haue I begotten thee.

8Aske of me, and I shall giue thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the endes of the earth for thy possession.

9Thou shalt krush them with a scepter of yron, and breake them in pieces like a potters vessell.

10Be wise nowe therefore, ye Kings: be learned ye Iudges of the earth.

11Serue the Lorde in feare, and reioyce in trembling.

12Kisse the sonne, least he be angry, and ye perish in the way, when his wrath shall suddenly burne. blessed are all that trust in him.
