Awake, O rulers of the world/ استيقظوا يا حكام العالم

O kings, presidents and rulers Awake
Because God Almighty ridicules you, and his anger is coming to destroy you.
Hear what the Lord  says:
 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
يا ايها  الملوك و  الرؤساء   و  الحكام  اصحوا
 لان  الله  العلي  القدير يستهزئ بكم،  و  غضبه  قادم  ليحطمكم
اسمعوا  ما  قاله  الرب:
لماذا ارتجت الامم و تفكر الشعوب في الباطل،  قام ملوك الارض و تامر الرؤساء معا على الرب و على مسيحه قائلين ،  لنقطع قيودهما و لنطرح عنا ربطهما.
الساكن في السماوات يضحك،  الرب يستهزئ بهم
حينئذ يتكلم عليهم بغضبه،  و يرجفهم بغيظه
 اما انا فقد مسحت ملكي على صهيون جبل قدسي
 اني اخبر من جهة قضاء الرب.  قال لي انت ابني.  انا اليوم ولدتك.
 اسالني فاعطيك الامم ميراثا لك،  و اقاصي الارض ملكا لك. 
تحطمهم بقضيب من حديد.  مثل اناء خزاف تكسرهم.
 فالان يا ايها الملوك تعقلوا تادبوا يا قضاة الارض 
اعبدوا الرب بخوف. و اهتفوا برعدة.
اقبلوا الابن لئلا يغضب  فتبيدوا من الطريق. لانه عن قليل يتقد غضبه. طوبى لجميع المتكلين عليه
