Psalm Sunday – Psalm 2

My response to Psalm 2 is a slightly modified villanelle form

~~

Rise up oh nations. Rage and march to war
Rebel against the Most High if you dare!
Wage your battles before you are no more

What is it about goodness you abhor
That you plot violence in your hidden lair…
Why nations, do you rage and march to war?

Your plans are foolish – facts that you ignore
Your force is weaker than you are aware
(So) wage your battles before you are no more

God’s laughter shakes the world down to its core
His wrath is kindled, peoples, so beware
Oh nations, must you rage and march to war?

Like a clay pot that’s thrown to the floor
Will be your army: shattered earthenware
Wage your battles before you are no more

Turn to the one the whole earth should adore
Lest God, to you in anger should declare:
“Rise up, oh nations. Rise and march to war.
Wage your battles. Soon you will be no more.”

One thought on “Psalm Sunday – Psalm 2

  1. Well done, Bryan. Is there anything more futile than man’s plans against God’s sovereign decrees? How we long for our Savior’s return and the end of man’s rebellion!
