Thou shalt rule them with a rod of iron,
and shalt break them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
And now, O ye kings, understand:
receive instruction, you that judge the earth.
Serve ye the Lord with fear:
and rejoice unto him with trembling.
Embrace discipline, lest at any time the Lord be angry,
and you perish from the just way.
When His wrath shall be kindled in a short time,
blessed are all they that trust in Him.
