Psalm 002

1    Why rage the heathen? and vain things

          why do the people mind?

2    Kings of the earth do set themselves,

          and princes are combin’d,

     To plot against the Lord, and his

          Anointed, saying thus,

3    Let us asunder break their bands,

          and cast their cords from us.


4    He that in heaven sits shall laugh;

          the Lord shall scorn them all.

5    Then shall he speak to them in wrath,

          in rage he vex them shall.

6    Yet, notwithstanding, I have him

          to be my King appointed;

     And over Sion, my holy hill,

          I have him King anointed.

7    The sure decree I will declare:

          The Lord hath said to me,

     Thou art mine only Son; this day

          I have begotten thee.

8    Ask of me, and for heritage

          the heathen I’ll make thine;

     And, for possession, I to thee

          will give earth’s utmost line.

9    Thou shalt, as with a weighty rod

          of iron, break them all;

     And, as a potter’s sherd, thou shalt

          them dash in pieces small.

10   Now therefore, kings, be wise; be taught,

          ye judges of the earth:

11   Serve God in fear, and see that ye

          join trembling with your mirth.

12   Kiss ye the Son, lest in his ire

          ye perish from the way,

     If once his wrath begin to burn:

          bless’d all that on him stay.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
