Our LORD Eyesus Kristos, Yehoshua, THE RIGHTEOUS MAN in the Wisdom of Solomon

Our LORD Eyesus Kristos, Yehoshua
Then the RIGHTEOUS MAN will stand with great confidence
in the presence of those who have afflicted him,
and those who make light of his labors.
[2] When they see him, they will be shaken with dreadful fear,
and they will be amazed at his unexpected salvation.
[3] They will speak to one another in repentance,
and in anguish of spirit they will groan, and say,
[4] "This is the man whom we once held in derision
and made a byword of reproach -- we fools!
We thought that his life was madness
and that his end was without honor.
[5] Why has he been numbered among the sons of God?
And why is his lot among the saints?
[6] So it was we who strayed from the way of truth,
and the light of righteousness did not shine on us,
and the sun did not rise upon us.
[7] We took our fill of the paths of lawlessness and destruction,
and we journeyed through trackless deserts,
but the way of the Lord we have not known.
[8] What has our arrogance profited us?
And what good has our boasted wealth brought us?
-          Wisdom of Solomon 5.1-8 RSV

1Why do the nations rage, And the peoples meditate a vain thing?
2The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against JAH, and against his anointed, [saying],
3Let us break their bonds asunder, And cast away their cords from us.
4He that sitteth in the heavens will laugh: The Lord will have them in derision.
5Then will he speak unto them in his wrath, And vex them in his sore displeasure:.
6Yet I have set my king Upon my holy hill of Zion.
7I will tell of the decree: JAH said unto me, Thou art my son; This day have I begotten thee.
8Ask of me, and I will give [thee] the nations for thine inheritance, And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.
10Now therefore be wise, O ye kings: Be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11Serve JAH with fear, And rejoice with trembling.
12Kiss the son, lest he be angry, and ye perish in the way, For his wrath will soon be kindled. Blessed are all they that take refuge in him.

-          Psalm 2 ASV
