tehilim 021


1. To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
2. The king has joy in your strength, O Lord; and in your salvation how greatly he rejoices!
3. You have given him his heart’s desire, and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
4. For you meet him with the blessings of goodness; you set a crown of pure gold on his head.
5. He asked life of you, and you gave it to him, length of days for ever and ever.
6. His glory is great in your salvation; honor and majesty have you laid on him.
7. For you have made him most blessed for ever; you have made him glad with your countenance.
8. For the king trusts in the Lord, and through the loving kindness of the most High he shall not be moved.
9. Your hand shall find out all your enemies; your right hand shall find out those who hate you.
10. You shall make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger; the Lord shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
11. Their fruit shall you destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
12. For they intended evil against you; they planned an evil scheme, but they will not succeed.
13. For you shall make them turn their back; you shall aim your bowstrings against their faces.
14. Be exalted, Lord, in your own strength! We will sing and praise your power.
