21:1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.
21:2 O the Lord, in Thy strength the king rejoiceth; and in Thy salvation how greatly doth he exult!
21:3 Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and the request of his lips Thou hast not withholden. Selah
21:4 For Thou meetest him with choicest blessings; Thou settest a crown of fine gold on his head.
21:5 He asked life of Thee, Thou gavest it him; even length of days for ever and ever.
21:6 His glory is great through Thy salvation; honour and majesty dost Thou lay upon him.
21:7 For Thou makest him most blessed for ever; Thou makest him glad with joy in Thy presence.
21:8 For the king trusteth in the Lord, yea, in the mercy of the Most High; he shall not be moved.
21:9 Thy hand shall be equal to all thine enemies; thy right hand shall overtake those that hate thee.
21:10 Thou shalt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine anger; the Lord shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
21:11 Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
21:12 For they intended evil against thee, they imagined a device, wherewith they shall not prevail.
21:13 For thou shalt make them turn their back, thou shalt make ready with thy bowstrings against the face of them.
21:14 Be Thou exalted, O the Lord, in Thy strength; so will we sing and praise Thy power.
