Psalms 21

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of Dawid.

1 The king shall joy in Your strength, O יהוה; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

2 You have given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

3 For You preventest him with the blessings of goodness; You settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

4 He asked life of you, and you gavest it him, even length of days forever and ever.

5 His glory is great in Your salvation; honor and majesty have You laid upon him.

6 For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him exceeding glad with Your countenance.

7 For the king trusteth in יהוה, and through the mercy of the Most High (Elyon) he shall not be moved.

8 Your hand shall find out all Your enemies; Your right hand shall find out those who hate You.

9 You shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger; יהוה shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

10 Their fruit shalt You destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.

11 For they intended evil against You; they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.

12 Therefore shalt You make them turn their back, when You shalt make ready Your arrows upon Your strings against the face of them.

13 Be You exalted, יהוה, in Your own strength; so will we sing and praise Your power.
