Psalms - Chapter 21

O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give!   1

You have granted him the desire of his heart and have not withheld the request of his lips.   2

You welcomed him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.   3

He asked you for life, and you gave it to him, length of days, for ever and ever.   4

Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.   5

Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence.   6

For the king trusts in the LORD; through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken.   7

Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes.   8

At the time of your appearing you will make them like a fiery furnace. In his wrath the LORD will swallow them up, and his fire will consume them.   9

You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind.   10

Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed;   11

for you will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow.   12

Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength; we will sing and praise your might.   13
