Psalms 21

For the end, A Psalm of David.

1 O Lord, the king shall rejoice in Your strength; and in Your salvation he shall greatly exalt. 2You have granted him the desire of his soul, and have not withheld from him the request of his lips. Pause. 3For You have blessed him with blessings of goodness; You have set upon his head a crown of precious stone. 4He asked life of You, and You gave him length of days forever and ever. 5His glory is great in Your salvation; You will crown him with glory and majesty. 6For You will give him a blessing forever and ever; You will gladden him with joy with Your countenance. 7For the king trusts in the Lord, and through the mercy of the Highest he shall not be moved. 8Let Your hand be found by all Your enemies; let Your right hand find all that hate You. 9You shall make them as a fiery oven at the time of Your presence; the Lord shall trouble them in His anger, and fire shall devour them. 10You shall destroy their fruit from the earth, and their seed from among the sons of men. 11For they intended evil against You; they imagined a device which they shall by no means be able to perform. 12For You shall make them turn their back in Your latter end; You will prepare their face. 13Be exalted, O Lord, in Your strength; we will sing and praise Your mighty acts.
