Psalms 21


The LORD Gives the Desire of the Heart

A psalm to David.

1O  lord, [4in 5your power 3shall be glad 1the 2king]; and over your deliverance he shall exult exceedingly. 2The desire of his heart you gave to him; and the supplication of his lips you did not deprive him. 3For you were [3beforehand 1with 2him] in blessings of graciousness. You put upon his head a crown of [2stone 1precious]. 4[2life 1He asked] of you, and you gave to him duration of days, into the eon of the eon. 5[2is great 1His glory] in your deliverance; glory and majesty you shall place upon him. 6For you shall give to him a blessing into the eon of the eon; you shall gladden him with joy with your countenance. 7For the king hopes upon the  lord, and in the mercy of the highest in no way shall he be shaken. 8May [2be found 1your hand] by all your enemies; [2your right hand 1may] be found by all the ones detesting you. 9For you shall put them as an oven of fire in the time of your person; the  lord in his anger disturbs them, and [2shall devour 3them 1fire]. 10 [2their fruit 3from 4the earth 1You shall destroy]; and their seed from the sons of men. 11For they leaned [2to 3you 1bad things], they argued over plans which in no way might they be able to establish. 12For you shall put of them their back among your residue; you shall prepare their front. 13Be raised up high, O  lord, in your power! We shall sing and strum of your dominations.
