Psalms 211For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The king shall joy in thy strength, O Jehovah; And in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 2Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, And hast not withholden the request of his lips. [[Selah 3For thou meetest him with the blessings of ▼ goodness: Thou settest a crown of fine gold on his head. ▼
▼1) Or good things4He asked life of thee, thou gavest it him, Even length of days for ever and ever. 5His glory is great in thy salvation: Honor and majesty dost thou lay upon him. 6For thou ▼ makest him most blessed for ever: Thou makest him glad with joy in thy presence. ▼
▼1) Heb settest him to be blessings ; See Ge 12:27For the king trusteth in Jehovah; And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he shall not be moved. 8Thy hand will find out all thine enemies; Thy right hand will find out those that hate thee. 9Thou wilt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine ▼ anger: Jehovah will swallow them up in his wrath, And the fire shall devour them. ▼
▼1) Or presence ; Heb countenance10Their fruit wilt thou destroy from the earth, And their seed from among the children of men. 11For they intended evil against thee; They conceived a device which they are not able to perform. 12For thou wilt make them turn their back; Thou wilt make ready with thy bowstrings against their face. 13Be thou exalted, O Jehovah, in thy strength: So will we sing and praise thy power.
