Chapter 21


<To the chief music-maker. A Psalm. Of David.>\


\21:1\The king will be glad in your strength, O Lord; how great will be his delight in your salvation!


\21:2\You have given him his heart's desire, and have not kept back the request of his lips. (Selah.)


\21:3\For you go before him with the blessings of good things: you put a crown of fair gold on his head.


\21:4\He made request to you for life, and you gave it to him, long life for ever and ever.


\21:5\His glory is great in your salvation: honour and authority have you put on him.


\21:6\For you have made him a blessing for ever: you have given him joy in the light of your face.


\21:7\For the king has faith in the Lord, and through the mercy of the Most High he will not be moved.


\21:8\Your hand will make a search for all your haters; your right hand will be hard on all those who are against you.


\21:9\You will make them like a flaming oven before you; the Lord in his wrath will put an end to them, and they will be burned up in the fire.


\21:10\Their fruit will be cut off from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.


\21:11\For their thoughts were bitter against you: they had an evil design in their minds, which they were not able to put into effect.


\21:12\Their backs will be turned when you make ready the cords of your bow against their faces.


\21:13\Be lifted up, O Lord, in your strength; so will we make songs in praise of your power.
