Psalms 21 [Commentary] |
||For the choir director. A Psalm of David. O LORD, in Your strength the king will be glad,
And in Your salvation how greatly he will rejoice!
||You have given him his heart's desire,
And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
||For You meet him with the blessings of good things;
You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
||He asked life of You,
You gave it to him,
Length of days forever and ever.
||His glory is great through Your salvation,
Splendor and majesty You place upon him.
||For You make him most blessed forever;
You make him joyful with gladness in Your presence.
||For the king trusts in the LORD,
And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he will not be shaken.
||Your hand will find out all your enemies;
Your right hand will find out those who hate you.
||You will make them as a fiery oven in the time of your anger;
The LORD will swallow them up in His wrath,
And fire will devour them.
||Their offspring You will destroy from the earth,
And their descendants from among the sons of men.
||Though they intended evil against You
And devised a plot,
They will not succeed.
||For You will make them turn their back;
You will aim with Your bowstrings at their faces.
||Be exalted, O LORD, in Your strength;
We will sing and praise Your power.
