Through Your Strength
For the end times, to the Pure and Shining One
David’s poem of praise # 21 Think of this song as a praise song to Jesus, our true King.
1Yahweh, because of your strength the king is strong.
Look how he rejoices in you!
He bursts out with a joyful song because of your victory!
2For you have given him his heart’s desire,
anything and everything he asks for.
You haven’t withheld a thing from the king.
Pause in his presence
3Rich blessings overflow with every encounter with you,
and you placed a royal crown of gold upon his head.
4He wanted life # 21:4 This can be viewed as a prophecy of our Lord Jesus asking for resurrection-life. Every verse of this psalm is prophetic, pointing us to Jesus. —you have given it to him and more!
The days of his blessing stretch on one after another, forever!
5You have honored him and made him famous.
Glory-garments are upon him,
and you surround him with splendor and majesty.
6Your victory heaps blessing after blessing upon him.
What joy and bliss he tastes, rejoicing before your face! # 21:6 Or “You make him joyful in joy with your face!”
7For the king trusts in Yahweh,
and he will never stumble, never fall.
The forever-love of the Most High holds him firm.
8Your almighty hands have captured your foes.
You uncovered all who hate you and you seized them.
9-10When you appear before them,
unveiling the radiance of your face,
they will be consumed by the fierce fire of your presence.
Yahweh’s flames will swallow them up.
They and their descendants
will be destroyed by an unrelenting fire.
11We will watch them fail,
for these are the ones who plan their evil schemes against the Lord.
12They will turn and run at the sight of your judgment-arrows
aimed straight at their hearts.
13Rise up and put your might on display!
By your strength we will sing and praise your glorious power!
