Tehillim (Psalms) 21

Tehillim (Psalms) 21

1The sovereign rejoices in Your strength, O יהוה; And how greatly he exults in Your deliverance!
2You have given him the desire of his heart, And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah.
3For You put before him the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of fine gold on his head.
4He asked life from You, and You gave it to him – Length of days forever and ever.
5Through Your deliverance his esteem is great; You have laid excellency and splendour on him.
6For You have made him most blessed forever; You have made him glad with the joy of Your presence.
7For the sovereign is trusting in יהוה, And through the loving-commitment of the Most High he is not moved.
8Your hand reaches all Your enemies; Your right hand reaches those who hate You.
9You make them as a furnace of fire in the time of Your presence; יהוה does swallow them up in His wrath, And fire does consume them.
10You destroy their fruit from the earth, And their seed from among the sons of men.
11For they held out evil against You; They devised a plot; they do not prevail.
12For You make them turn their back, When You aim with Your bowstring toward their faces.
13Be exalted, O יהוה, in Your strength! We sing and we praise Your might.
