Psalm 21

21
The King Rejoices in the Lord’s Strength
To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.
1O Lord, in your #Ps. 8:2; 28:7, 8 strength the king rejoices,
and in your #Ps. 9:14salvation how greatly he exults!
2You have #Ps. 20:4, 5given him his heart’s desire
and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3For you #Ps. 59:10 meet him with rich blessings;
you set #[2 Sam. 12:30; 1 Chr. 20:2] a crown of #Ps. 19:10fine gold upon his head.
4He asked life of you; you #Ps. 61:6; [2 Sam. 7:19] gave it to him,
# Ps. 91:16; [1 Kgs. 1:31; Neh. 2:3] length of days forever and ever.
5His #Ps. 8:5 glory is great through your salvation;
# Ps. 45:3; 96:6 splendor and majesty you bestow on him.
6For you make him most blessed forever;#21:6 Or make him a source of blessing forever
you make him glad with the #Ps. 45:7; See Ps. 16:11joy of your presence.
7For the king trusts in the Lord,
and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be #Ps. 10:6; 16:8moved.
8Your hand will #[Isa. 10:10]find out all your enemies;
your right hand will find out those who hate you.
9You will make them as #Mal. 4:1; [Ps. 83:14] a blazing oven
when you appear.
The Lord will swallow them up in his #Ps. 2:5 wrath,
and #Ps. 18:8; 50:3; 97:3; Isa. 26:11; [Job 20:26; Dan. 7:10; Hab. 3:5]fire will consume them.
10You #Ps. 34:16; 1 Kgs. 13:34 will destroy their #Ps. 37:28; 109:13; Job 18:16, 17, 19; Isa. 14:20descendants from the earth,
and their offspring from among the children of man.
11Though they plan evil against you,
though they #Ps. 2:1; 10:2devise mischief, they will not succeed.
12For you will put them #Ps. 18:40 to flight;
you will #Ps. 7:12; 11:2aim at their faces with your bows.
13Be exalted, O Lord, in your strength!
We will sing and praise your power.
