1Melech shall have simcha in Thy strength, Hashem; and in Thy Yeshuah (salvation) how greatly shall he rejoice! 2[3] Thou hast given him the desire of his lev, and hast not withheld the request of his lips. Selah. 3[4] For Thou meeteth him with the birkhot tov; Thou settest an ateret of pure gold on his head. 4[5] He asked Chayyim of Thee, and Thou gavest it him, even length of yamim olam va'ed [see 1C 15:4; Ps 16:10]; 5[6] Gadol is his kavod in Thy Yeshuah (salvation); hod v'hadar hast Thou bestowed upon him. 6[7] For Thou hast made him birkhot forever; Thou hast made him exceeding glad with simcha in Thy presence. 7[8] For HaMelech trusteth in Hashem, and through the chesed of Elyon he shall not be moved. 8[9] Thine yad shall find out all thine enemies; thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9[10] Thou shalt make them like an oven of eish in the time of thine presence; Hashem shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the eish shall devour them. 10[11] Their fruit shalt Thou destroy from ha'aretz, and their zera from among Bnei Adam. 11[12] For they intended ra'ah against Thee; they devised a plot, which they are not able to perform. 12[13] Ki (therefore) shalt Thou make them turn their backs, when Thou shalt aim Thine bowstrings at their faces. 13[14] Be Thou exalted, Hashem, in Thine Own Strength; so will we sing and praise Thy gevurah (power).
