The Victorious King
1For the music director, a psalm of David.
2Adonai, the king rejoices in Your strength! How greatly he delights in Your salvation.
3You granted him his heart’s desire, and You did not withhold the request of his lips. Selah
4For You met him with the best blessings. You set on his head a crown of pure gold.
5He asked You for life, You gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.
6His glory is great through Your salvation. Honor and majesty You bestow on him.
7For You bestow on him eternal blessings, gladden him with joy in Your presence.
8For the king trusts in Adonai, and in the lovingkindness of Elyon he will not be shaken.
9Your hand will find all your enemies. Your right hand will overtake those who hate You.
10You will make them like a fiery furnace at the time of your appearing. In His wrath Adonai will swallow them up and fire will consume them.
11You destroy their offspring from earth, their seed from the children of men.
12Though they intended evil against You and devised a plot, they cannot succeed.
13For You make them turn their backs. You aim Your bowstrings at their faces.
14Be exalted, Adonai, in Your strength! We will sing and praise Your might.
