Psalm 21
O LORD, in your strength the king shall rejoice, *
and in your salvation how greatly he exults!
You have given him his heart’s desire *
and have not withheld the request of his lips.
For you meet him with rich blessings; *
you set a crown of fine gold on his head.
He asked you for life, and you gave it to him, *
length of days for ever and ever.
His glory is great through your salvation; *
splendor and majesty you have bestowed upon him.
For you have made him a blessing forever; *
you make him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the LORD, *
and through the mercy of the Most High he shall not be moved.
Your hand will find out all your enemies; *
your right hand will find out all those who hate you.
You will make them as a blazing oven *
in the time of your presence.
The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath, *
and the fire will devour them.
You will destroy their descendants from the earth, *
their seed from among the sons of man.
Though they intended evil against you, *
though they devised a plot, they will not succeed.
For you will put them to flight; *
you will aim your arrows at their faces.
Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength! *
We will sing and praise your power.
