PSALMS - Chapter 21

1 - The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
2 - Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.
3 - For thou preventest him with the blessings of goodness: thou settest a crown of pure gold on his head.
4 - He asked life of thee, and thou gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.
5 - His glory is great in thy salvation: honour and majesty hast thou laid upon him.
6 - For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.
7 - For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
8 - Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
9 - Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.
10 - Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men.
11 - For they intended evil against thee: they imagined a mischievous device, which they are not able to perform.
12 - Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, when thou shalt make ready thine arrows upon thy strings against the face of them.
13 - Be thou exalted, LORD, in thine own strength: so will we sing and praise thy power.
