Praise for Salvation.
For the music director. A Psalm of David.
21 Lord, in Your strength the king will (A)be glad,
And in Your [a]salvation how greatly he will rejoice!
2 You have (B)given him his heart’s desire,
And You have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah
3 For You (C)meet him with the blessings of good things;
You set a (D)crown of pure gold on his head.
4 He asked for life from You,
You (E)gave it to him,
(F)Length of days forever and ever.
5 His (G)glory is great through Your [b]salvation,
(H)Splendor and majesty You place upon him.
6 For You make him [c]most (I)blessed forever;
You make him joyful (J)with the joy of Your presence.
7 For the king (K)trusts in the Lord,
And through the faithfulness of the Most High (L)he will not be shaken.
8 Your hand will (M)find all your enemies;
Your right hand will find those who hate you.
9 You will make them (N)as a fiery oven in the time [d]of your anger;
The Lord will (O)swallow them up in His wrath,
And (P)fire will devour them.
10 You will eliminate their [e]descendants from the earth,
And their [f](Q)children from among the sons of mankind.
11 Though they [g](R)intended evil against You
And (S)devised a plot,
They will not succeed.
12 For You will (T)make them turn their back;
You will take aim at their faces (U)with Your bowstrings.
13 Be exalted, Lord, in Your strength;
We will (V)sing and praise Your power.
