(A psalm by David for the music leader.)

Thanking the Lord for Victory

21 Our Lord, your mighty power
    makes the king glad,
    and he celebrates victories
    that you have given him.
You did what he wanted most
    and never told him “No.”
You truly blessed the king,
    and you placed on him
    a crown of finest gold.
He asked to live a long time,
    and you promised him life
    that never ends.

The king is highly honored.
You have let him win victories
    that have made him famous.
You have given him blessings
    that will last forever,
    and you have made him glad
    by being so near to him.
Lord Most High,
    the king trusts you,
    and your kindness
    keeps him from defeat.

With your mighty arm, Lord,
you will strike down
    all of your hateful enemies.
They will be destroyed by fire
    once you are here,
    and because of your anger,
    flames will swallow them.
10 You will wipe their families
from the earth,
    and they will disappear.
11 All their plans to harm you
    will come to nothing.
12 You will make them run away
    by shooting your arrows
    at their faces.

13 Show your strength, Lord,
    so that we may sing
    and praise your power.
