21 Lord, the king rejoices because of your strength; he is so happy when you ·save him [give him victory/help]! 2 You gave the king ·what he wanted [L the desire of his heart] and did not ·refuse [withhold] ·what he asked for [L the request of his lips]. ·Selah[Interlude]
3 You put ·good things [rich blessings] before him and placed a gold crown on his head. 4 He asked you for life, and you gave it to him, ·so his years go on and on [L length of days forever and ever]. 5 He has great glory because you gave him ·victories [help]; you gave him ·honor [splendor] and ·praise [majesty]. 6 You ·always [forever] gave him blessings; you made him glad because ·you were with him [L of the joy of your presence]. 7 The king truly ·trusts [has confidence in] the Lord. Because God Most High always ·loves [is loyal toward] him, he will not be ·overwhelmed [moved]. 8 Your hand ·is against [L will find out] all your enemies; ·those who hate you will feel your power [L your right hand will find out those who hate you]. 9 When ·you [L the Lord] appear, you will burn them as in a furnace. In your anger you will swallow them up, and fire will burn them up. 10 You will destroy their ·families [offspring] from the earth; their ·children [L seed] will not live. 11 They made evil plans against you, but ·their traps [L the schemes they devise] won’t ·work [succeed]. 12 You will make them turn their backs when you aim your arrows at ·them [L their faces]. 13 Be ·supreme [exalted], Lord, in your power. We sing and praise your ·greatness [strength].
