Tree of Life Version
The Victorious King
1 For the music director, a psalm of David.
2 Adonai, the king rejoices in Your strength!
How greatly he delights in Your salvation.
3 You granted him his heart’s desire,
and You did not withhold the request of his lips. Selah
4 For You met him with the best blessings.
You set on his head a crown of pure gold.
5 He asked You for life, You gave it to him,
length of days forever and ever.
6 His glory is great through Your salvation.
Honor and majesty You bestow on him.
7 For You bestow on him eternal blessings,
gladden him with joy in Your presence.
8 For the king trusts in Adonai,
and in the lovingkindness of Elyon
he will not be shaken.
9 Your hand will find all your enemies.
Your right hand will overtake those who hate You.
10 You will make them like a fiery furnace
at the time of your appearing.
In His wrath Adonai will swallow them up
and fire will consume them.
11 You destroy their offspring from earth,
their seed from the children of men.
12 Though they intended evil against You
and devised a plot, they cannot succeed.
13 For You make them turn their backs.
You aim Your bowstrings at their faces.
14 Be exalted, Adonai, in Your strength!
We will sing and praise Your might.
