3 True blessings You lavished upon the king; a crown of precious gold You placed upon his head. 4 His prayer was to live fully. You responded with even more— a never-ending life to enjoy. 5 With Your help, his fame and glory have grown; You raise him high and cover him in majesty. 6 You shower him with blessings that last forever; he finds joy in knowing Your presence and loving You. 7 For the king puts his trust in the Eternal, so he will not be shaken because of the persistent love of the Most High God.
8 King, your hand will reach for all your enemies; your right hand will seize all who hate you. 9 When you arrive at the battle’s edge, you will seem to them a furnace. For the fire of the Eternal’s anger, the heat of His wrath will burn and consume them. 10 You will cut off their children, lop off the branches of their family tree. The earth will never know them, nor will they ever be numbered among Adam’s kin. 11 When they scheme against you, when they conspire their mischief, such efforts will be in vain. 12 At the sight of you, they will sound the retreat; your bows, drawn back, will aim directly at their faces.
13 Put Your strength, Eternal One, on display for all to see; we will sing and make music of Your mighty power.
21:2Literally, selah, likely a musical direction from a Hebrew root meaning “to lift up”
