To the Chief Musician. A Psalm Of David
1 O Jehovah! in thy strength rejoice shall the king, And in thy salvation how greatly shall he exult!
2 The desire of his heart thou hast given him, And what he uttered with his lips, thou hast not denied him. Selah.
3 For thou shalt prevent him with blessings of good; Thou shalt place upon his head a crown of gold.
4 Life he asked from thee; Thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.
5 Great is his glory in thy salvation: Splendor and beauty thou hast put upon him.
6 For thou hast set him [to be] blessings for ever: Thou hast gladdened him with joy before thy countenance.
7 For the king trusteth in Jehovah; And through the goodness of the Most High, he shall not be moved
8 Find out shall thy hand all thy enemies; Thy right hand shall find out thy haters.
9 Thou shalt put them as in a furnace of fire in the time of thy wrath, O Jehova! In his wrath he shall overwhelm them, And consume them shall the fire.
10 Their fruit from the earth thou wilt destroy, And their seed from among the sons of men.
11 For they have spread out against thee evil; They have devised against thee a stratagem which they could not accomplish.
12 For thou wilt set them as a butt; On thy strings thou shalt make ready thy arrows against their faces.
13 Be thou exalted, O Jehovah! in thy strength, Then we will sing and celebrate in psalms thy power.
