1: (To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.) The king shall joy in thy strength, Jehovah; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice. 2: Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah. 3: For thou hast met him with the blessings of goodness; thou hast set a crown of pure gold on his head. 4: He asked life of thee; thou gavest [it] him, length of days for ever and ever. 5: His glory is great through thy salvation; majesty and splendour hast thou laid upon him. 6: For thou hast made him to be blessings for ever; thou hast filled him with joy by thy countenance. 7: For the king confideth in Jehovah: and through the loving-kindness of the Most High he shall not be moved. 8: Thy hand shall find out all thine enemies; thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9: Thou shalt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thy presence; Jehovah shall swallow them up in his anger, and the fire shall devour them: 10: Their fruit shalt thou destroy from the earth, and their seed from among the children of men. 11: For they intended evil against thee; they imagined a mischievous device, which they could not execute. 12: For thou wilt make them turn their back; thou wilt make ready thy bowstring against their face. 13: Be thou exalted, Jehovah, in thine own strength: we will sing and celebrate thy power.
