1: To the chief Musician, a Psalm of David. The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 2: Thou hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withheld 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, [and] thou gavest [it] to him, [even] length of days for ever and ever. 5: His glory [is] great in thy salvation: honor and majesty hast thou laid upon him. 6: For thou hast made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance. 7: For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved. 8: Thy hand shall find out all thy enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee. 9: Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thy anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, 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 are not able [to perform]. 12: Therefore shalt thou make them turn their back, [when] thou shalt make ready [thy arrows] upon thy strings against the face of them. 13: Be thou exalted, LORD, in thy own strength: [so] will we sing and praise thy power.
