Young's Literal Translation
Psalms, Chapter 21

   1: To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. Jehovah, in Thy strength is the king joyful, In Thy salvation how greatly he rejoiceth.
   2: The desire of his heart Thou gavest to him, And the request of his lips Thou hast not withheld. Selah.
   3: For Thou puttest before him blessings of goodness, Thou settest on his head a crown of fine gold.
   4: Life he hath asked from Thee, Thou hast given to him -- length of days, Age-during -- and for ever.
   5: Great [is] his honour in Thy salvation, Honour and majesty Thou placest on him.
   6: For Thou makest him blessings for ever, Thou dost cause him to rejoice with joy, By Thy countenance.
   7: For the king is trusting in Jehovah, And in the kindness of the Most High He is not moved.
   8: Thy hand cometh to all Thine enemies, Thy right hand doth find Thy haters.
   9: Thou makest them as a furnace of fire, At the time of Thy presence. Jehovah in His anger doth swallow them, And fire doth devour them.
   10: Their fruit from earth Thou destroyest, And their seed from the sons of men.
   11: For they stretched out against Thee evil, They devised a wicked device, they prevail not,
   12: For Thou makest them a butt, When Thy strings Thou preparest against their faces.
   13: Be Thou exalted, O Jehovah in, Thy strength, We sing and we praise Thy might!
