For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

[1] THE King shall joy in thy strength, O 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 meetest him with the blessings of goodness:〖Or, good things.〗

Thou settest a crown of fine gold on his head.

[4] He asked life of thee, thou gavest it him,

Even length of days for ever and ever.

[5] His glory is great in thy salvation:

Honor and majesty dost thou lay upon him.

[6] For thou makest〖Heb. settest him to be blessings. See Gen. 12. 2.〗 him most blessed for ever:

Thou makest him glad with joy in thy presence.

[7] For the king trusteth in Jehovah;

And through the lovingkindness of the Most High he shall not be moved.

[8] Thy hand will find out all thine enemies;

Thy right hand will find out those that hate thee.

[9] Thou wilt make them as a fiery furnace in the time of thine anger:〖Or, presence.Heb. countenance.〗

Jehovah will swallow them up in his wrath,

And the fire shall devour them.

[10] Their fruit wilt thou destroy from the earth,

And their seed from among the children of men.

[11] For they intended evil against thee;

They conceived a device which they are not able to perform.

[12] For thou wilt make them turn their back;

Thou wilt make ready with thy bowstrings against their face.

[13] Be thou exalted, O Jehovah, in thy strength:

So will we sing and praise thy power.
