{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.
